OP, I would have been highly upset. That sucks.
In Pennsylvania a "sawed off shot gun" is considered a POW or Prohibited Offensive Weapon. It is a weapon that serves no other purpose but to inflict serious bodily injury. I would say you should report what happened. It is not funny. I am sure your state will have similar laws. I wish you well.
