When considering all of the most terrible, despicable, disgusting people in human history, it is hard to imagine a more repulsive piece of human garbage than George Zimmerman.

If Zimmerman had simply kept his head down after his controversial court case surrounding his murder of teen Trayvon Martin, many people would still believe that he acted out of self defense rather than performing cold, calculated murder.

Instead, Zimmerman went on after his innocent verdict to commit crime after crime, exposing himself as the crazed threat to humanity that he truly is. He assaulted girlfriends, engaged in road rage, and sold rebel flag paintings for fun.

Teen Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman while the man patrolled his neighborhood in some knock-off version of an overly violent rent-a-cop. Evidence went back and forth about who initiated the violence, with Zimmerman claiming that he feared for his life.

Quite a bit of racially-driven controversy was stirred up by the event, with many trying to paint Martin as a “thug” and other racially-coded language. Others defended the teen, saying that he was doing nothing wrong by walking in his Father’s neighborhood wearing a hoodie and on a simple errand to buy some skittles and a soda.

Due to flexible Stand Your Ground laws in Florida, Zimmerman was let off.

Now, Zimmerman has announced that he plans to auction off the gun he used to murder his 17-year-old victim Martin.

Many thought the story was a joke when it first broke on Wednesday evening, but by now it is clear that Zimmerman is dead serious about selling his murder weapon to the highest bidder.

Zimmerman says that the gun is of historical significance and some even suggested that the Smithsonian might be interested in obtaining the gun. On Thursday morning, the Smithsonian’s Twitter account denied this, saying they have never been interested in obtaining the weapon.

The gun is listed for sale online with this description written by Zimmerman himself:

Prospective bidders, I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon. 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 gun is a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm. It has recently been returned to me by the Department of Justice. The pistol currently has the case number written on it in silver permanent marker. Many have expressed interest in owning and displaying the firearm including The Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. This is a piece of American History. It has been featured in several publications and in current University text books. Offers to purchase the Firearm have been received; however, the offers were to use the gun in a fashion I did not feel comfortable with. 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. Good Luck. Your friend, George M. Zimmerman ~Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum~

 

So far, no one has met the reserve price of $5,000 set by Zimmerman for the weapon. That this listing is allowed to remain on the gun sale website is disgusting.


Update 11:25 ET: It appears that the listing for Zimmerman’s murder weapon has been taken down.
