A customer in Washington, D.C., ordered a 39-inch television from Amazon.com. This is what arrived on his doorstep instead.
When the UPS package arrived at Seth Horovitz's home, he thought it must be an accessory for the TV he ordered. The package was too small to be a TV, but it was addressed to him. Instead, Horovitz, who was expecting dinner guests any minute, "reached into the box and felt the weapon’s pistol grip and trigger." It was the first time he had ever touched a gun.
“I definitely knew it was a mistake,” Horovitz told the Post. “But I was confused as to how that kind of mix-up could happen. Especially given the recent events, the recent shootings. It surprised me to see how easy it would be for a gun to show up on someone’s doorstep — not just a gun, but an assault weapon.”
Horovitz called the cops who took the gun away. Apparently he's still waiting for that TV.
