A man drove to the Capitol with a rifle and said he had a delivery for Preisdent Obama, police said.

The man was arrested and transported to Capitol Hill police headquarters for further processing. Charges against him are pending.

Good old rednecks from Florida. It doesn't surprise me. I always said that the florida education system was lacking. What was this moron thinking? 'I'll just drive right in there with my rifle' and that he wouldn't be stopped and charged? Hello. Is anybody really thaat stupid? It would seem so! And to plead 'Not Guilty" ? Wow. that's all that I can say.

I don't know if that qualifies as 'an attempt' ... or if it's stopping something before an attempt was made. Either way, it's a good thing the whack is off the streets.

He also went to the Capitol Building, according to the snippet. Last I heard, the president doesn't really do much there, as we works/lives at the White House.

Perhaps it is a test to see how the police would react. Like mapping exact reactions.
