George Zimmerman is auctioning off the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin back in 2012.

The 32-year-old listed the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun for a single-day auction on GunBroker.com. The starting bid is set at $5,000 and an undisclosed “reserve price” for the winning bidder.

“I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon,” Zimmerman wrote in the item’s description. “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… This is a piece of American History.”

Zimmerman claims that he received multiple offers from museums to purchase the weapon, including the Smithsonian.

According to Zimmerman, the proceeds of the sale will be used to fight “fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against Law Enforcement officers, ensure the demise of [Zimmerman’s prosecuting attorney] Angela Correy’s [sic] persecution career and Hillary Clinton’s anti-firearm rhetoric.”

Zimmerman was acquitted three years ago claiming that he acted in self-defense against the unarmed teenager.
