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.

Well for all you dumb ****s who choose not to protect yourself- go you when you find yourself in a dangerous situation. I don't go anywhere without a gun, it's in my Chanel purse with me all the time, good for him.

I guess he has earned his "white" man card. Until now George Zimmerman has identified himself as hispanic. If he had been pulled over before Trayvon , the cop would have identified him as hispanic. Sorry, but he can't pass for a white male,

Why do people ignore that Trayvon would be alive if Trayvon hadn't committed felony aggravated battery.

Since the police still have his gun, wondering where he got the new "firearm" (who says firearm other than GZ or a cop).

Seriously...you showed his vehicle? Are you nuts? This man is being hounded by the media and by people who want to harm him. Leave him alone, he is not a Kardashian or Amanda Bynes.

OMG! Glad it was a white cop and not a black cop! He probably would have blown him away just for stopping him. Take the gun away from him!

This guys is receiving multiple death threats every day. Of course he's going to be packing his gun. We all have a right to defend ourselves. Stop your anti-gun editorializing.
