Out of Control

The tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado last month and this month's attack at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin brought the nation's discussion about gun control even more into the foreground. Yes, I know, we have a constitutional right to bear arms, but there needs to be some control on this. And while the comedian Eddie Izzard is correct in saying that "Guns don't kill people. People kill people. But the guns help." I do think that we need to look at how readily available weapons are on the internet. Example: This week, Seth Horvitz in Washington DC ordered a 39-inch television from a third-party seller on When the box arrived in the mail he opened it and found a Sig Sauer military-style assault rifle instead of his TV. Seriously.
Don't you just hate when you order something online and they send you a gun instead? That's the worst!
Horvitz contacted the police immediately and said that he obviously contacted Amazon as well and the company’s customer service department gave him “the standard line of sending a dispute claim for sending the wrong product." So helpful Amazon. I'm sure this poor man is just anxious to watch Honey Boo Boo in HD on his new flat screen.
