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.

Honor Trayvon? Honor him for what? Don’t that piss you off?

I like your suggestion.

There are lots of good gunsmiths in Florida who might be willing to get it back in working order for a very small fee. I know of one (although I can’t vouch for the cost).

Ha, he didn't need another curfew waiver from the judge. He got one from the jury instead.

The state of Floriduh should give him a lifetime supply of ammo and a lifetime membership at a top notch shooting range. For starters.

I recall reading some time ago (long, long, long time) about a fellow doing point blank tests into dead animals to test ammo.

The surprise was how many times the weapon was disabled by pieces from the animal - wouldn't go back into battery.

Moral of his research - if you're using an auto, don't stick the muzzle up against your target or you might not get a second shot (should you need it).

Love to take up a collection for a new .40 and a couple of years worth of ammo.

He could donate the 9mm to that black lady that was working for his defense team as an intern. She might need it.

KelTec has an outstanding lifetime warranty.

They would make it like new no questions asked.

(And they’re located in Florida.)

Somebody needs to tell Mr. O'Mara that you don't go supplying details like that to a potential assailant.

File a suit against the Martins, yes. Win it, highly unlikely.

The reason is that he would have to show that the Martins harmed him. I know some will think of slander but I have not seen any comments by the Martins (other organizations not withstanding) that would rise to meet the requirement of slander.

IOW, I believe the lawyer has kept them on a short leash for a reason.

My thought is that Mr. Zimmerman will soon be able to afford guards and a nice private island. NBC may soon be NetworkZ, and his suit against NBC is hardly the only one he can file.

Given the records of Bammy’s Community Response Service, a suit against all including Holder and Bammy could be filed because it was a conspiracy to deprive Mr. Zimmerman of his Constitution based rights under cover of law and office.

That lil’ law has nice things for its convicted, like very long sentences.

Hey, if some punk tries to bash his head into the sidewalk again, he has every right to do what he did again.

HILARIOUS that so many of the whiners, who don’t listen to the facts, now are angry at the verdict.....

they LOST. and can’t handle it.

Imagine how crazed they’re gonna be if America ever wakes up and turns on their left wingnut political “leaders”.

Zimmerman should auction the gun off and use the proceeds to get the heck out of the USA befre Eric Holder trumps up some more bogus charges against him.

One way or another the powerful blacks in this country are going to put him through continuous legal torture until they finally get him convicted of something.

They won’t shut up until he gets life in the pen or sentenced to death.

Unless the Black Panthers get to him and his family first.

“I hope George sues the life out of NBC”

I rejoice that Mr. Zimmerman was found innocent, and I agree that he has a very good opportunity to sue the pants off NBC!

How about $100 million or whatever the network is worth after taxes?

I just love it when the dumb oxen of the Left get the much deserved whip :-)

Yes. Kel-Tec has some good and creative engineers, but their designs are not proven over time. G-21 primary with a full load and a G-27 with Pearce grip extension back up downloaded to 6+1 would be what I would carry if I had been singled out by Obama for persecution.

.........................Auction it off! Make a bundle! Buy a couple new ones.......................

What an excellent idea!

Zim could give it to his brother, who then profits by the millions.

The Hate mongers and DOJ could sue Zim in civil court.
Assets?? what assets??

Ten years later, if Zim still hasn’t been blown away by the black bounty hunters, and things calm down, Zim repatriots the after tax proceeds of the gun, and continues to live with his dark glasses, beard, long hair, and new name, in Belize.

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

I'd be surprised if there's a country on earth that would allow him in,in spite of having been acquitted.And for that matter,if the DOJ were to catch wind of his plans to leave they'd file some sort of emergency order for his passport to be withdrawn by State.

Forgot to mention...only a relatively small percentage of Americans even *have* passports and if,by chance,that includes GZ you can be damn sure that any application he might make for one would result in a call from State to the Attorney Corporal himself.On what authority,you ask? An Executive Order issued by Saint Trayvon’s DC “dad”,as if this crowd *needs* justification.

No, he has a passport. I’m sure I recall that it was taken away when there was a concern he would flee. This might be just the time to do that, before Eric Holder can start in on him again. I wonder if we have an extradition treaty with Peru?

He could try Europe.Europe has a very,*very* dim view of US justice and he could argue that he's already been found not guilty in a court of law and the new charges are an attempt at "double jeopardy".I don't know if that's forbidden in Europe or not,however.
