Yeah. Good samaritan laws. Vary by state. Don't kill people.

I wasn’t planning on it lol I was having a conversation with a friend about this stuff and google wasn’t helping me find anything.

Not really. You may not be charged with a crime depending on the location, but you can be sued for damages.

I don’t know but if your aim is bad enough where you can kill someone else then you shouldn’t be carrying a gun on you to begin with

People don’t have aim bots in real life, no matter how skilled you are with a gun you can still miss. I think people should get training before owning a gun but with current material conditions that doesn’t happen. This is also a hypothetical situation, I just wanted to know if there’s a law in place for this stuff.
