1:55 PM PT --
We've obtained the police dashcam video of the stop ... in which George Zimmerman informs the cop he has a firearm in his glove box.

Both Zimmerman and the officer are very polite to each other during the stop.

Zimmerman remains in his vehicle during the entire incident.

George Zimmerman
is still armed and theoretically dangerous ... he was stopped by cops for speeding and revealed he had a gun in his glove compartment.

Zimmerman was speeding in Forney, Texas on Sunday, just after noon, when he was stopped by police.  Zimmerman told cops he was headed "nowhere in particular," and informed them he had a firearm in his glove compartment.

Zimmerman was given a warning, after cops determined he was free of warrants.  He was sent on his way with a polite goodbye, "Have a safe trip."

The stop lasted around 5 minutes.

BTW ... law enforcement tells TMZ ... he was NOT wearing a disguise ... it was full blown George Zimmerman.

I find it interesting how many hypocrites on this site are saying "leave him alone - he was acquitted - he should be able to live his life". But you are the same people still bashing OJ. Calling him a killer. Wasn't he acquitted too? I guess it all depends on the color of the skin...

I live in Texas and as long as child killer George Zimmerman is in this state packing heat, my teenage kids won't be walking to the convenience store anytime soon.

Thanks for the heads up TMZ!

And how many other people in Texas who got pulled over for speeding that day also had a gun in this state where you are allowed to carry a licensed firearm?

Already been on the phone with good ole Forney Texas police asking what right they had to release this pic. Sounds like they are getting hit hard already. They are scrambling over there as they should be. Somebody will be losing a job over this. Be sure to cover that story too TMZ.

It's kind of funny watching the racists on here getting whipped into a frenzy defending child killer GZ.

Best entertainment all day!

Last time I looked it was still legal to have a registered gun, Obama and this government has not taken that way yet. Zimmerman is smart he drove to Texas one of the few states that allows people to be free. If more people carried legal weapons the crime rate throughout the country would drop overnight.
