• With: George Zimmerman, Mark O'Mara

    HANNITY: Tell us about that.

    ZIMMERMAN: At that point, I realized that it wasn't my gun, it wasn't his gun, it was the gun.

    HANNITY: Did he say anything? Because you said he was talking a lot about the gun. Did he say he noticed the gun?

    ZIMMERMAN: He said, "You are going to die tonight (EXPLETIVE DELETED)" and took one hand off of my mouth and I felt it going down my chest towards my belt and my holster, and that's when I -- I didn't have anymore time.

    HANNITY: Do you think you acted more out of a conscious thought? I mean, I know these events happen very quickly. Do you remember conscientiously thinking I have to grab my gun or did you just do it? Was there a conscious thought that went through your head that you thought you were going to die and that you had to take this -- you had to get your weapon and fire?

    ZIMMERMAN: I'd love to give you an answer.

    HANNITY: You don't know?

    ZIMMERMAN: It just happened so quickly.

    HANNITY: Now, there was an eyewitness that was out from the very beginning that, in fact, did tell the police the night of the shooting that he saw Trayvon on top of you and did see the beating. There is no witness to the actual shooting itself, right? Correct.

    ZIMMERMAN: Besides myself.

    HANNITY: Besides yourself?

    ZIMMERMAN: Yes, sir.


    HANNITY: And much more coming up. Does George Zimmerman regret getting out of the car to follow Trayvon Martin? Does he regret carrying his gun? That and his message to the American people and to the Trayvon Martin family -- straight ahead.


    HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity."

    And here's more of my exclusive interview with George Zimmerman.


    HANNITY: What do you want to say to people that did rush to judgment, that suggested that there was racial profiling in this case, and that there was some other motivation in this case?

    ZIMMERMAN: That I'm not a racist and I'm not a murderer.

    HANNITY: When you think back, there was one report or police report that actually said you didn't know after you fired, you didn't think -- you thought you missed?

    ZIMMERMAN: I didn't think I hit him, yes.

    HANNITY: Yes.

    So what happened immediately after the shooting, then, George? I understand one guy came out and he said he had a flash light, that he spoke to you, and you said to call your wife, tell her what happened, "that I shot somebody." Do you remember that conversation?

    ZIMMERMAN: The conversation I had with the gentleman or --

    HANNITY: Yes.

    ZIMMERMAN: Yes, sir.

    HANNITY: You do remember that conversation?

    And he did talk about it, and his suggestion was -- that you were very matter of fact about it. Do you remember what you said to him? Do you think you were in a state of shock? Did you know that Trayvon -- when did you know that Trayvon had died?

    ZIMMERMAN: When I -- probably about an hour after I got to the police station.

    HANNITY: After the shooting did you -- and you saw that he was laying there, and obviously injured, there was a moment when you realized he was shot?

    ZIMMERMAN: Like I said, he sat up and he said something to the effect of "you got it" or "you got me". I assumed he meant, OK, you got the gun, I didn't get it. I'm not going to fight anymore. At which point I got out from under him.

    HANNITY: Is there anything you regret? Do you regret getting out of the car to follow Trayvon that night?

    ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

    HANNITY: Do you regret that you had a gun that night?

    ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

    HANNITY: Do you feel you wouldn't be here for this interview if you didn't have that gun?

    ZIMMERMAN: No, sir.

    HANNITY: You feel you would not be here?

    ZIMMERMAN: I feel it was all God's plan and for me to second guess it or judge it --
