"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."

Yes, I was thinking of Dean Wormer in Animal House when I saw this news story from the March 19, 2014 Orlando Sentinel:
According to the Sheriff's Office, Noble, 37, left the Europa Lounge at some point in the evening, only to return later dressed like Rambo, the movie character played by Sylvester Stallone. He was armed with what the Sheriff's Office described as an "Uzi-style assault rifle" and a pair of hunting knives.
Shortly after 11 p.m., Noble challenged several patrons inside the lounge, which is located in the European Village resort, according to the Sheriff's Office. Two patrons stopped Noble and grabbed the barrel of the gun, and one or two shots were fired into the floor.
The men got the gun away from Noble, but he lashed out with one of the knives, the Sheriff's Office said. The men wrestled Noble to the ground and knocked him unconscious, but not before of them suffered knife wounds.
A gun is not a substitute for a working brain.

Fortunately Noble thought the rifle would be a magic wand.
Doubly fortunately patrons disarmed him.

"Uzi-style assault rifle"?

Since when is an Uzi any kind of rifle? It's a submachine gun with a 10" barrel.
