George Zimmerman, whose killing of unarmed black teenager sparked nationwide protests, has re-listed the gun that he used to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin in 2012 on a separate auction site.
"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," wrote Zimmerman, of the gun.
Zimmerman had previously listed the weapon, a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm, on GunBroker.com, at a starting price of $5,000. He said in the listing that the gun had recently been returned to him by the U.S. Department of Justice and was a "piece of American History."
He wrote that the gun was fully functional despite "attempts by the Department of Justice on behalf of B. Hussein Obama to render the firearm inoperable."
GunBroker.com removed Zimmerman's listing before the auction was able to start, stating on its website: "Mr. Zimmerman never contacted anyone at GunBroker.com prior to or after the listing was created and no one at GunBroker.com has any relationship with Zimmerman… We want no part in the listing on our web site or in any of the publicity it is receiving."
Zimmerman re-listed the firearm Thursday on UnitedGunGroup.com, also for a starting price of $5,000. The listing seemed to be briefly removed overnight before reappearing again.
At time of writing, the auction, which is set to be open for five days, had received over 8,000 bids with the price up to $42.3 million. CNBC was unable to verify, however, how real the bids are; some bidders had listed their names as 'Donald Trump' and 'Racist McShootface.'
