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.

And who cares? The man was found NOT GUILTY. The media and the current administration are pushing for the race war. It's not often that paparazzi like TMZ perpetuate this kind of crap... oh, wait...

Son: Zimmerman? Zimmerman! Why is he running, Dad?
Father: Because we have to chase him.
Son: He didn't do anything wrong.
Father: Because he's the hero America deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

Of course he carries. I'm betting he has had death threats by the dozens. I'd carry too.

Since he and his lovely wife have been receiving food stamps for a couple of years now, how can he afford to take a trip anywhere? What he needs to do is get a job.
