George Zimmerman to Auction Off Gun That Killed Trayvon Martin



Quote:
George Zimmerman says he is auctioning off the pistol he used to kill Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teen whose murder he was acquitted of in 2013.

In an interview with Florida’s WOGX, Zimmerman explained that the Justice Department recently returned the weapon and he believed it was time to “move past the firearm” that he would otherwise “put in a safe for [his] grandkids.”

Zimmerman also said he was unconcerned with how critics might react to the sale.

“They’re not going to be bidding on it, so I couldn’t care less about them,” said Zimmerman.“I’m a free American. I can do what I like with my possessions.”
Quote:
In the auction description, Zimmerman calls the gun “a piece of American History” and makes multiple references to his perceived enemies, including “B. Hussein Obama.”



piece of work huh?

Online auction halted for gun used to kill Trayvon Martin

Quote:
was halted without explanation Thursday for the pistol that former Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman used to kill unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

The weapon was removed from the GunBroker.com website, minutes after the auction was to begin. It was not immediately clear why the website took down the listing. Critics called the planned auction an insensitive move to profit from the slaying.
ya think?

Rumor has it he'll throw in a pack of Skittles to the winning bidder.

Rumor has it he's a complete moron.
But maybe if he sells it, it'll get him off foodstamps before he runs into the crazy lady at the check out and makes her day!

George Zimmerman closes gun auction, doesn't identify winning bid | Fox News

Hope he makes his goal of 100K. He deserves it after almost getting killed by a thug and the false allegations and hate from the left that subsequently ruined his life.

I still say he should include a bag of Skittles to the winning bid...

Just heard on the radio it fetched $130K+

Zimmerman will donate the money to a charity of some sort.

That gun belongs in the Smithsonian where it can be admired by millions. Parents can show it to their kids and teach them that if you grow up to be a thug and try to mug someone you could end up like Trayvon.

You're responding to a year dead thread, but welcome aboard.

Depending on who's telling the story, that gun either didn't sell or sold anywhere between $13,500 to $250,000. The Smithsonian either wasn't asked or wasn't interested.

It's a long gone issue.
