George Zimmerman is determined to sell the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin. And Martin's family is furious!

The police academy reject had placed the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm gun on GunBroker.com for a single-day auction, with the opening bid set at $5,000. After backlash, the site took it down, but it was subsequently relisted on unitedgungroup.com. A rep for the site said they would not take it down.

Meanwhile, Martin's family is disgusted by the 32-year-old killer's actions.

"It's not surprising. He's just craving attention," Martin's uncle exclusively told Radar. "It's sickening to even think about it and the type of person who would do something like that all for the name of a dollar."

Zimmerman was arrested and charged with Martin's murder in 2012, but was found not guilty by a jury of his peers.

Subsequent years have seen a series of other disturbing incidents involving the Florida native.

Last October, he retweeted a photograph of Martin's dead body. After public outrage, he claimed he did not realize there was a photo attached to the tweet.

Not long after, his account was suspended when he posted graphic photos of an ex and accused her of having sex with a "dirty Muslim."

In addition, he was pulled over for speeding in 2012, and cops found a gun on him.

In 2013, his girlfriend claimed he pointed a shotgun at her, and he was charged with felony aggravated assault. That case was dropped, but two years later he was charged with domestic aggravated assault over a fight with a girlfriend yet again. That case was dropped as well.
