George Zimmerman


Stopped By Cops, Packing Heat

7/31/2013 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

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.

Leave the guy alone, TMZ. Harvey will have blood on his hands if something happens to him in Texas. If that happens, I wonder how Harvey would feel if somebody posted his own home address & vehicle information on the internet.

Going "nowhere in particular," but carrying a gun.
Seems to be compensating for some kind of perceived physical lack or he thinks it makes him a "real" man.

Well people miss the fact he told the officer he had one, instead of hiding it, these racial indicators need to sit down, and march and riot towards black on black crime, let it go, people the jury had spoken. On yes I'm a black male

GZ is Not guilty and legally has a CCW permit to carry a firearm! Part of the responsibility of this permit is to inform Any police officer that has contact with GZ it is GZ's duty to inform te officer for officer safety and citizen safety. Now TMZ let this man move on with his life! Everyone knows he high probable cause that he is going to be confronted by some uneducated food stamp collecting street link that is trying to make a name for himself amongst his food stamp collecting welfare hood rats that a use the system that we pay into with our tax money.

He's carrying a gun to protect himself ?? I wonder why somebody wants to kill him, he just killed a KID!!! Wait this is the funny part..... In self defense okay ... Now a 17 year old is stronger than a 30 something year old guy...Wow... Or maybe he was following a teenager because he or she looks suspicious...

He was FOUND NOT GUILTY. He's free to do drive down the road with a firearm in his car. At least he didn't use it on the cop, as some of those savages have.

In the Video you can hear the cop take a picture then start typing on a cell phone. It would be funny to see what was said in that text

You good folks at TMZ missed the best point here.

Zimmerman admitted to having a gun AND THE COP COULD NOT HAVE CARED LESS.

Now I wonder if the cop would have drawn his weapon if that was Trayvon in the truck...

Cop sent George on his way with nothing but a smile and barely a warning.

Geesh! When will the left leaning anti-gun zealots [And TMZ] finally understand that Zimmerman wasn't convicted of 2nd degree murder or manslaughter because he didn't violate the law. He was found Not Guilty. He wasn't given a traffic ticket because his speed wasn't excessive enough to overly concern the officer. And Zimmerman was legally carrying his gun while in Texas. Heck, he could have had it concealed in his belt as he drove if he had wanted too. He was required by Tx law to immediately notify the officer of his hand gun during any kind of official contact, which is what he did. In Oklahoma, we have open carry and Zimmerman could open carry here if he wanted too and had his Florida license on him. I open carry a Glock 23 .40 cal in a belt holster every day. In 18 yrs I've never had to even show my license. Not one instance of trouble. And Okla law enforcement state wide have not reported one instance of trouble involving someone who is legally open carrying with a hand gun license. So enough of the ginned-up anti-gun hype! Some of you guys & gals act like you're about to pee your pants whenever anyone even mentions the word 'Gun' or 'Boo'!.
