    I was reading and just hoping this was a satirical piece. This man has obviously got some mental issues.

    The latest I've read is the gun was withdrawn from the auction.

    Yep, Gunbroker.com pulled the listing.

    Zimmermann gives firearms owners a bad name.

    Shows us all what a stellar citizen he is. (Sarcasm )

    That's like OJ selling the knife he used to turn Nicole into a pez dispenser.

    I doubt if you are qualified to diagnose the mental state of another human ... there is still some truth in what you say!

    Au contraire mon frere. I deduced long ago that you are a couple of dilithium crystals short of a warpcore.[​IMG]

    For selling a gun? That's certainly done quite often.

    I think the Yiddish word is chutzpah. Reminds me of a Paul Harvey account from many years ago. A man imprisoned in one of the New England states for murdering his parents managed for years to collect orphan benefits.

    No. For advertising that you're selling the gun with which you murdered someone.

    He can't leave well enough alone. He's gonna keep poking that tiger and end up dead.

    He was acquitted.

    I wonder if he is selling because he has legal bills to pay.

    Zimmerman didn't murder anyone. He was getting beaten by a thug for protecting his neighbors' property, and he defended himself. He was vilified for political purposes, and if this is his way to stick it to you . . . so be it. I hope some auction company grows a pair, and I hope the gun goes for over a 100 million.

    Protecting his neighbors property. LOL. Zimmerman confronted Trayvon ran his mouth, got his butt kicked and panicked. There are no heroes in this story and your good Samaritan George has done nothing but run afoul of the law ever since. His charges are a lot worse than anything Trayvon ever did.

    Funny how Trayvon is the thug but the guy with multiple domestic assault charges, restraining orders is the guy you are rooting for.

    I guess after abusing women he was surprised that fighting a man was going to be harder?

    You should find better role models.

    I'm not surprised at the opinions of the more liberal and pseudoconservatives of the board. You have a large bed, ITL.

    That does not mean he is not guilty of murder.I know a fellow who was definitely guilty of 2nd degree murder. However because of the police trampling his Marinda Rights he waked free. The judge was irate, but had no choice under current law. Yes, I personally know him.

    Fair point, but a jury still acquitted him. I am not familiar with all of the evidence or all of the details of the Florida laws that apply, but evidently they considered his actions justified.
