    Interesting observation at a restaurant last night.

    My wife and daughter took me to The Old Spaghetti Factory in Minneapolis last night for my birthday. They have a waiting area with some high back chairs and couches to sit on and several very large windows looking out onto Washington Ave. The room is above street level. Well I’m looking out one of the windows when I look up, about 7 feet up I would say, and there I see two bullet holes.
    This is very thick glass and one had gone all the way through and the other had broken through but did not have as wide a hole so I am guessing the bullet perhaps had split apart.
    The angle was in an upward direction as if someone was on the street or sidewalk and took a couple shots at the window.
    I pointed this out to my wife and daughter. They just shook their heads in disbelief.

    It was very good and I didn't have to duck for cover anytime during the meal. Seriously I have been to that restaurant many times and have never encountered trouble but of course I am packing and watching all the time anyway.

    I'm nervous in restaurants, always ccw and watching.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    We weren't sitting there to eat. In fact we were nowhere near a window while we ate.
