    Very well posed topic here.
    Technically of course, you would have to commit a murder in order to be a murderer. Some would go so far as to say that you would need to be convicted of the crime to be labelled as a murderer.

    Let's face it though, we are all murderers because we are all able to. Even someone like Stephen Hawking could murder someone by putting out a contract.

    The only people not really capable of murder would be an infant. 

    What gets my goat is when you hear the expression, "He/she would not even harm a fly, so there is no way that he/she killed that person". 
    You couldn't put it past anyone to commit murder whether you want to believe they could or not.
