Does a pellet rifle qualify as a firearm for a person to be charged with lewd pointing of a firearm and possession of a firearm while intoxicated?
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.

The answer is YES. Since pellet guns closely resemble regular firearms and the victim could not generally tell the difference between a pellet gun and a regular firearm.

I wish you the best of luck!

What does the "lewd" part of pointing refer to?

It refers to the pointing being "crude and offensive".

That sounds like police just coming up with every possible think to charge a person with, isn't it?

It would depend on the defendant's action, but it is a valid criminal charge under Oklahoma law which is a felony that carries up to 10 years in prison upon conviction.

I wish you the best of luck!
