Amazon.com Thinks Americans Need More Guns, Sends Man Assault Rifle Instead of TV

Ever since the Colorado shooting, America has been torn about their stance regarding gun control and the ease in which Americans can purchase guns. Well, apparently Amazon.com has chosen a side, and it's all for freedom of guns, even if you don't want one.

Earlier this week Seth Horvitz, a Washington, D.C. man was waiting eagerly for the delivery of a television he had ordered from Amazon, only to find a military-grade assault rifle delivered to his door.

Who says that it’s too easy for Americans to get guns!?

“When I saw some metal parts inside the box, I thought, ‘Maybe this is a TV stand or mount or something,” he told Wired magazine. “When I realized it was an assault rifle, it was pure shock and disbelief.”

But after realizing that his “television” could actually kill people, Horvitz did the right thing, he immediately called the cops who confiscated the box after telling the surprised gun-owner that his newly delivered Sig Sauer 716 patrol rifle was illegal in D.C.

As it turns out, the gun, which came with an invoice for $1,590, was meant for the Independence Gun Shop, a Pennsylvania-based business, from online retailer Gunbuyer.com.

UPS, which delivered the package, likely caused the error, Horvitz said. The box had two different address labels on it — one with his proper address, and one with another.

“UPS puts the name label on and then they put a second small sticker — a redundant sticker with the tracking information on it,” Horvitz said. “There were two different small stickers as well. There was a small sticker that matched the label under mine, and a small sticker that matched mine.”
