An official from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives said police found the men in the Jackson, Tennessee area
with a number of guns, including a sawed-off shotgun, in their car.

“They wanted to go to a place where they could shoot as many
non-Caucasian as they could,” the official said, noting that the men
first planned to rob a gun dealer. “They also had a plot to assassinate
Sen. Obama.”

Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president, is leading Republican John McCain in opinion polls ahead of the November 4 election.
