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.

Too bad the cop didn't overreact, shoot first and asked questions later. I guess it's a good thing for GZ he's a white-hispanic huh?

The only people who support Zimmerman are either racist or gun owners. Gun owners stick together, afraid their rights to bare arms would be taking away in the long run if Zimmerman was found convicted.

Was the gun BLACK?

In all seriousness, HOW many death threats has Zimmerman got? Do you really blame him for carrying a gun? He's doing it right.. STILL. Leave him alone America.

The Police edited out Zimmerman's driver's license #.. but didn't conceal his vehicle tag # in the radio traffic. If his vehicle is damaged and it is proven it was done by someone who identified the vehicle via this video.. then Zimmerman might have a legal beef with the PD.
