George Zimmerman is auctioning the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin. The post lists the weapon purportedly used to kill Martin at a starting bid of $5,000. "I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American firearm icon," the post says. "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." The post brags about the gun's popularity, describing it as a "piece of American history" in which museums have expressed interest.
sort by best latest
No one ever said he was a smart guy.
He must have thought the highest bidder would be the KKK. !!
I'm happy to see that the first auction site on which he posted the gun has rejected the listing. A second site also declined to list it today.
I hear another site was approached and they are refusing to list it
Just found out the gun sale has been pulled. So at least we have some good news today.
He must have read my answer lol
It's good that he pulled it....but kind of kills my question.
No, Ralph. UR question is fine. Proof he did post the ad & how some of the public reacted. I'd say he's going to take a lot of flack (hopefully) Did no one ever teach that guy anything? No brains, no morals, no sense. I think that spells LOSER.
I heard on the radio this morning the gun sold for $1,000,000 dollars! If so I wonder if whoever bought it will have it insured for $2,000,000 before it disappears. George won't be gettin much sleep when that happens :-o
The bidding appears to have been hijacked - get this, a $65 million dollar bid is out there now. Ironically Gunbroker's websites were overwhelmed with curios lookers yesterday
If so he is doubly stupid, done right he could have made more than that and without drawing negative attention. Whoever bought it from him better be sure to have it authenticated!
I think if this guy has trouble finding work&is harassed it likely has nothing to do with a"whiteguybad"narrative but everything to do with the fact he is a total loser in every respect.Just read his antics sinceTravon's death.&nowagunsale?
T.W. Not a single eye or ear "witness" to any attack, much less "violent" Trayvon's goal was to get to his Dad's. Y was GZ out of his truck? This is re: This crime, not blk on blk. What's ur game? a little racism? Just say so.
Both parties were losers. Zimmerman may have done what he needed to do, but he does have a few screws loose.
Needs the money? Fine. Sell Ur damned gun. A psycho shouldn't have a gun anyway. You proved that. Just don't advertise it like it's an effing TROPHY! Dirt bag!
The writer of that open letter was Paula, otherwise known as Effer and boy did she get it right.
Yes, Thanks Tsad. I read a few of her hubs. She's a damned good writer! Very prolific, clear & matter-of-fact. I recall I got the impression she may be an Attorney or just very "logical" & realistic. I hope she doesn't mind us discussing her
Wow, never thought of it that way. You may have a good point. We will be waiting to see.
"never thought of it that way?" Of course not, it takes years of studying the criminal liberal mind (like the Clintons or Obama) to learn how to think like they do.
Tsad, I've been studying the "criminal liberal mind", the criminal conservative mind, and the criminal independent mind as a paralegal and a legal editor for 28 years. Your bias slip is showing.
Touche,MizB,LOL,then I suppose when you said"I never thought of it that way."you just weren't using that study?& then when you said"You may have a good point."it just kicked in.Oh well,the gun's withdrawn,guess we won't be waiting to see.
Very ironic...your prediction. Killed by the same gun he used to kill Martin. Karma!
In context=" I am honored and humbled to announce the sale.. the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin on 2/26/2012" That sounds pretty proud to me - nice trick taking words out of context.
Thanks for the back up Tsad - Metta, there are many stories on the web about this and some used the word "proud"
Metta, Not that you may be "grasping at straws" or reacting in desperation or anything of that nature, right???!! Really??
