Gary Gilmore has been dead for 29 years, but he's still got the money mojo going. The murderer whose 1977 execution restarted the use of the death penalty in the United States is back in the news, this time because of the gun he used to kill two people. The Associated Press says a bail bondsman, Dennis Stilson, is selling the gun on a "murder collectibles auction site." Minimum bid is $1 million.
You can looksee the gun here, at GilmoreGun. We'll choose to remember Gilmore with the very special Christmas song from a 1976 episode of "Saturday Night Live."
In the meadow, we can build a snowman
One with Gary Gilmore packed inside
We'll say "Are you dead yet?" He'll say "No, man"
But we'll wait out the frostbite till he dies ...
