    Zimmerman auctioning off gun

    George Zimmerman says he's selling gun used to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin

    Zimmerman receiving death threats for auction
    George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain acquitted of murder charges in the 2012 shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin, said Wednesday he is auctioning off the gun used in the shooting.

    “I recently received it back from the Department of Justice. They took it after my trial, after I was exonerated,” Zimmerman told Fox 35 Orlando.

    Zimmerman told the station the he’s received numerous death threats while in hiding and has received much more after putting the 9mm pistol that was used to kill Marin on Feb. 26, 2012 up for auction.

    “What I’ve decided to do is not cower,” he told Fox 35 Orlando. “I’m a free American. I can do what I want with my possessions."

    An attorney for Martin's family declined to specifically comment on Zimmerman, but did issue a statement to Fox 35 Orlando Wednesday.

    “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."

    The station reported that the starting bid for Zimmerman’s weapon is set at $5,000. He is auctioning it through GunBroker.com, where the item description claims "a portion of the proceeds will be used to fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers, ensure the demise of Angela Correy's persecution career and Hillary Clinton's anti-firearm rhetoric."

    Zimmerman added that “many have expressed interest in owning and displaying the firearm including The Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.”

    “This is a piece of American History. It has been featured in several publications and in current University text books. Offers to purchase the Firearm have been received; however, the offers were to use the gun in a fashion I did not feel comfortable with,” he wrote.

    Zimmerman also claims that the Department of Justice tried to make the gun inoperable, but insists that the weapon remains fully functional and it will come with a letter of authenticity.

    Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in death of Trayvon Martin in July 2013. The Justice Department determined last February that there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Zimmerman with a hate crime in the shooting.

    The acquittal is said to have started the Black Lives Matter movement.

    The auction is set to go live on Thursday at 11 a.m.

      At least the proceeds are going to a good cause.

        Depending on who wins this election that gun can be a very important piece of history.

                  Maybe his life and moral compass is fucked up because he was unjustly persecuted by the racist hatemongers that wanted his head even though he acted lawfully.

                      Reading this I went through several very different opinions on this.
                      At first, I felt it was messed up and inappropriate.
                      ​Then I agree with what Finicky fat Guy said above.
                      I also thought of what Zimmerman said and has gone through and again Finicky Fat Guy has a good point; Zimmerman was wrongly prosecuted even persecuted for defending himself against a thug.
                      Racists have made his life a mess and he's been and is being used by liberal douches as a political target. they don't care if he gets killed as long as it helps them push their agenda.
                      The Justice Dept got involved in this case and the Obama administration and the media tried to fuck this guy because Trayvon was black.
                      If Trayvon was Jeremy Smyth jr whitey cracker honky they wouldn't have given a shit.

                      Another thing that is truly fucked up is this:
                      "
                      “many have expressed interest in owning and displaying the firearm including The Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.”


                      Our own government has a much more fucked up moral compass than Zimmerman. That ,I am sorry to say, I'm really certain about.

                        Fuck that. If you have something that might have value and no longer want it, sell that bitch. So what if this "something" was used to plug a dindu?

                          I don't think anyone could go through the circus that Zimmerman endured and not be messed up in the head. The president, the DOJ, and the media wanted him hanged for defending himself. I can't imagine the mental toll that would take on a person.

                            Did you buy it because someone was killed with it?

                            I just don't understand why this guy wants all of this attention. What happened to him was wrong, but don't you think he would be better served disappearing. His life has been a series of follies since the Trayvon incident. I don't understand why he would want all of this attention.

                              I don't think he wants it. A lot of it is forced on him by those who want to use him as an example of white racism nonsense and I think some of it is out of necessity. His life was destroyed and he is doing what he has to to keep a roof over his head.
