This is the type of situation that I'd never really considered. Suppose the firearm belonged to an individual who was attacking a felon. Would the felon still be in hot water if he disarmed the attacker and defended himself with the same firearm? I know that by the letter of the law he probably would be. But does that mean the felon has to just accept being killed to stay within the law? Doesn't seem right, but logic is not a factor in the legal system.
