BLOOMFIELD, CT – Ah, the Red-Ryder 200-shot BB gun.

The not-so-secret dream of all the cool boys and girls. Yeah, you want it, you know you do. But there are a couple of things you need to remember, such as YOU’LL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT!’

That and never shoot the dang thing whenever the President of the United States is in town, especially when he’s rounding up a posse to take on opponents of stricter gun control legislation.

But apparently, Joseph Stravinsky, 27, didn’t get the memo. Cops heard some ‘pinging’ behind a house near the University of Hartford where President Obama used the ghosts of Sandy Hook and the relatives of the murdered school kids to rally support for legislation that’s facing bi-partisan opposition in Congress.

Cops say he was shooting cans with a BB gun, and that he told them he was homeless and didn’t know the President was in town. The bright side to this is that at least now he has a roof over his head and he’s up to date on current events.
