    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A jury convicted Georgia man Darren Huff on Tuesday of a federal firearms charge in what police said was a plot to take over a Tennessee courthouse and force President Barack Obama out of office.

    The 41-year-old was found guilty of carrying a firearm in interstate commerce with the intent to use it in a civil disorder. He was acquitted of using a firearm in relation to another felony. He faces up to five years in prison.

    Huff was stopped by Tennessee officers in April 2010 and told them he was bringing guns into the state from Dallas, Ga., to support efforts to arrest Monroe County officials who refused to indict Obama.

    Officers testified Huff was carrying a loaded Colt .45 in a holster on his hip plus an assault rifle and 200 or 300 rounds of ammunition in a tool box in his truck. They said he also had a document he claimed was a "citizens' arrest warrant" for officials, saying they were domestic enemies and had been charged with treason.

    Huff choked back tears as he told the jury Friday that he was humiliated because "my government has called me a potential domestic terrorist."

    Maybe if you didn't behave as a potential domestic terrorist you wouldn't face the humiliation of being called a potential domestic terrorist.

    Now tell me, how many of you even knew there was a Dallas, GA?? This guy is a freak, not 100% sure he's actually from Dallas but he needs to do his time. Hopefully he won't get out and do something stupid in a couple of years.
