The Florida neighborhood watchman who fatally shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin in 2012 is putting the killer handgun up for auction — and hoping to fetch at least $5,000.
“I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon,” Zimmerman wrote in his online description of the weapon. The perverted auction opens for bids at 11 a.m. Thursday.
“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 … 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,” Zimmerman wrote.
The 32-year-old Zimmerman — who left the world gasping when he was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the case in 2013 — said he recently got the .9mm-handgun back from the Department of Justice, which kept it after his trial.
The Kel-Tec PF-9 is displayed on online auction site Gunbroker.com, with a picture of a court officer holding up the gun at his murder trial.
Zimmerman tagged the item with the Latin phrase, “Si Vis Pace Para Bellum,” which means “If you want peace, prepare for war.”
He also said a portion of the proceeds will go to fight Black Lives Matter “violence against law enforcement officers” and to end “Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric.”
