George Zimmerman’s lawyer reprimanded him for visiting on Thursday a Kel-Tec factory that makes the type of gun Mr. Zimmerman used to kill 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Mr. Zimmerman was pictured at the plant in Cocoa, Fla., smiling and shaking hands with an employee, TMZ first reported.

“We understand how George visiting the factory that produces the gun used to shoot Trayvon Martin is seen as inappropriate,” a spokesman for attorney Mark O’Mara told Reuters on Friday.

TMZ reported that Mr. Zimmerman was interested in buying a Kel-Tec KSG, a 12-gauge pump-action shotgun, though it is unclear whether he actually left with one.

Mr. Zimmerman, 29, shot Trayvon, who was 17, in the heart with a 9 mm Kel-Tec pistol.
