A District of Columbia man who ordered a television from on-line retailer amazon.com received a semi-automatic rifle instead.
Seth Horvitz instantly knew that the long, narrow box on his doorstep couldn’t possibly contain the television he and his wife ordered. “I actually flagged down the UPS guy and asked if there was anything else for me,” Horvitz told TODAY.com. Confused, he took the box inside and opened it.
At first, when he saw some metal parts, he thought, “maybe it was some accessories for the television.”
But that thought didn’t last long. Horvitz soon found himself staring at a Sig Sauer SIG716.
