George Zimmerman Is Selling The Gun He Used To Shoot Trayvon Martin

George Zimmerman, known for killing black teen Trayvon Martin in an altercation in 2012, is trying to raise money to fight the Black Lives Matter movement and Hillary Clinton. He plans to do it by putting the gun he used to shoot Martin up for auction.

Zimmerman at first attempted to sell the weapon on Gunbroker.com, and the auction was all set to start on Thursday morning. On Wednesday, the page featuring the gun disappeared with no further explanation, and the auction was canceled. Now, the United Gun Group website is listing it for auction, with the bidding opening at $5,000.

Zimmerman killed Martin in 2012 when he followed the teen, thinking he was up to no good. Martin turned and attacked Zimmerman, who fired the gun in self-defense. A jury acquitted Zimmerman, but the case sparked racial controversy (despite the fact that Zimmerman is mixed race) and eventually led to the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I am proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds will be used to: fight BLM violence against Law Enforcement officers, ensure the demise of Angela Correy’s persecution career and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric,” wrote Zimmerman on his former auction's website. “Now is your opportunity to own a piece of American History.”

According to the United Gun Group, as long as the gun is legally owned, it can be legally sold.

“I’m a free American,” said Zimmerman. “I can do what I like with my possessions.”

Fair enough. After the harassment he received after his acquittal, no doubt he likes the idea of rubbing his critics the wrong way.
