KANSAS- A mother walks out of Walmart with her infant around 1:30 p.m. Something many of us do many times a month if not many times a week. What suddenly happened to her was completely unexpected but luckily there were 2 good armed citizens who came to her dramatic rescue.
The police said that while the woman was putting her baby into the child seat, two men walked up to her and started hitting her. Luckily, a man got out of his car to help her and was shot by the attackers a couple of times. THEN another man got out of his car, this time ready for a showdown and shot one of the attackers in the head. The other attacker wisely ran away and is still at large.
The first good Samaritan was listed in critical condition and had surgery on Sunday. While his name is not being released he is identified as a 33-yr-old Kansas City, Missouri resident. The woman was also listed as critical for her injuries but has since been given release from the hospital to go home.
“You know our hearts and prayers go out to both of them for a speedy recovery. I know we have many people out right now, many teams of officers and detectives. We had to make contact with the family of good Samaritan number one to get them to the hospital to be with him, but apparently good Samaritan number one is able to talk,” said Maj. Dan Tennis, of the Shawnee Police Department.
I hate to push the Second Amendment but understand the right to be armed is a CIVIL RIGHT. It’s an inalienable right! You were born with that right. If this second good Samaritan hadn’t practiced his right and carried a weapon, this woman and her baby and the first good Samaritan might be dead. If you don’t practice your Second Amendment right, remember, one day you might lose it.
The attacker who was killed is now being identified as John W. Simmons III… a very long prestigious name for a really dumb criminal.
