I am sure Ben had a gun as well.  I would think that when Alex gave Locke a gun, she knew that Ben was jealous of Locke's connection to the island and hoped he would kill Ben.  Just my thought.

Ben snatched Locke's gun imho.

Ben reaimed the gun when he thought Locke was asking him to "help me" as if he would REALLY kill Locke if he didn't answer.  He wounded Locke to let The Island decide his fate.

He is afraid of anyone else who gets instructions from Jacob "The Wizard".
Question: if Ben snatched Locke's gun, did Alex contribute to Locke's shooting and possible death?

SO CAN BEN HEAR JACOB? WAS HIS WHOLE ARGUMENT WITH HIM FAKE? THAT WOULD MAKE SENSE WHY BEN WAS SO SURPRISED THAT LOCKE COULD HEAR HIM. BUT IF BEN CAN'T HEAR HIM, HOW DOES HE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIM??? ??? ???

Speaking back story wise, we know everything we needed to know about Locke. When a character has no more back story to tell on Lost, they usually kill that character off. :(
II hope Im wrong.

Running out of backstory would be an extremely stupid reason to kill off a character... what character DOES have remaining backstory?  I personally don't care about backstories... I bet Locke is alive and will survive.  Ben could've finished him off with one more bullet.  Did anyone else think Locke would simply say "Help me" again and Ben would fire one more shot to finish him off?  I was glad when Locke was smart and took the time to say TWO extra words.

Libby had a pretty vague backstory and she is still dead.  Yes, I think Locke will survive... and I agree that Ben didn't kill him because of what Jacob said to Locke.

Anger management people:  He's gonna die.....

Remember what Eko said;  "We're Next!" 

So, Nikki & Paulo.  And now Locke!!!!!!!!!

Personally, I'm not that worried that Locke is actually dead. i can see him re-emerging in the season finale with some story about how he whittled the bullet out of his chest with his knife.  then he'll go ape on Ben.

I don't think that there's no more back story to tell, I think they will keep him around because they have invested in so much back story with Locke. There's got to be more for John on the island. It only makes sense IMHO.

Thats true, he hasn't accomplished much for the MAIN story of the show, that being the island. I believe his quick healing abilities will... heal him. If the the bullet isnt in him. I agree with the people who said that he isnt dead till theirs proof we see him as a corps or something like that. Look at Mikhail as an example.

That's just TPTB showing you what happens to a character that asks too many questions...

Lots of posts saying, "why don't they ask more questions?", "I would hold him down and force it out of him".  We want to know why the Losties don't ask more questions - TPTB had a little fun at our expense.
