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.

Thanks for tipping off the world as to where he is -- and I'm glad he's still packing.

this seems like a big ole pile bull****, where is the proof this is zimmerman? where is the record of his warning because when a texas cop issues a warning it is filed just like a ticket. TMZ you should not just post crap because someone said it was true. The guy may be "a" george zimmerman but is he "the" george zimmerman

This is a travesty. What would Trayvon be doing today if he were alive?

And don't answer "Scratching furiously to get out of the coffin."

..."nowhere in particular"... now that is suspicious. the cop should have shot him dead for that. that is like totally 'acting weird'. maybe he's on drugs or something. it really seems like there's something wrong with this guy. he could be dangerous.

He should not be allowed to carry a gun. I don't care that they found him not guilty. He is a menace. Maybe the gun will accidentally go off in his direction. One can hope.

I do not get you people, do not know the basics of law. He was proven not guilty. So he was speeding, so he had a gun. The cop let him off for the speeding and the gun was legal. leave him alone. NOT GUILTY!

Okay, so this is really funny. I am a middle aged white women and because I think GZ is a child killer all the racists on here are replying to me "typical black response".
So much for your stereotyping!
