Terrorrist and murderer George Zimmerman has stooped to a new low. He is auctioning off the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin in 2012.

The NY Daily News is reporting that George Zimmerman is auctioning off the gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman posted the gun and his opening bid of $5,000 on Gunbroker.com.

Per NYDN:

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.

He also said a portion of the proceeds will go to help fight Black Lives Matter “violence against law enforcement officers” and to end “Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric.”

In his online post, Zimmerman wrote:

“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 … 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.”

The auction begins on Thursday, May 12 at 11 a.m.
