So reports CNN and other outlets. I can't imagine why.
Zimmerman fears for his life. He's a reviled figure to millions, despite his acquittal Saturday night in Trayvon Martin's killing.
Zimmerman's attorney describes him as a marked man.
"He has to be very cautious and protective of his safety because there is still a fringe element who have said ... that they will not listen to a verdict of not guilty," said Mark O'Mara.
When asked by CNN's Piers Morgan whether Zimmerman will keep the gun used in the killing, his brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., said, "I don't see any reason why he shouldn't.
But best of all:
And he may feel the need to be armed.Now that he's been acquitted of murder, he "may need" to start carrying a gun.
And furthermore why should he have any fears for his life?

Why should he? He's got a license to kill. Anyone he 'feels' threatened by.
