Seller of Trayvon Martin Gun Range Targets Says They Sold Out in Two Days


"My main motivation was to make money off the controversy," said the seller of a gun range target designed to resemble murdered Florida teen Trayvon Martin in an email to Local 6 reporter Mike DeForest.

The seller remains unidentified despite the correspondence.

The Orlando-based news station says it spotted an ad for the targets — since removed — on a "popular firearms auction website." They feature a black hoodie similar to the one worn by Martin on the night he was shot by self-appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, along with a drawing of a Skittles bag and a can of iced tea.

The seller is reportedly a supporter of Zimmerman who believes "he is innocent and that he shot a thug."

Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, rejected the support, calling the targets "the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility." He expressed concern that "this type of hatred" is "going to make it more difficult to try this case."

According to the seller, others are much more keen on the item. Though they would not say how many $8 ten-packs were produced, they claim the response has been "overwhelming," and the targets "sold out in 2 days."

Speaking of Trayvon Martin:

From the Riverside-Brookfield Illinois Landmark Newspaper
New use for sewer pipe


A resident of the 3100 block of Grand Boulevard, which is under construction, came out of his home about 9 a.m. on May 21 and found that a large section of concrete sewer pipe had been used as a canvas for the following message:

'Free George Zimmerman, F--- Trayvon" the message read, referring to the Florida case involving a neighborhood watch captain who allegedly shot and killed an unarmed teenager in February.

Zimmerman, who was not initially charged, now faces second-degree murder charges. The person who spray-painted the message apparently was referencing the racial overtones of the Trayvon Martin case, scrawling 'The knee grows did it" on another section of pipe lying in the street.

Charges were Trumped up against Zimmerman, and should have been dropped as soon as all the facts were known and physical evidence and Toxicology reports in. Pandering Communist main-Stream News Media created this firestorm and is the Ultimate Evil in this Country, along with the current Regime.

Go to The Conservative Tree House website and read about the drugs that Trayvon was using. Scroll down a bit because it was on a few days ago. Low level DXM and weed. They mix Arizona Watermelon drink, skittles, and cough medicine for a cheap high. What was Trayvon carrying when he attacked Zimmerman? Skittles and Arizona Watermelon or Sprite (a substitute). On Trayvons facebook page he complains that he is having a hard time getting prescription codeine.

Capitalism at it's finest!

Skittles is also launching a new ad blitz with the waggish twist on it's famous slogan:

"Skittles: Taste the Trayvon! BANG!"
