First of all the fact that the police returned the gun to George Zimmerman is ridiculous but it gets worse…now Zimmerman is selling the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin and he calls the gun an “American Firearm Icon”! SMH!!!!
The Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm is listed on GunBroker.com for what’s touted as a single-day auction on Thursday. Opening bid is set at $5,000.
Zimmerman’s not shy about the gun’s history either. His listing on the site includes this: “I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon. The firearm for sale is the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin on 2/26/2012.”
He claims he will use money from the sale to oppose Hillary Clinton‘s campaign, and to fight what he calls Black Lives Matter fueled “violence against Law Enforcement officers.”
This is just sick. To actually sell this gun as though it is a prize piece is so disgusting and twisted. The Martin family needs to get like the Ron Goldman’s family (from the OJ Simpson case) and block everything that Zimmerman tries to use to make money that has anything to do with their son’s death.
UPDATE: George Zimmerman Gun Auction PULLED
Sources close to the Martin family tell TMZ their legal team reached out to gunbroker.com Thursday asking for general info about the sale. We’re told they also asked for the contact info of auction officials. However, our sources say Martin’s team never demanded the auction be canceled.
It’s still unclear why the auction was yanked, but we’ve been told it’s not because someone purchased it already.
