Bidding in an online auction for the gun that George Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin topped $65 million Friday morning, though it was unclear if the bids were serious.
The United Gun Group website began hosting the auction after another website, GunBroker.com, halted bidding.
United Gun Group said in a statement Thursday night that it pulled Zimmerman's listing because the auction is not in the organization's best interest.
"Our mission is to esteem the 2nd amendment and provide a safe and secure platform for firearms enthusiasts and law-abiding citizens; our association with Mr. Zimmerman does not help us achieve that objective," the organization wrote.
However, the auction was back up-and-running on the company's website early Friday.
