George Zimmerman Asking $100,000 for Gun He Used to Kill Trayvon Martin

ORLANDO, Fl. – Former neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of second degree murder in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin, is once again trying to sell the pistol he used in February of 2012 to shoot and kill the unarmed child in self-defense.

Zimmerman recently tried to sell the semi-automatic Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol on but the auction was suspended after a number of individuals from around the world placed false bids on the weapon, eventually pushing its price from $5,000 to $65 million.

Now Mr. Zimmerman has relisted the handgun on with a starting bid of $100,000. However, potential buyers have the option to forgo the auction entirely and immediately purchase the “American firearm icon” for a modest price of half a million dollars. As an added bonus, Mr. Zimmerman is throwing in fifty shell casings recovered from the Sandy Hook massacre which he initially intended to auction off separately for $2,000 a piece.

George Zimmerman stated that he intends to use the proceeds from the semi-automatic pistol – which carries an MSRP of $225 – and the spent shell casings retrieved from Sandy Hook Elementary School as part of a down payment on a multi-million dollar residence in Coral Gabels, Florida. Zimmerman plans to use the secluded beachfront estate, which comes complete with two tennis courts and a helicopter landing pad, to launch a campaign against gun control and the Black Lives Matter movement.

A source close to Mr. Zimmerman told USA Today on Monday that the thirty-two year-old insurance underwriter is also working with a Florida-based conservative organization that specializes in ‘protecting the Second Amendment’ to establish a defense fund for people who have been convicted – wrongly or otherwise – of killing unarmed children.
