    Sadly he did the only thing he could do: turn it over to the cops. If he had dared try to keep it or transport and been discovered, he'd be in deep kimchee indeed.

    As for the guy in shipping, he's one of those Obama supporters that's out looking for a job right now. Amazon has had some interesting issues with their work force, with staff complaining about conditions that more closely resemble a sweat shop than a shipping and receiving operation. Would love to find if this guy did this on purpose, and then be able to slip him a few bucks to make another mistake ..... I can supply the address.

    one question...in the article it says its illegal to cross firearms across state lines. so are they going to press charges against the specific postal carriers who delivered?

    Anyone here smell a rat? I think there is more to this than UPS screwing up.

    Yes, Amazon doesn't sell real firearms.

    The last 3 things I ordered from Amazon's site were not shipped by Amazon. They have vendors, and the vendors ship what you order. Kind of like ebay.

    I wonder if it was a drop shipment. Fake credit card, fake address and the folks wait to pick it up?

    It sounds like Amazon got his name screwed up with another order,it says the gun was supposed to ship to a gun shop in Pennsylvania,the FFL sent it directly to an Individual not an FFL and in a State that has banned Civilian ownership,I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that the FFL won't have his license much longer and may even be looking at federal charges

    If Amazon would do that for me just once I'd stop complaining about my Prime subscription and renew for life.

    So that's what happened to my AR!! j/k

    I have a feeling the seller is definitely hear about it. Not only is he out the cost of the gun, but I have a feeling he'll have some hefty legal fees to take care of as well.

    Mr. Horvitz should have kept his mouth shut and kept the rifle.
