George Zimmerman Auctioning Gun that Killed Trayvon Martin
When I read this headline, I searched desperately for a "The Onion" tag. I ran it through Snopes.com as soon as I possibly could. I thought there was NO WAY that someone would do something so tasteless.
And yet... 'Merica.
Stating, "I'm a free American I can do what I want with my possessions," Zimmerman offered up this "piece of American history" on GunBroker.com. Starting bid $5,000.
According to this article:
Zimmerman wrote that he was “proud to announce” that a portion of the proceeds raised would be used to “fight BLM [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers” as well as ending the career of Angela Corey, his prosecutor – “and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric”.
The saddest thing about this is that the gun will sell; the winning bid, probably astronomical. In my opinion, this is shameless.
