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.”

    So the question is where does George Zimmerman go and who does he see to get his life back? It’s clear that the Zimmerman trial was much more political than a legal contest. With Zimmerman’s legal battle over, the administration has rejoined the fight against stand your ground laws even though stand your ground was not applicable in the Martin / Zimmerman incident. That said, it is imperative that the general public be informed that the reason stand your ground was not applicable to George Zimmerman’s defense was that Trayvon Martin unexpectedly ambushed and assaulted George Zimmerman. At then time that Martin attacked Zimmerman, George Zimmerman had every right to use any and every means at his disposal in his self defense.
