Or something like that.
"An attorney walks into a movie theater with a gun...." Sounds like the opening of a joke? Probably more like a set-up for a lawsuit. It happened in new Haven, CT; the lawyer in question is reportedly president of the county bar association, has a valid carry permit and said he was concerned about his safety going home from the late-night film.
I expressed worry about the short-term world of hurt Sung H. Hwang had let himself in for while lawyering his way up through the court system (assuming the prosecutor is so rash as to file charges); Tam pointed out "What you call Hell, he calls home." Good point, and to drive it home, it's reported that he's an immigration attorney, so he's got plenty of experience with a byzantine and somewhat hostile bureaucracy -- and presumably, the patience of Job.
