    Now that he's been cleared of a murder charge, George Zimmerman will get his gun back, according to his laywer. Attorney Mark O'Mara said that Zimmerman needs the weapon now because "there are a lot of people out there who actually hate him." O'Mara also said that Zimmerman doesn't regret carrying his Kel Tec 9 pistol on February 26, 2012, even though it lead to Trayvon Martin's death. "I think that he feels truly in his heart that if he did not have that weapon that night he might not be here," O'Mara said. Zimmerman, whose father was a judge, is now reportedly thinking about going to law school so that he can help people who have been unfairly prosecuted. "I'd like to help other people like me," a friend quoted Zimmerman as saying.
