Mistaken Rifle Delivery Panics Some, but Highlights Real Problems for Gun Owners
A recent news story from Washington, D.C. highlights just how irrational anti-gun advocates can be about firearms.
A SIG semi-automatic rifle was mistakenly delivered to an address in the nation’s capital. It was intended for a gun store in Pennsylvania, but appears to have been accidentally re-labeled in transit.
Upon opening the box, the recipient decided to take a picture of himself smiling as he stood over the rifle, though he later told a public radio reporter he was “shocked” to have the rifle in his kitchen. Of course, the unloaded rifle posed no threat, as no ammunition was on hand or even available to purchase in D.C.
