Like a tiny little bb would get through the Obama's Presidential Beast limo.

The rifle turned out to be a BB gun, but officers did not know that at the time, and had to tackle the man, according to sources.

That's not really the point. Law enforcement/Secret Service must deem it a deadly weapon until confirmed otherwise. Many models of BB guns look like the real thing now a days anyways, especially from a distance.

I own this particular Pellet rifle below, pretty aggressive looking for a pellet gun.

Well I heard that back in the 20's or 30's someone used the scope on their gun so they could see the president better :D

Am I the only one that saw "motorcycle" instead of "motorcade"? I was really looking forward to seeing pics of Obama's motorcycle.

Since when does a BB gun NOT look like a real gun ?

Technically. A BB gun is a real gun. Those plastic AirSoft guns are what the toys are now.

If it's going more than 1000 FPS, I don't want to be hit by it. DocM would understand ;)

******* was lucky he didn't get shot

Not a smart move by any means. Watch him be tested for mental illness along with drugs etc... and then if this spreads far enough, watch all the Anti-Gun lobbyists join in on the game against BB Guns now.

I'm surprised the guy didn't get shot. Is definitely a pretty stupid thing to do, might as well been a real gun.

Aren't these things meant to have an orange muzzle?

First of all, there's no accounting for people doing stupid things like painting the muzzles black to make them look more real. Second of all, the Presidential security staff probably doesn't care whether it has an orange muzzle or not (obviously easy to fake) - if it's gun-shaped and pointed at the President, it's fair game.
