George Zimmerman says he is auctioning off the gun he used to kill Miami teen Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman made the announcement on Wednesday night during a newscast on Orlando’s WOFL television.
The online auction starts Thursday. The opening bid is set at $5,000.
Zimmerman was asked for his reaction to people who feel the sale is in bad taste. He said those who don’t approve wouldn’t be bidding, so he doesn’t care what they think.
Zimmerman refers to the gun as a piece of "American history."
He is not wrong there, American history is riddled with senseless gun deaths.
The original auction house bailed on Zimmerman after receiving some hate mail, but another one quickly volunteered to take its place.
At this point it seems that George Zimmerman is working his hardest to become the most hated man in the country.
Good news George, I think you made it
