Carry Permit Holder Saves Wife, Self

posted on October 13, 2016

A Minnesota man and his wife are safe following a scare in a Wal-Mart parking lot, thanks to the man’s concealed firearm and his knowledge of how and when to use it.

According to local media reports, the man and his wife were walking through a Wal-Mart parking lot in St. Cloud, Minn., last Wednesday night when a man approached them with a baseball bat and asked them if they had “ever been hit in the head with a bat.”

The couple ignored him and continued toward their vehicle, but then heard the suspect take a deep breath. Turning and seeing the assailant with his bat raised to strike, the man pulled his concealed handgun, prompting the wannabe attacker to drop the bat and run away. Police later arrested 30-year-old Phillip Keys on suspicion of second-degree assault.
