George Zimmerman Is Auctioning The Gun That Killed Trayvon Martin, Because We Don’t Have Enough To Deal With Today
Just when you thought we were finally done with hearing about this monster, child murderer pops up with more garbage news: George Zimmerman is attempting to sell the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin, CNBC reports.
A “gun broker website” (that I certainly will not name nor send traffic to) has allowed Zimmerman to list the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm weapon that was formerly evidence in a second-degree murder trial. Isn’t the internet great? Isn’t America wonderful? I’m sure no one will bid on it and we’ll all have a great weekend.
“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,” Zimmerman writes. Uh-huh. He lists the gun as “an American firearm icon” and starts the bidding at $5,000. The proceeds from the sale won’t go to Zimmerman, of course. *eye roll* He claims some of the money will instead be used to “fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers.” The rest will go towards stopping the evils of Angela Corey, the prosecutor in his case (or as Zimmerman calls it “the demise of Angela Correy’s persecution career”). And let’s not leave out “Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric.” Don’t you wish you had some of this man’s confidence?
Zimmerman told local news station WOGZ he has received death threats since putting the gun up for auction. Unfortunately, even death threats won’t stop him from securing that $5,000. “What I’ve decided to do is not cower,” he said. “I’m a free American. I can do what I want with my possessions.”
Reached for comment by WOGZ, Trayvon Martin’s family understandably had no comment on Zimmerman. They did offer a statement about gun violence. “The Trayvon Martin Foundation is committed to its mission of ending senseless gun violence in the United States. This election season, we are laser focused on furthering that mission. As such, the foundation has no comment on the actions of that person.”
Twitter, clearly, is not having this BS.
The auction goes live on Thursday at 11:00 AM. Why don’t we all set an alarm and pet an animal or hug a loved one?
