Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today U.S. Representative Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus leadership and House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement in response to the effort by the adult killer of Trayvon Martin to auction off the gun used to take the 17-year-old unarmed boy’s life:

“Trayvon Martin’s cold-blooded killer should be in prison. Instead, he is trying to profit from the stunning miscarriage of justice that occurred three years ago in a Florida courtroom. It should shock the conscience of every decent American that this man is peddling his murder weapon for sale. America must reject this merchant of death once and for all.”
