Lets say a man points a gun at someone's head with the intent of killing that person. Pulls the trigger, but for some reason the gun doesn't work.
His action would in this case have been the same whether the gun worked or not. So shouldn't attempted murder be judged just as severe as murder?
Should a person be judged by the result of the person's actions, or the intent of the person's action?
