On Wednesday, November 7, the National Rifle Association, the largest and most influential gun-rights advocacy group in the U.S., wrote derisively about doctors in a defensive tweet. Speaking out against physicians who treat gun wounds and subsequently call for increased gun control, the NRA wrote: "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane."

At the end of the day, Twitter users seemed to realize whose lane was whose.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
