Entrepreneur or Just Sick? Man Sells Trayvon Martin Gun Range Targets

An anonymous supporter of George Zimmerman has drawn harsh criticism for selling gun range targets that feature a hooded figure meant to resemble slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

According to CBS News affiliate WKMG, an advertisement for the targets, which has since been removed, stated the seller “supports Zimmerman and believes he is innocent and that he shot a thug.”

The targets, which do not show Martin’s face, feature a hoodie with the target aimed directly at the chest. The hooded individual appears to be clutching an Arizona Ice tea and has a package of Skittles in the pocke—items Martin was carrying the night of his murder.

The seller admitted the main motivation behind the targets was to make money from the controversy. He said he sold out of the targets in two days.
