Death is a natural thing; it happens all the time in nature. It is part of the natural order, so much so that it's built into our genes.
Laws do not invite killing. Killing occurs because there is conflict. Conflict occurs because different people have different ideas about what is considered civil behavior. Murder occurs because killing under certain circumstances violates our particular moral code.
In modern societies, laws exist to protect one person from violating another person's ability to make their own choices. Killing someone robs them of their ability to make any choices, at least in this physical life. So if that killing is justified, it has to be because the person gave their life to protect their own beliefs.
In other words, soldiers die in war because they have chosen to fight.
As far as passing a law that says "Love your neighbor as yourself," we don't pass such laws because we allow people (at least in the United States) to pursue their own path of happiness as long as it doesn't interfere with someone else's, and requiring people to love each other would infringe on everyone's absolute right to feel miserable, if they so choose.
The law went into affect after the event(s) took place. Originally, there was no law, nor a need for such a law. In our presently cathartic condition, we are able to manipulate anything as long as the idea exists. When the idea of murder entered into the world so did the idea of a law and at any given point thereafter, this process may reverse.

The Law Commandment of God, "Do not kill" can't be any plainer to understand we should not kill anyone. Well except if it is a war that is different and even God understands that as even in the Bible there were many necessary wars. But other than that it says, "Thou shall not kill."
God made the commandments plain and simple easy to follow and understand not full of legal jargon like there would be today filled with loop holes and articles see section 537 B part 12 of article 472 on Thou shall not kill.
God made it simple with no exceptions straight forward easy to follow.
