Transcript for Zimmerman Attorney Says Client Will Get Gun Back
We begin with reaction to that not guilty verdict in the trial of george zimmerman. From the white house to the courthouse where he walked out a free man again. Moments before zimmerman shaking hands, thanking his defense team. Rarely showing any kind of emotion during the trial. Displaying a broad smile right there. Trayvon martin's parents in the courtroom the entire trial, not there for the verdict for that moment. Tweeting overnight, his mother calling it my darkest hour. His father saying he was heartbroken but proud of the fight for his son. Outside the courtroom in a demonstrations across the country, outpouring of sorrow. Some believing justice was not served. Other say they felt for trayvon martin's parents but that jurors followed the law. President obama saying we are a tion of laws and the jury has spoken. I now ask every american to respect the call for calm reflection from two parentsho lost their young son. We have team coverage from florida to washington to reaction across this country. And we begin here with an abc news exclusive, abc's matt gutman one an one with george zimmerman's defense team. Good evening, matt. Reporter: Good evening to you, david. We learned tonight that george zimmerman is huddling close to his family. Last night, after the verdict was read, he walked straight out of the front doors of that courthouse, still his attorney tells me that he will never be able to live a normal life. George zimmerman will always have to look over his shoulder. Reporter: It was the gun that killed trayvon martin, and tonight george zimmerman's attorney tells abc news in an exclusive interview that his client will get it back. Does he get that gun back? Yes, he does. Reporter: How do you think he feels about guns now? I think that he feels truly in his heart that if he did not have that weapon that night he might not be here. Reporter: So do you think if he could he would carry a gun again? Yes, even more reason now isn't there? There are a lot of people out there who actually hate him though they shouldn't. Reporter: So you say he needs to protect himself? Yes. Reporter: And the way to do is to carry a weapon? One way. Justice for trayvon. Reporter: Because of those threats, george zimmerman isn't free o mara told me, despite being acquitted on all charges. Where does he go now? I don't know. He will never be able to just walk down the street and not worry about who's looking at him or who's walking up behind him. Reporter: Does george zimmerman still walk around with a bullet proof vest? He wasn't during the trial but I know that when he was out in public he wears it. I think that he has a legitimate fear and that he was a legitimate concern who's going to overreact. You think your bond will be released? O'mara said the threats have made zimmerman paranoid and his notoriety has made him un-hirable. Reporter: He's almost untouchable. Unfortunately, even though he did nothing wrong but protect his own life that night the way that things were visited upon him by the way things were handled initially made him a pariah even though it shouldn't have. Reporter: But zimmerman isn't the only one fearing for his safety tonight. A lawyer for trayvon's parents told us their location is being kept secret because of the death threats they received. Still martin's father tweeted this. "Even though I am broken hearted my faith is unshattered, I will always love my baby travy." That tweet generated 50,000 retweets. We learned that the martin's spent this morning in church. They said they are broken hearted by the verdict but they accept it. Their attorney says that he is now considering legal action, civil action against george zimmerman, who was acquitted of second degree murder but may not have seen the last of a courtroom.
