Seth Horvitz, a Northeast D.C. resident, thought he had ordered a new high-definition television a few days ago through Amazon.com from a third-party merchant. When the package arrived yesterday, however, Horvitz opened the oddly shaped box to find something completely different.
A very big gun.
Instead of the flat-panel TV he had bought to enjoy with his wife, who is pregnant, Horvitz opened the long packaging to discover a Sig Sauer SIG716, a high-caliber, semi-automatic assault rifle capable of mowing down, well, just about anything. Its manufacturer, Swiss Arms AG, describes it as "the rifle of choice when you require the power of a larger caliber carbine." Awesome.
Not one god damn word. Except maybe to tell Amazon they still owe me a tv... but I might still keep my mouth shut.
Also, Amazon doesn't sell guns. So this is squarely on the shipper.

...unless you hate guns then you'd have to scream at the top of your lungs about it.
...or unless you REALLY wanted that HDTV really bad.
...or unless don't know someone that could give you fair market value for it in order to then buy the HDTV you always wanted.
I saw him on the news tonight. He was so scared of the weapon, and he looked like a farking hipster. What a douche. Oh no! A gun! I'd better call the police!!!
This ordeal is like a fire tempering a sword. It's making chewy even tougher. If he got leprosy and his arm fell off, he'd beat the shit out of a bear, dip his stump in lemon juice and sew it back on with his good hand.
