George Zimmerman finally sold the gun he killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin with, after several failed attempts and several fake online bidders. The gun was put in a private auction which had only seven verified bidders and it reportedly sold for $120,000. The person who bought the firearm has not yet been identified.
The United Gun Group auction site put the gun back on sale after 2 failed attempts by their site to sell the gun but added a private email verification process to filter people trying to shut down the sale.
In a blog post, Zimmerman wrote:
“Fellow Patriots, First and foremost, I would like to thank and give the glory to God for a successful auction that has raised funds for several worthy causes.
‘I would like to thank Todd Underwood and UnitedGunGroup.com for their moral fortitude in hosting my firearm auction. I would also like to thank all members of UnitedGunGroup for their support and words of encouragement.
‘At this time, the auction with United Gun Group is closed. The process of notifying the winning bidder will begin immediately. The winning bidder will ultimately decide if they want their information to be maintained in confidentiality.’
