Redditors threaten to show up to Coinbase headquarters with guns

Well this is frightening. 
Reacting to the news that Coinbase account holders had been mistakenly overcharged (in some cases, thousands of dollars), one individual took to Reddit to suggest a troubling solution: Show up at the cryptocurrency exchange's headquarters with guns. And the person was initially met with at least some support. 
The thread has since been locked from comments by Reddit — with some commenters claiming to have reported the threats to law enforcement — but it's still available to the public. Even as Reddit's own policies appear to prohibit violent content.
