George Zimmerman Brushes Off Death Threats After Decision to Auction Gun That Killed Trayvon Martin: ‘I Can Do What I Like’

In an interview Wednesday with Florida’s Fox News affiliate WOGX, George Zimmerman — the man responsible for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012 — announced that he will auction off the weapon he used to murder the teen.

The 32-year-old told reporters via phone that the 9mm pistol will be available in an online auction. He also said that portion of the proceeds will be used to fight the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I recently received it back from the Department of Justice. They took it after my trial, after I was exonerated,” he said.

Zimmerman continues to be confident about his decision even though there will be immediate backlash.

“What I’ve decided to do is not cower,” he said. “I’m a free American. I can do what I like with my possessions.”

This is the auction site’s description of the weapon:

“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 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.”
