An 84-year-old Obama supporter was arrested by Gwinnett County Police at his home in Georgia Tuesday, after pointing a gun at two female “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” protesters on Sept. 28.

Roy Smith was charged with pointing a firearm at another and three counts of misdemeanor simple assault for driving up and aiming his handgun at protesters Toni Pendley and Marge Moore.

Smith“He was looking straight at me,” Pendley told Channel 2 Action News.

Others near the scene witnessed the incident as well, reporting Smith’s description, vehicle description and license plate number to 911 dispatchers. Witnesses specifically described a black, balding man, with glasses, driving a maroon Mercury Grand Marquis.

“He just showed the ladies the gun like ‘move out of here, I’ve got a gun’,” the witness told the 911 dispatcher.

Smith not only aimed his firearm at the women, but also threw an unknown chemical liquid at Moore.

“I felt it on my foot… it burned, so I thought it was a household chemical,” Moore told WSB Radio.

Amazingly, only moments before the attack, a different vehicle filled with other tolerant Obama supporters threatened to kill Pendley and Moore as it drove past.

Although initial reports claimed that Smith’s licenses plate did not match the vehicle type on record, police were eventually successful in tracking the vehicle to Smith’s home. Upon arrival, police were able to secure a search warrant for the vehicle parked in the driveway, finding a handgun in Smith’s driver’s side door, perfectly matching the description given by witnesses.

After contacting Smith, a police report revealed that Smith admitted to having the gun in his vehicle on the day of the incident, but claimed he did not point it at the protesters. Smith told investigators that “everyone was lying on him in an attempt to get him into trouble.”

“Not your typical suspect,” Gwinnett Police Cpl. Ed Ritter said. “Doesn’t matter what his age was, he still threatened somebody with that gun and he is being held accountable for it.”

According to jail records, Smith is currently free on $1,000 bond.

Incredibly, on Atlanta’s WBS-TV News Facebook page, other Obama supporters applauded Smith’s actions, claiming they have grown tired of people protesting the president.

“I don’t blame this man at all for what he did. It is getting old,” the second most popular comment said, receiving 31 Facebook likes.

Despite the threats, the woman returned to the overpass the following Saturday, defying all attempts made to scare them off.

“We’re not going to let him or anyone intimidate us,” Pendley said.

  2. Lone Ranger says:

    This is a good one… obama supporters aren't pro gun are they… Maybe just pro gun for them?

  3. EGK says:

    When are you going to post stories about all the right-wingers pointing guns and threatening Obama supporters?

  4. WTE says:

    Imagine that another intolerant obama voter

  5. gary sheldon says:

    Tea party people do not behave like the elitist lords, princes, and little admirals like the racist in chief , his DOJ racist Holder ,Watters, Rangel, and the rest of those who love the flavor of the corrupt Kool Aid.

  6. fasd says:

    FBHO. Liberals are dangerous people.

  7. WTE says:

    I love this site. Please be aware of this site and it's commentors rebulidinfreedm.org is a communist web site. They will send in spy bots like kevin stowell, roger, and L4S to take other websites down. These bots need banned right away. They run by an anti-American named Top Shot who lies and claims to be a US veteran when he is in fact an KGB agent. Stay away from that site

    • Roger says:

      You sure are a piece of work.
      You, the guy who advocates for jihad is pretending to be level headed enough to warn others or great sites and people as not being deserving of a forum?

      "The whole town needs locked in the church and the church set on fire. IMO"

      You are the one banned from sites defending western/American values and your immaturity here by all the non comments that just take up space and distract real discussion prove it.

      Wte, you are truly a small little 'wee' man. People will decide for themselves and your out bursts are just that. Now, can you just let people debate and discuss the story.. please?

      • WTE says:

        As you can see the spy bot replied within minutes.

        Please take my warning seriously

        • Roger says:

          As all can see, you didn't address a single issue.

          I did.

          So, who would be a spy bot. And why can't I reply to comments insulting great people by name? Are you the arbitor of what's allowed? I don't think so.

          I'm sure they'll give it all the serious consideration it deserves. Are you going to suggest I suck your pistol again now?

          I don't live near any mountains. Imagine how better off the world would be if you stuck a 454 Super Red Hawk in your mouth and pulled the trigger. You can borrow mine

          • WTE says:

            That would be great if you would. The world would be better off

          • Roger says:

            Thank you, you just made my point for me.

