The wife of Oregon refuge occupier Jon Ritzheimer is using an online auction site to sell a firearm her husband brought to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, hoping to use the proceeds to cover restitution he and other co-defendants owe for damage to the wildlife sanctuary.
The UnitedGunGroup.com site lists “Jon Ritzheimer’s Oregon Refuge Standoff Sig P238” as a gun Ritzheimer wore during the armed takeover of the federal bird refuge in early 2016.
It is the same website used briefly a year ago by George Zimmerman, who tried to turn a profit on the gun he used to kill Florida teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012. Zimmerman, 32, part of a neighborhood watch, was found not guilty in the February 2012 killing of the unarmed 17-year-old African American after saying he acted in self-defense.
The Sig handgun was one of only two firearms not confiscated by the FBI from Ritzheimer, who carried it “while watching the back of Robert LaVoy Finicum during many press conferences,” the website says.
The gun has been mounted inside a clear collector’s case, with a signed copy of the U.S. Constitution and a notarized “certificate of authenticity.” It has Finicum’s ranch brand laser etched on its top and side, the site says. Finicum was the occupation spokesman who was killed by police after he sped off from a police stop on Jan. 26, 2016, swerved into a snowbank at a police roadblock and emerged from his truck. Police said he was shot when he reached at least twice into his jacket, where he had a loaded handgun.
Ritzheimer was sentenced last week to a year and a day in prison plus another 12 months in a residential re-entry center after he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to impede federal employees from carrying out their work at the refuge through intimidation, threats or force. Ritzheimer, convicted of a felony, can’t possess or use any firearms.
The sale of the gun would help pay off “all the restitution” for everyone convicted in the refuge occupation, with any money left over to go to Finicum’s family, the site says. The total amount is $98,000 among 15 defendants. Ritzheimer’s share is $10,000.
Each person convicted must disclose all assets to the government in a financial disclosure statement 14 days from their sentencing dates.

This is the Sig P238 Scorpion Micro-Compact that Jon Ritzheimer wore during the takeover of the Malheur Nation Wildlife Refuge in 2016.
There are only two guns that were actually used during the initial takeover, that made it out and did not get confiscated by the FBI. This is one of them. This gun was used in its intended fashion that is outlined in the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Jon Ritzheimer also carried this gun while watching the back of Robert LaVoy Finicum during many press conferences. It has been memorialized to LaVoy Finicum and has been laser etched on top with the famous Lavoy Finicum quote , “It Matters How You Stand.” It also has the Finicum Ranch Brand laser etched on top and on the side, which says “In Loving Memory of LaVoy Finicum.” It has been mounted inside this collector’s case along with a signed copy of the U.S. Constitution. This is an amazing piece of history that was used to take part in what is now known as one of the most Patriotic Acts of Civil Defiance since the Boston Tea Party.
The money from this gun will go towards paying off all the restitution for everyone involved in the Oregon Takeover of 2016. The remainder will go to the Finicum Family to help fund their fight in getting justice for LaVoy.
