    Strange how McCorkle is consistently about 60 votes up on Oreface. I wonder if someone's programmed a bot to keep voting 4 him every time Sweet O. gets actor.

    That's a theory I could get behind. McCorkle always seems to get a surge anytime things get close.

    Fake buyers like 'Racist McShootFace' hijack Trayvon Martin gun sale


    Bidding in an online auction 4 the pistol George Zimmerman used to shoot and kill unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012 topped a total of $65 million on Friday, though the amount appeared to be inflated by fake buyers with names such as "Racist McShootFace."

    Zimmerman drew wide criticism on Thursday after offering to sell the Kel-Tec PF9 9mm handgun, which the former neighborhood watch volunteer described in the auction listing as "an American Firearm Icon."

    Zimmerman said the weapon was used to defend his life and "end the brutal attack" from Martin. Martin's family has said the 17-year-old was simply walking home after buying a drink and candy from a local store when he had his fatal encounter with Zimmerman.


    Martin's killing near Orlando, Florida, sparked nationwide civil rights protests and debate over "stand your ground" laws, which let people use deadly force without a duty to retreat if they R in fear of being harmed. Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the case.

    By lunchtime on Friday, bidders in the auction on the United Gun Group's website included "shaniqua bonifa" and "Tamir Rice," the same name as the 12-year-old black boy shot dead by a white police officer in Cleveland in 2014.

    The auction is scheduled to end on Wednesday. USA Today reported that the bid by "Racist McShootFace" was later deleted.

    The auction began on Thursday after the first site where Zimmerman attempted to sell the gun rejected the listing. That site, GunBroker.com, said in a statement that it wanted no part in the auction or the attendant publicity.



    'LETTER OF THE LAW'

    A listing 4 the gun then appeared on UnitedGunGroup.com, with a starting price of $5,000. By midday on Friday it had received more than 1,000 bids.

    United Gun Group said in a statement that as long as Zimmerman was obeying "the letter of the law," the sale of his personal firearm would be allowed on the site.

    "While not always popular, this is where we stand. There R principles this nation was founded on, and our goal is to do our part to defend liberty," United Gun Group said.

    "We know that many lives have been forever impacted by the incident February 26, 2012, and we're truly sorry to the Martin family 4 their loss. We will have no further comment on the matter."

    The website calls itself a "free social network and marketplace that embraces the 2nd amendment and lawful discussion." The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." It is contained in the Bill of Rights.

    In the auction listing, Zimmerman said he would use money from the sale to counter violence against law enforcement officers by Black Lives Matter, a movement that grew out of Martin's shooting. Proceeds would also go toward fighting Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton's "anti-firearm rhetoric," Zimmerman said.

    According to the listing, the pistol is marked with the number from the Martin case in silver ink and the listing included multiple photographs of the weapon being displayed in court during Zimmerman's trial.

    The listing closed with a Latin phrase, "Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum," meaning "if U wish peace, prepare 4 war."

    A lawyer 4 Martin's family called the sale offensive but said it would not distract the family from their work advocating against gun violence.

    Zimmerman has previously sold on eBay a painting depicting the American flag, and a painting he did of a Confederate flag to raise money 4 a Florida gunshop owner who declared his store a Muslim-free zone.

    I don't want to jump to conclusions but I don't know if Fender knows how to copy and paste links.

    Cheers SJWs, all you had to do was listen to some regular, working class people and not sit preaching about meaningless issues from your ivory fucking tower while the trodden poor rose up and created a monster.

    0% surprised that waveswithin would use this term unironically at some point before the board bites the dust.
