What I find interesting and casts a shadow on the official story isn't the assassination of JFK but that of Jack Ruby/stien.  Police first said that they thought that Jack Ruby was just another cia agent or secret service agent. They then state that many recognized Jack as a local well known strip club owner in Dallas well known to the police and that they did nothing to question his presence where Oswald got shot. Jack well known to police a strip club owner saddened to the point of murder over JFK, I don't think so. Oswalds death was a hit that was allowed to happen.

The carcano is a pretty accurate rifle. Even using nothing but iron sights.

I'm just saying.

It was three shots, as I recall. The first one missed completely, the second one hit Kennedy and Connely, and the third hit Kennedy in the head. So, two misses and one hit. Does it take a military-level sniper to do this?

Have any proof that this gun was "terrible"?

Actually, the gun was a pretty decent rifle and Oswald was a very good marksman.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

That Carcano didn't blow the Presidents brains out, Don't have to be Einstien to work that out. A person with Military experience would unlikely choose a Carcano, especially when its sights weren't even sighted correctly.Oswald may have fired a shot to distract attention away from the Kill Shot

Yup Oswald was not only experienced, but tried to assassinate a US general before !

Nope.

Oswalds military marksmanship records

He was rated a Marksman on one course, and a Sharpshooter on another.

He was definitely not a an expert shot, but he was above average by military standards, which would be a far sight above "average joe" standards.

No matter what Oliver Stove would have us believe to sell movie tickets.

Alright, so he may have been a good shooter. Still, unless he could change the laws of physics, I would loved to see how he pulled off the killing shot. Because i'm sure the army would love a way to make bullets do 180 degree turns in mid air...
