Defense of others, legality thereof
In about a month I'll receive my permit and start carrying here in MS. In the copy of the laws regulating the concealed carrying of firearms I haven't seen anything regarding using it in defense of some other than the permit holder.
For instance, if I'm walking to my vehicle in a parking garage and happen upon a mugging or assault, do I have the legal duty and/or authority (moral obligation notwithstanding) to use force up to and including lethal, in defense of the victim? Would that be protected under "good Samaritan" laws or would the use of a firearm take it into another realm.
