Yesterday, after George Zimmerman’s initial attempt to auction off the weapon he used to kill Trayvon Martin was foiled, a second auction site took up the cause.

On Tuesday, a Florida judge decided that the case against Matthew Apperson, who allegedly tried to kill George Zimmerman in a roadway shooting this May, will go to trial. According to Reuters, Zimmerman testified today that he saw Apperson and the barrel of a gun and then heard “a bang and a ringing in my ears.”
