Good Samaritans Save Woman, Baby From Parking Lot Attack Outside Walmart

You can never be too careful when you are out in public these days.

We have the second amendment to the constitution that says we can carry a gun.

More and more, we are seeing how that right can come in handy.

Thieves and bad guys have guns, so as a law-abiding citizen, we should probably carry them too – so we can protect ourselves and one another!

A mother and baby were attacked in the parking lot of a Walmart in Shawnee, Kansas and it soon turned deadly.

The mother was in critical condition when she arrived at the hospital.

Police arrested Fred Wyatt II, 27, and charge him with attempted first-degree murder, attempted aggravated robbery, and attempted aggravated kidnapping.

According to reports (eyewitnesses and CCTV video), Wyatt and his accomplice had waited in a maroon can for nearly 90 minutes for the woman and her 8-month old baby to come out of the store.
