A Massachusetts man is facing several gun charges after he was arrested for allegedly sending death threats to the president.

According to prosecutors, Stephen Perroti was arrested after the United States Secret Service contacted Lawrence, MA police in regards to an investigation into the alleged threats.

Law enforcement searched Perroti's home on Thursday and found an A-R 15 assault rifle, three scopes and a four high capacity magazine and ammunition.

According to a police report obtained by The Eagle Tribune newspaper, Perrotti allegedly threatened to kill President Obama, "even if it takes a lifetime."

He has pled not guilty.
