DESPICABLE

Bidding on Zimmerman’s Gun Up to $65M

George Zimmerman’s online auction to sell the pistol he used to fatally shoot Trayvon Martin had reached $65,000,000 on Friday morning. The bids were switched from GunBroker.com, which eventually said it wanted “no part in the listing on our website or in any of the publicity it is receiving,” to United Gun Group. The new location deems itself a “social marketplace for the firearms community.” Bidding on the 9mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol started at $5,000. Doubts have been expressed about the veracity of the bids that sent the item skyrocketing into the millions—several bids were placed by users named "Tamir Rice" and "Racist McShootface."
