George Zimmerman to Get Back Gun That Killed Trayvon Martin

Posted on Jul 14, 2013

Now that he’s been found not guilty on all charges related to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman will be given the firearm back that he used to gun down the unarmed Florida teen, Think Progress Editor-in-Chief Judd Legum noted after the verdict was read Saturday night.

And according to Zimmerman defense attorney Mark O’Mara, his client has “even more reason” to arm himself now because of how many people are angry over his acquittal. 

“Yes. [There’s] even more reason now, isn’t there?” O’Mara said during an interview with ABC News on Sunday when asked whether Zimmerman was intending to carry a weapon again. “There are a lot of people out there who actually hate him, though they shouldn’t.”

O’Mara also recommended that Zimmerman get out of Florida. “If I was him I would go somewhere else,” he said. “I don’t think he can work. I don’t think anyone can hire him. … George is a pariah.”
