I'm not taking sides, but I have a lot of questions; Mainly why is Jackie seen scrambling over the trunk area of the limo after the shooting?

I have a Mannlicher Caranco 91/38, not a bad little rifle, but I can't see anyone using a scope could get off three rounds at a moving target.

Oswald was a Marine and if you know USMC training, it's indoctrination that the Marine and his rifle are a unit .. a combined killing machine.

I suspect Oswald would have been happier with an M-1 than with a cheap import. Or even a Star Gaugae '03 Springfield if he could afford one

On the other hand, I can't see Bobby K. just letting go of his brother being killed.

That's simply not in our Irish nature.

The Warren Report? A lot of garbage and filler (Dental records? lol)

1. Why would a scope make an difference on the number of rounds you could get off?

2. The "target' was not a deer bounding through the woods. It was slow moving in nearly prefect alignment with the line of fire.

Visit the School Book Depository some time. You can stand there in the 6th floor and look out from the window directly next to the one Oswald fired from. I don't claim to be a great marksman, but I could have hit that target 2 out of 3 and in fact, the angel and distances have been recreated many times and even average marksmen have done it.

Because she'd just seen he husband's head explode while she was staring straight into his eyes from almost nose to nose distance?

I do not have one, so I cannot test how quickly one could shoot it. But remember that the first shot would already have chambered.

I do not know how well Oswald's Marine indoctrination went. He fit the classic loner-chip-on-his-shoulder mentality, so I doubt he was a good Marine.
