This is Seth Horvitz of Washington D.C., proudly displaying the high caliber assault rifle that was shipped to him by mistake.
Seth recently became the proud, temporary owner of a brand new Sig Sauer SIG716 semi-automatic carbine. Unfortunately for Seth, he had been planning on accepting delivery of a brand new 39″ Westinghouse television.
Anyway, the mistaken delivery put Horvitz in something of a predicament: Washington D.C. has fairly strict gun laws and assault rifles are strictly verboten. Transporting them around the city is also a criminal offense, so driving it back to UPS could have gotten him in serious trouble – thus Seth did the sensible thing and called the police and they turned up to confiscate the $2,132 rifle… leaving Seth without his gun or a television.
According to Dcist.com, Amazon has declined to comment on what they are doing to remedy the situation. Hopefully it involves a public spanking of whomever was responsible for the screw up (the gun was left in the hallway outside of Seth’s apartment by the way) and a bigger and better television for Seth, because 39 inches doesn’t really cut it in this day and age.
