FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.

# 8 - being issued a warning ticket, he signed it--maybe Highway Patrol officer made a photocopy of it. Someone got the report rapidly to post it online. Usually a waiting period of several days before tickets are normally available for release.

Guess what-- Florida and Texas have reciprocity regard their concealed-carry licenses--GZ´s Florida permit is good in Texas. Guess what else--even without a permit, it´s legal to carry a handgun in your car in Texas as long as you aren´t committing a jailable offense (ie not a traffic offense). #3 is not far off the mark... Guess what else? CBS is a putrescent pile of of--well you probably guessed it.

So Holder didn´t get his way when he stated that Zimmerman shouldn´t receive his gun back.

The only bad thing with this is that Zimmerman´s whereabouts have been disclosed.

Go to DRUDGE and see a still shot from the officer´s car cam.

The vehicle,(with license plate) that Zimmerman is driving is clearly identifiable, and the article gives the make, model and year!

Typical See Bee Ess bias in the headline. Zimmerman was not "armed". That infers that you have the weapon on your person. Reading the police report, something the "reporter" at See Bee Ess obviously did not do, it clearly states that Zimmerman informed the officer that he had a gun in the glove compartment, a proper place to carry it while driving.

And still they wonder why their ratings are swirling the bowl.

From the article, "and the case has sparked debate about race and self-defense laws." There has been practically NO debate over self defense laws - it´s all been about "stand your ground" which was not even mentioned in the trial.

If I were George Zimmerman I would be armed. It is a common sense measure. There have been countless death threats in public and doubtless many more in private. To report this simple and obvious act of self-defense as though it were notable or newsworthy is incredibly foolish and biased. It is characteristic of contemporary journalism.

A headline reading "George Zimmerman found to be unarmed when stopped for speeding" would be newsworthy because it would indicate something contrary to logic and human experience."

This headline and the story accompanying it are the work of sissies.

In Texas, you can carry a gun in your vehicle while traveling anywhere in the State. You do not have to inform the officer that you have a weapon, but most Texans do let the officer know we are carrying a gun in our vehicle, out of common courtesy for the officer. Most officers behave exactly like this officer when you do inform them about your pistol.

NBC News online has a video cam recording of the actual stop. The police car pulls in behind him and the license plate is visible.

I couldn´t make out what was on his license tag, but I´m wondering if it is possible to make it clear enough to figure it out. If so, that should not have been made available to news outlets, or anyone else for obvious reasons.

Warning ticket? The cop probably just wanted his autograph.

He may be here house hunting. Had his case happened here it NEVER would have made it to trial. Unlike Florida, in Texas ONLY a Grand Jury can render a felony indictment and no Texas GJ would do it based on that evidence.
It only went to trial in Florida because after the local DA refused to press charges the Governor or AG appointed a special prosecutor who got a judge to render an indictment, something which cannot happen under Texas law.

When the cop asked Zimmerman where he was going he answered nowhere in particular. The cop asked him why he said that. Zimmerman replied: "Didn´t you see my name?" Of course, he was not going to give his destination.

When he was declared not guilty they gave him back his gun before he left the court house.

Yes, it was wrong to speed. I am also a sinner. I have received a ticket for speeding. Coming back from Georgia, to Florida, I did get a little too eager. So what? Am I a criminal?

GZ was acquitted. He is now a private citizen. What is the media trying to do to Zimmerman. Of course he is armed, he needs to be after the way he is being treated by the media. I think that they hope that he gets gunned down on the street. The left wing lowlife media would love that. What scum. Let George be, he didn´t do anything wrong.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
