Before George Zimmerman was able to sell the gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin, the listing was yanked off the firearms auction site.
The one-day auction of Zimmerman’s Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun was over before it even started. Seconds before the 11 a.m. auction of the gun that was used to shoot and kill Trayvon Marton, the listing disappeared from GunBroker.com.
The auction had a starting bid of $5,000, but it looks as for right now that Zimmerman will not be able to profit off a murder weapon.
It appears that Zimmerman blatantly lied in the description of the gun where he stated that the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. “expressed interest in owning and displaying the firearm.” The Smithsonian released a statement on Thursday morning denying ever wanting to purchase the gun.
If you were a callous cretin planning on purchasing the firearm, don’t fret and keep your chin up. I am sure in some dark, sinister corner of the internet you can purchase used German Zyklon B canisters or a dull butchers knife used by ISIS.
