It would be a very serious offense to point out the gun it considers attempt to the criminal offense and punishable in the court. The punishment for an attempt is to commit a crime for an offense. If there is any sufficient evidence then jury need to determine the them and if it is not relevant then it will be withdrawn. This section applies if any person is committing any offense which creates a criminal offense. To establishment the statue there should be Mens Rea of a person that was so essential.
