The two then allegedly planned to kill Obama, despite their doubts they could pull off an assassination.
They've been identified as 20-year old Daniel Cowart of Bells, Tennessee, and 18-year-old Paul Schlesselman, of West Helena, Arkansas. Both are being held without bond. They allegedly had a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols when they were arrested.
The Obama campaign hasn't commented on the arrests.
