    Most all news agencies are reporting that George Zimmerman is going to auction off the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin. What is sickening is his explanation. The following are excerpts from the Guardian:

    "Zimmerman listed “the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin” on GunBroker.com on Thursday, with bidding scheduled to begin at 11am EDT on Thursday.

    "He wrote in the item description that it had recently been returned to him by the Department of Justice and was fully functional." Zimmerman writes further:

    “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. It has been featured in several publications and in current university text books. Offers to purchase the firearm have been received; however, the offers were to use the gun in a fashion I did not feel comfortable with.”

    "Zimmerman wrote that he was “proud to announce” that a portion of the proceeds raised would be used to “fight BLM [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers” as well as ending the career of Angela Corey, his prosecutor – “and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric”."

    He signed off “your friend, George M. Zimmerman” and “Si vis pacem, para bellum” – the Latin adage, “If you want peace, prepare for war”.

    We have discussed gun regulations and the Second Amendment many times in this website, so we don't need to go there. I wanted to make this thread more about the mentality of the gun culture (or maybe I should say a certain gun cult subset of our society to separate these people from the many responsible gun owners). It is the minds of people who think like Zimmerman that catch my attention...the militias for one.

    Thoughts?

    Thoughts? None. I've said enough about our antique rules; even Moses knew better.

    My thoughts are that this asshole is a monster and he deserves a special place in the hell I don't believe in.

    It's beyond my comprehension how he portrays himself as the victim in his description of the auction. How in the world has he convinced himself that hunting down a child and killing him in cold blood makes him the victim?

    I hope he sells it and then find some law he violated and lock him up.

    Or, perhaps he will slip and shoot himself in the eye.
