My reaction?

Well, sure, I mean:

If someone doesn't get their Uber Grande Triple Mocha Espresso with Caramel Monkeybutt Sauce and Cupid's Arrow and Heart Design in their Whipped Cream just right, then, in 'Merica, that customer should have the right to pump a couple of magazines of steel-jacketed rounds and dum-dums into the bastard barista who ruined their day, week, and life, right?

Goddam right, boys and girls.

Next, we'll pick up that NRA-backed class project, writing to our representatives to keep the Second Amendment -- well, the first part of it anyway -- holy and carved in stone.

Perhaps "this thing" is any number of situations suffering slashed budgets during the Great Recession, and before -- all the way back to then-Governor Reagan turning out the mentally ill into the streets.
