George Zimmerman is auctioning off the gun he says he used to shoot and kill 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012, Mediaite reported on Wednesday.
â€œIâ€™m a free American,â€ Zimmerman said of his decision. â€œI can do what I like with my possessions.â€
The online auction is set to begin on Thursday morning, a year to the day after he wasÂ injured in a dispute with Matthew Apperson, who Zimmerman described as being a Black Lives Matter â€œsympathizer.â€
â€œI 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 Correyâ€™s persecution career and Hillary Clintonâ€™s anti-firearm rhetoric,â€ GeorgeÂ wrote on the auction website. â€œNow is your opportunity to own a piece of American History.â€
He also described the gun as being operable, â€œattempts by the Department of Justice on behalf of B. Hussein Obama.â€
HeÂ was acquitted of second-degree murder charges in the death of Martin in July 2013.
