Obama’s Secret Service convoy is packing serious heat

Watching a reporter easily attack Bush with two shoes made me realize just how vulnerable the president is in most situations. I know the Secret Service is very good and that every possible precaution is taken to ensure the safety of the president. However, as I watched the inauguration of Barack Obama on CNN.com the same thought popped up. How safe is one of the most important president’s of our generation?

Well, the video above calmed some of my fears. This is a promotional video for the company that builds the Secret Service’s Yukon XLs that follow the presidential limo.  Specifically, the Dillon M134D Gatling Gun, a six barreled, electrically driven machine gun capable of firing 4,000 rounds per minute. That’s not a typo . . . it fires 4,000 bullets per MINUTE. Potential evil doers beware.
