    Man brandishes at protesters...

    These folks have been protesting for quite some time now. Their protesting has been causing quite a ruckus. The local news has been covering them for a few days not. However, this happened and guess what? Not much local coverage? YET..

    Man, 84, accused of pointing gun at anti-Obama protesters arrested in suburban Atlanta
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."

    Liberals: tolerant of everyone...(who has the same ideology)

    At 84, you'da thunk he knew better. Proof that age does not equal wisdom...

    Not a smart move on his part, I’m just surprised the anti-obama protesters were not arrested also after all our Glorious Leader is to be revered and can do no wrong.

    If it had been a Tea Party Conservative man brandishing, he would have been arrested for terrorist acts, with enhanced penalties because a firearm was involved, bond at $100K +...

    But no, a ZERO supporter, wags his gun at two ladies protesting against ZERO... and he gets a $1000.00 bond.

    And, there won't be any need for an attorney, IF it ever goes to the bench... Probably a plea deal to "stopping on the traveled portion of a thoroughfare..." $100 fine including costs... wink wink/ nod nod.... Oh, and here's your gun back.

    I could go on and on about if it had been a conservative the warrant would have been issued for his home as well, and an ARSENAL of guns (870 wingmaster, Marlin .22, and of course, the gun in the car) would have been listed as an AK shotgun, an assault rifle, and a Glock with extended ammunition feeding device, along with a cache of ammunition.

    But I won't go on, no sense in preaching to the choir.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    FYI.. The area that the protesters were in is, quite conservative.. The local liberal, Atlanta media is not elaborating on this incident..

    But this is in Gwinnett County, Georgia. If it were City of Atlanta, I would have agreed with you.

    Hope he doesn't get life in prison...which could be just a few months.

    Because he is an obama supporter he will be charged with all misdemeanors.

    The liberal authorities must be conflicted on this...

    On one hand you have one of those crazy gun nuts being stupid with a gun. On the other hand you have a loyal Obummer fan doing something stupid. How do you play this one out?

    Fercryinoutloud: The man is 84! We don't know the whole story, and it could very well be that he is cognitively impaired.
    "Oldtimer's Disease" or effects of a stroke, or a brain tumor. It could also have been an attempt at suicide; if not by cop by jail; as Retsupt said, a life sentence for him will just be a few months--- if that.

    Here's a thought. Just as we have a separate juvenile justice system for people too young to be held responsible we need
    a separate "old timer's justice system" for people who are too old and ill to be handed the same sort of punishment that would be appropriate for a 29 y.o.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    You ignore politics and understand that it is likely the man ain't playing with a full deck. He probably belongs in a hospital and not in jail.
