The more I hear about this guy the more a think he may have actually been guilty. He shows no respect to the family of the man he shot. Like the family or not you can still show some respect.

It is not about respect. The man seems to have been defending his life (and would seem rightfully so as he was found not guilty) and his life basically ruined both personally and financially by having been arrested and fought to prove himself innocent.

(I am NOT saying I like the guy) BUT he seems to have committed no crime but was labelled everything in the world. Try finding a job after that kind of media attention. Personally I hope he does well in the sale. He did not ask to be attacked and to have to defend himself (also don't think I agree with all his actions BUT the evidence seemed to be consistent with his injuries and details of the incident)


The man deserves to be able to support himself and get on with his life. My bet would be finding a job is very difficult for him..

Guy was proven not guilty. That's a fact.

He was found innocent by jury, his common sense & compassion are lacking. While I have not ever had to take another's life in self defense, i assume it would not be pleasant experience I would want to bask in. I have had an Alabama Pistol Permit for 33 years, and believe I have what it takes to defend my life; however, I hope to never have to test this resolve. I have no issue in him selling the gun, but in my opinion the way he is marketing it is classless.

Thank you for the correction.

As far as OJ goes, didn't agree with it but excepted it and moved on.

Wasn't there but if some punk attacked me and I had to defend myself and then the punk's family attacked me in the press and in court I might not have much respect for them or any concern about their feelings. What goes around comes around.

Zimmerman is a tool but none of us were there and he was found not guilty. It's his gun and if someone is stupid enough to buy it it's his right to sell it. PC or not, he's free to do what's legal.

That gun was part of an incident that took over the national media for months. I'm not sure I would go as far as to call it historical but it has some significance and is probably quite valuable to somebody. As far as Zimmerman, he is a tragic figure. He was found not guilty and yet his life has still become a downward spiral. Thousands of people literally hate him. I am sure he doesn't feel safe around African Americans. Nobody I know would want to employee that guy for fear of backlash towards their business. He probably needs the money and I hope the gun sells at a high price. Maybe he could use the money to move someplace where he can start his life over.

Since everyone who wasn't there loves to speculate, I'll play along;

One can assume Zimmerman "did not ask to be attacked and to have to defend himself."

One can also assume if he had done what he was told by the 911 dispatcher, there would have been no "attack" and no need for self defense.

Dispatcher - “Are you following him?”

Zimmerman - “Yeah,”

Dispatcher - “We don’t need you to do that.”
