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.

TMZ--I have thoroughly enjoyed the fact that there aren't many Kardashian stories anymore, but I've noticed when there is, it's nothing negative about them. Pimp Mama's talk show is tanking big time, she can't get guests outside of family, a few friends and animals--and nothing on TMZ. Why? Pimp Mama was riding a camel on her show yesterday! Hysterical stuff. After all the years of pumping them up, we should be allowed at least one or two stories on her show's demise.

Good post #1. If you have a permit to carry its no problem. Its your right to own and carry a weapon if you are registered to do so. Let it go TMZ. Leave this man alone.

George had black grandparents, went to his high school prom with a black girl, and mentored black kids after school. It seem the Zimmerman case was more about black on black violence than the Hispanic on Black violence that blacks are trying to turn it into.

Well now people know that he is Texas and near what town and what his truck looks like. This will help the crazies track him down and try to collect on the hit money. At least the cops cut him a break on speeding.


I am glad he is packing heat. He knows how to use a gun. I hope he lays out anyone who tries to take his life.