            You expose yourself.

            Now how many more comments are you supposed to make before you have met your quota of the day trolling from your work terminal? Are you afraid if you aren't effective you might end up like Majtaba Ahmadi?

  8. Can we just start the war already?

  9. Brian says:

    What this man (as well as his fellow Obama supporters) FAIL to remember, is that REGARDLESS of how tired or annoyed they are with people who don’t share their views and speak badly of their “lord and savior” is that we ALL have the right to our opinion and to express said opinion, regardless of who disagrees (or even agrees) with us, it IS our right to do so under the 1st Amendment. Also, as a proponent of self defense and the right to defend oneself with firearms I am ashamed to count him amongst us, If he truly DID draw his weapon on the protesters he SHOULD be punished as such regardless of his age, ace political affiliation etc. You DON’T have to like it just as no one else has to like what YOU have to say there Mr. Smith, SO DEAL WITH IT!

  10. AJ Beck says:

    A typical response by a negro not getting his way !

  11. Roger says:

    If you aren' there to debate or discuss, why take up the space with your comment? Are you trying to make a quota or something?

  12. Roger says:

    Maybe you don't know how to use a keyboard or something.

    You might want to check your comments and see if you deleted the post and just edited it to a period.

    Most folks actually make comments.

  13. Roger says:

    Did you accidentally delete your comment?
    You might want to figure out how your system works.

  14. Roger says:

    Still nothing to say?

  15. Roger says:

    Oh look, you still have nothing to say but want to distract from serious debate.

  16. Roger says:

    You still have nothing.
    You still might be nothing.

    It's hard to tell when the quality of your debate is consistently at this level.

  17. Roger says:

    Your comment stands on it's own merits too.

    A nothing.

  18. Roger says:

    Once again just a nothing comment.
    Better left unsaid.

    But you aren't mature enough to realize that.

  19. Roger says:

    And a comment that has no merit and no content really isn't much of a comment is it?

  20. Roger says:

    Still the nothing.
    Still wanting to make sure everyone knows it.

    How sad.

  21. Roger says:

    Not up to thinking about content in your comments?

  22. Kevin Stowell says:

    He's on his period.

  23. Roger says:

    Boy, that comment was 'spot on'!

  24. Kevin Stowell says:

    Poor ol' Wee. Desperately needing but not finding a clue.

  25. WTE says:

    Poor kevin, no child to molest so he comes here to try and get down roger's pants

  26. Kevin Stowell says:

    Poor wee. Didn't have money for a movie so his father has to entertain him.

    Why are you "working" weekends?

  27. Roger says:

    You don't engage much of anything. But yet here you are to keep serious debate from happening.

  28. Roger says:

    It seems there have been a lot of changes since they replaced Mojtaba Ahmadi.

  29. Kevin Stowell says:

    Heh heh. Change you can believe in.

  30. Roger says:

    It was a subtle way of letting all the iranian supported trolls what happens if you don't produce.

    And now all the trista trolls are desperate and floundering with such vigor!

    Rumor has it, that it wasn't the IDF that took him out, but their own.

  31. Kevin Stowell says:

    Excitable little psychotics, aren't they? Did you see this a few days ago. H/t to Heza and L4S.

  32. WTE says:

    not to a troll like you

  33. Roger says:

    Wee, that's funny from you. You just came to a site geared for debate and when you had nothing to say instead of just not saying it had to make a statement that you had nothing to say.

    And while demonstrating that level of maturity you pretend I'm a troll?

    This story was very important and you reduced it to a 2nd grade playground temper tantrum.

    The rule of law should matter, and this obama supporter doesn't think so. That should be the issue being discussed.

  34. WTE says:

    The story was being discussed until you and your troll brigade showed up.

    The comments show that

  35. Roger says:

    Wte, you small little man. I discussed it and you didn't like it. I don't much care what you like or who you think is deserviing of a forum to comment on.

    I use forums like this to debate and discuss ideas that are important and relevant. If I was wrong then you should be able to just say why.

  36. WTE says:

    Your REPLY to my comment was a direct attack at me.

    GFY you sorry a$$ POS

  37. Roger says:

    There still seems to be an abundance of intolerance.

    My comment stands on it's own merits.
