Well… one guy did accidentally:
D.C. hipster Seth Horvitz says he ordered a flat-screen television from a third party through Amazon.com. He received a package that was left in the hallway outside of his Northeast D.C. apartment Tuesday, but instead of a television, he found a black semi-automatic rifle inside the box.
*GASP* And reporter Paul Wagner spent the day “investigating”!

What is a hipster to do? I’ll tell you what he does.. he “FLIPS OUT!” as he says in the video. I’m pretty the main reason he didn’t just pretend like nothing happened and keep the rifle is because Sig Sauer is sooooooo mainstream.
It was a mistake, no one died. Get to the root of the problem quickly, make sure it doesn’t happen again and everyone can move on with their lives. Despite the fact they mention Amazon.com over and over, the exchange of money was only taken care of by Amazon, and they had nothing to do with the TV/rifle mix-up.
I’m just surprised the hipster wasn’t thrown in jail, seeing as this happened in D.C. and all.
Statement from Caroline Brewer, Spokesperson for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence:
Clearly, it’s a dangerous situation in America when assault weapons are so prevalent and can so easily end up in the wrong hands, especially given that the rifle was left on the doorstep. Thank goodness, Mr. Horvitz and his wife alerted the Metropolitan police right away. This mishap could have led to another tragedy.
LOL Brady Campaign… their statements are so predictably hilarious. It’s sure lucky the hipster and his wife did alert the police so quickly because those assault rifles get antsy when they are in their boxes too long, and when they get antsy they start killin things!
