So let's say you buy a gun. It's yours... Can you go out and start shooting people just because you own the gun?

Yes you could and you won't go to jail because you violated the Eula that came with the gun, I'm pretty sure they don't have one. You will go to jail for shooting people. So really your example is more like buying a Mac and then using it for identity theft. You've bought something and decided to break laws with it, the Eula however doesn't prohibit you from braking these laws so your example is invalid.
