George Zimmerman Auctioning Gun Used to Kill Trayvon Martin

George Zimmer-man is selling the pistol he used to shoot and kill 17-year-old Trayvon Martin nearly four years ago. The infamous 32-year-old Florida man listed the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun up for a single-day auction on, with a starting bid set at $5,000 and an undisclosed β€œreserve price” the winning bidder must meet. Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Martin after an intense trial in which the defendant claimed he acted in self-defense to fend off the unarmed teenager. β€œI am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon,” Zimmerman wrote in the item’s description. β€œThe 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… This is a piece of American History.” Proceeds from the sale, Zimmerman wrote, will be used to β€œfight [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers, ensure the demise of [Zimmerman’s prosecuting attorney] Angela Correy’s [sic] persecution career and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric.” Zimmerman punctuated the listing with the Latin phrase β€œSi vis pacem, para bellum,” meaning, β€œIf you want peace, prepare for war.”
