27. Have you ever read the Warren Commission Report?

Apparently not, because all of the evidence - and there is a mountain of evidence - presented in that report answers these oft-asked questions. You'd think that after 60 years, people would consult that report, rather than dismissing it out of hand.

To answer your question:

1. Oswald practiced with the rifle he used to kill JFK, as testified by his wife, who was the one who took the pictures of him holding the rifle

2. Oswald achieved the rank of sharpshooter in the USMC, higher than a Marksman but not an expert. The kill shot at 80 yards would have been easy for a shooter of his skill. He was able to score a 48 out of 50 on shots fired at targets at 200 yards while in the USMC. The USMC testified to the WC that he was an above-average shooter when compared to USMC norms and an expert shooter when compared to Joe Public.

3. Expert shooters employed by the Warren Commission were able to duplicate Oswald's three shots with accuracy in as little as 4.6 seconds, using Oswald's own rifle, misaligned scope and all

4. Balistics tests to the recovered bullet and fragments matched Oswald's rifle to the exclusion of every other firearm in the world.

5. The so-called pristine bullet that was found on the stretcher at Parkland hospital matched Oswald's rifle through ballistics tests and came from a lot of bullets manufactured by the Western Cartridge Company that Oswald had purchased through mail order.

6. The rifle Oswald purchased from a firm in Chicago was traced to him via sales records within 24 hours of the shootings.

7. The so-called magic bullet wasn't magic at all. It performed as any fully jacketed round would behave. Its trajectory was a relatively straight line that went through JFK and Connelly. It did not stop and turn midair as asserted in Oliver Stone's ridiculous fiction.

There's so much evidence to support Oswald as the lone gunman. Read Bugliosi's *Reclaiming History.*
