George Zimmerman to Get His Gun Back
abc ^ | SANFORD, Fla. July 14, 2013 | MATT GUTMAN and SENI TIENABESO

Posted on 07/14/2013 2:02:17 PM PDT by Red Steel

George Zimmerman will get his gun back now that he has been cleared of murder and his lawyer said today that Zimmerman needs the weapon "even more" than before.

Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara also practically dared the family of Trayvon Martin to file a widely expected civil suit against him, but said that Zimmerman might be filing lawsuits of his own.

O'Mara, in an exclusive interview with ABC News, suggested that Zimmerman has no regrets about carrying a gun on Feb. 26, 2012, the night he killed Martin, a teenager.

...

He said that Zimmerman intends to rearm himself. When asked if he would carry a gun, O'Mara said, 'Yes. [There's] even more reason now, isn't there? There are a lot of people out there who actually hate him, though they shouldn't."

The former neighborhood watch captain wears a protective vest when he goes out in public, although he didn't wear it to court, O'Mara said.

"George Gets His Gun Back"

That has a great ring to it as the title of a country song, doesn't it?

I would be interested in seeing him get his passport back so he can get OUT of here as soon as possible.

The racial entrepreneurs will huff and puff for a few more days, then never speak of Trayvon again.

I hope George sues the life out of NBC.

Good luck with that.

I once had a pistol confiscated by law enforcement for reasons entirely unrelated to me or my actions.

It took two years and a lawsuit to get it back and that happened only 2 days before they were going to chop it up.

I’ve been posting on all the “justice for trayvon” sites and telling them that if they want to ‘honor’ trayvon that they should put on a hoodie and walk around through the backyards of all their neighbors in the dark..

And don’t take no disrespec’ if someone finds that to be suspicious behavior

I suggest DKX armor and it is light with good reviews :-)

Hopefully it is still in working condition. It isn’t unheard of for such weapons to be damaged with permanent marker writing all over them, paint, damage to the weapon that requires hundreds of dollars to deal with while police “test” and retain them.

My buddy’s Glock came back that way from his court case.

I think he should get another one for backup.

We should take up a collection to get him a tricked out ultimate carry sidearm and an ultralight weight level 3A vest. I think he needs a Glock 19 with tritium night sites and maybe a few decent holsters that would allow him to carry left side, right side, small of back, and under shoulder, etc. It would be cool to get gim some serious tactical training too. I want GZ to live long and prosper in America.

Yellow journalism

“...the night he killed Martin, a teenager.”

We had a saying in Vietnam. “A 6 year old kid with a frag will kill you just as dead as an NVA Colonel.”

A full disclosure statement by ABC would read:

“...the night Zimmerman, a flabby, 5’ 8”, 180 lb 29 year old killed Martin, a 6’ 2”, 170 lb. 17 year old high school football player who had already broken Zimmerman’s nose and was continuing to pound Zimmerman’s head against the concrete sidewalk.”

It’d be pretty sweet if a local gun shop donated a couple of ARs, some high quality handguns and loads of ammo to the Zimmerman family.

If he’d needed a second shot, he was SOL. Of course, it probably jammed from being limp wristed firing from that awkward position.

Kel Tecs are OK, but hardly a first tier handgun.

George, I recommend that you upgrade that pansy-a$$ed .380 to a .45.

To Hades with ABC news and Stephy. Initially, the page with that story loads with a nice picture of MO’M looking resolute and infuriated. Then the picture rolls into a video from the show that is 2m of Tavis Smiley blathering racial hatred. Yes, Tavis, black men are getting killed daily, and “in aggregate” (to use one of your terms), BLACK MEN ARE DOING IT! So what are you doing about THAT!?

“George Gets His Gun Back”

That has a great ring to it as the title of a country song, doesn’t it?

LOL, I recall the rap tune “who took the dog out”. It’d be fun to have a crowd replace those words and sing in unison, George gets his gun back” beat beat beat, “George gets his gun back”

My thoughts exactly.

In the first place, if I had to kill somebody in self defense, I would not want to keep the firearm (but that's me).

In the second place, that gun is a piece of history. If he were to auction it off, the Justice for Trayvon crowd would freak out and pool their money together to get it. He could squeeze them for plenty.

No need for a collection - he should actually auction it off. Win-Win - he'll get more than enough money to buy himself a nice arsenal PLUS all the Lib's heads will explode as they p*ss themselves indignant with outrage.
