Oh for fuck’s sake, this fucking guy is back in the news.
George Zimmerman — yes, THAT dude — caused a stir on Wednesday evening when he announced that the gun he used to kill 17-year-old Trayvon Martin with in 2012 is up for sale. Yeah, he’s actually doing this.
Zimmerman, who was acquitted of second-degree murder in 2013, has spent the last three years threatening various wives/girlfriends and painting Confederate flags, that is whenever he isn’t involving himself in road rage incidents or getting shot at. Well, with Donald Trump promising to Make America Great Again, the one-time (still?) conservative hero decided the Trumpster needed some help taking down Hillary. And what better way than auctioning off an “American Firearm Icon!”
Ol’ George placed the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm pistol up for auction on GunBroker.com. It is a one-day auction with the bid starting at $5,000 and an unknown reserve price. In the listing, the 32-year-old claimed he was placing this piece of history up for sale in order to stop Hillary Clinton and prevent Black Lives Matter from hursting police officers, among other things. He also accused “B. Hussein Obama” of trying to render the gun inoperable after the trial.
“The firearm is fully functional as the attempts by the Department of Justice on behalf of B. Hussein Obama to render the firearm inoperable were thwarted by my phenomenal Defense Attorney. I recognize the purchaser’s ownership and right to do with the firearm as they wish. The purchaser is guaranteed validity and authenticity of the firearm. On this day, 5/11/2016 exactly one year after the shooting attempt to end my life by BLM sympathizer Matthew Apperson I am proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds will be used to: fight BLM violence against Law Enforcement officers, ensure the demise of Angela Correy’s persecution career and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric. Now is your opportunity to own a piece of American History.”
Below are some of the reactions on Twitter after news spread of the sale:
George Zimmerman is selling the gun he killed an unarmed teen with to the highest bidder, and Karma does a pre-workout stretch.

Sick. What goes through the mind of Juror B37 when she reads updates on George Zimmerman? https://t.co/aeQDXw8BKV

And here I was hoping George Zimmerman was trending because he died. Le sigh.

Odds that George Zimmerman shares a stage with Trump this campaign are very high https://t.co/gFYHeB5Nhl
