George Zimmerman is reportedly auctioning off the pistol he used to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin, has learned.

In the years since his 2013 acquittal in the Martin case, Zimmerman has become a cult hero for racist fanatics.

Now, he's referring to the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm gun as "a piece of American history,"listing it on for a single-day auction. The opening bid is set at $5,000.

The shamed neighborhood watch coordinator also included a detailed history of the weapon in its description.

"I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon,"he wrote. "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.”

Zimmerman claims that he plans to use the auction money to oppose Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, and fight "violence against Law Enforcement officers,"which he believes started with the Black Lives Matter movement.
