ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Saturday gun sale featuring George Zimmerman as a guest will reportedly go on this weekend, but at a different location.

The event will be held at The Arms Room at 19048 East Colonial Drive at 10 a.m., the store owners said on Friday, and Zimmerman will be attending.

"The New Orlando Gun Show" was originally set to be held at The Majestic on North John Young Parkway, but organizers told WKMG-TV The Majestic canceled their event late Thursday.

"The New Orlando Gun Show" organizers said they have had a year-long contract with The Majestic, but only recently asked Zimmerman to be the featured guest. Promotions for his attendance created controversy.

The organizers will have an emergency court hearing on Friday to prove that "The Majestic" broke its contract.
