If a person shoots at someone's upper body, hits them in the heart and they die, and someone shoots at someone's upper body, hits them in the chest, and they live , why should the person who killed someone get a bigger consequence than the one who injured? They both had the same intent, it was just by chance that the bullet didn't hit the surviving person's chest. Surely they should both get the same punishment?

There is some truth to the argument that if someone shoots someone in the chest and they survive there should be the same consequence as killing them, however they didn't KILL them they just hurt him. If you beat someone at school during your childhood would you get sent to jail for life, no! Trust me when I was a Kid I got beat A LOT! See What I Mean.

define what murder is
define what attempted murder is

what if someone changes their mind and doesn't want to kill them but was nearly about to? is that attempted murder?

at what moment does attempted murder stop being attempted murder

at what moment is murder, murder?

at what moment does something become attempted murder?

at what moment does something become murder?

if I killed someone on accident but then I found out they slept with my wife or something, and I am then happy I killed them, is that murder?

be more specific, your argument is too exclusive. you could hold on to anything if your losing and lie your way out of a losing debate with logical fallacy due to a lack of diversity within your 1 sided argument that would win 90% of the time
