People v. Vallejo (Cal. Ct. App. - March 21, 2013)

It's not improper for a prosecutor to assert (in closing argument and elsewhere) that the defendant "brought a gun to a fistfight" when the defendant essentially did, in fact, bring a gun to a fistfight.

So holds the Court of Appeal.

Referencing famous movie lines: Not just for outside the courtroom.
