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.

It's really none of that cops business where he was going. I personally could care less where he goes, what he does and whether or not he's carrying. He was found not guilty by a jury. Let it go TMZ, quit trying to toss gas on an already smoldering fire. If you want to be outraged about something why not ask the families of the Benghazi terrorist attack victims how it feels to be coming up on the one year anniversary of their loved ones death and still not have the truth about what happened.

Everyone keeps saying he is getting threats so he needs the gun...

Ummmmm was he getting them before he shot and killed someone? Or does he just hate skittles?

TMZ, seriously obsessed with him much? I get following the trial but following him & everything he does? Really not the sign of a busy news day. Or for that matter a busy celeb. day.

As I sit here reading this I personally think that George Zimmerman will kill again after that first one the next will be easier there is no way that man should be allowed to carry a gun, his license should be revoked and he should never have a job in security any more

Ok, on one hand I totally understand why the guy is carrying a weapon. I mean, hello half the nation wants his head on a platter. On the other hand, after such a high profile case you'd think he may want to lay low for a while. I don't know, I've got a bad feeling

Is he on his way to Hollywood?

Okay, he has a permit to carry a gun in Florida. Can you carry a gun in Texas without a permit?
