KKK gear for sale on gun site where Zimmerman tried to auction gun used to kill Trayvon Martin
A website that bills itself as the world’s biggest gun auction market has been caught selling Nazi and Ku Klux Klan paraphernalia.
NBC 4 New York’s I-Team has discovered that online firearms retailer GunBroker.com regularly sells clothing and merchandise designed to appeal to white supremacists, including Klan robes and Nazi flags.
GunBroker.com drew headlines earlier this year when George Zimmerman tried to use it to auction off the gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin, although the website quickly decided to kill off that particular auction after getting a massive public relations blowback.
The report notes that KKK and Nazi merchandise have been banned from both Amazon and eBay, and GunBroker.com representatives declined to respond to NBC 4 New York’s questions about why it was okay with letting its users selling such items.
Gail Barouh, the head of hate-crime tracking group BiasHelp, tells NBC 4 New York that she is “outraged, but I’m not surprised” to see GunBroker.com selling white supremacist gear, since “I’m seeing this increase in the KKK everywhere that I look.”
