Former President Donald Trump could find himself in more legal trouble after a priceless gun was reportedly auctioned off from his Mar-a-Lago collection, possibly violating the conditions of his federal indictment.
During a charity event at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home last weekend, a gun described as a “one of a kind Trump Glock from the 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump” was sold at the auction, according to pictures and videos obtained by Meidas Touch News. That could land Trump in further legal trouble as federal law prohibits individuals who are under federal indictment from buying or selling firearms.
Videos obtained by the outlet show the bidding began at $10,000, although it’s not entirely clear how much the firearm was sold for. However, the individual who purchased the gun could also find themselves in trouble for purchasing the gun from Trump when his federal indictments are so publicly known.
Both Trump and the purchaser could face prison time for the auctioning, according to federal gun prohibitions laid out in the Gun Control Act enforced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
Trump recently landed himself in trouble with that law after his campaign posted a photo of the former president holding a gun at Palmetto State Armory in South Carolina earlier this year with the caption, “President Trump purchases a @GLOCKInc in South Carolina!” The campaign later deleted the post, clarifying that Trump did not purchase the firearm but merely “indicated that he wanted one.”
