 A motorcade and rifle but this wasn’t Dallas

Two men, brothers-in-law aged 20 and 16, were taken into custody. The report continued, “A .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle and a full box of .22 long rifle ammunition was seized.” Both men admitted “pointing the gun out the window on the parade route.”

The origins of Mannlicher-Carcano bullets

Mannlicher Carcano, JFK, rifle

Where did the bullets come from?

An intriguing tidbit from a faithful reader about the bullet that allegedly killed President Kennedy.

“Recently, I was reading the post CSI JFK: The Chain of Custody for “the magic bullet.” Bob Prudhomme posted a reference to “frangible range bullet for the Mannlicher-Carcano.” I didn’t know what that meant. I had to look it up. In doing so, I stumbled across a Web site about the ammunition (not the rifle).
Scroll down to the heading- “Non-Italian Military Rounds.”
It says:

NRA denies licensing a JFK commemorative rifle

Let’s commemorate the murder of a president with few rounds of friendly fire.

A Colorado company, American Legacy Firearms is selling a limited edition “Dallas Heritage Rifle,” engraved with a picture of the Kennedy Memorial in Dallas, according to Dallas TV station WFAA.

A red, white and blue NRA sticker on a flier for the fully functional Mossberg .30-30 rifle describes the firearm as an “official NRA licensed product.”

But Jacqueline Otto, of NRA public affairs, said via email that the JFK commemorative rifle “is not an NRA licensed product.”

Licensing is a big business for the gun group. In 2011, the NRA took in $122 million in “program service income,” more than double the $59 million it received in grants and contributions, according to an IRS filing.

President Kennedy was killed by rifle fire on November 22, 1963, as his motorcade passed through downtown Dallas. This November will mark the 50th anniversary of the crime whose causes remain in dispute.

Bad taste?

A WFAA reader survey is finding that 54 percent or respondent agree the JFK memorial rifle is inappropriate. Another 46 percent of respondents think it is not inappropriate.

Stephen Hunter, gun expert and author of “The Third Bullet,”a fictional thriller about JFK’s assassination, says, commemorative guns “are a species of firearm kitsch which appeals to some people. I am not one of them. I find it somewhat grotesque but hardly offensive. It’s really just silly.”

For gun fans, says Hunter, “the associations with the lever action .30-30 are quite positive and patriotic, because of the iconographic usage in western movies and the long hunting heritage.”

As a practical matter, he said the Mossberg is “slow moving and old fashioned,” more ubiquitous in cowboy movies than in real life.

The official story is the JFK was killed on November 22, 1963, by a gunshot from Mannlicher-Carcano, a cheap and relatively inaccurate firearm, a hypothesis Hunter finds implausible.

In “The Third Bullet,” Hunter suggests that Kennedy was killed by a shot from a .264 Winchester Magnum, a more powerful and accurate weapon than either the .30-30, or the Mannlicher-Carcano.



“Stephen Hunter goes ballistic. ‘The Third Bullet’ rethinks the JFK story,” (JFK Facts, April 17 2013)








Nov 22 1963: Kennedy gunned down in Dallas

The iconic “six seconds in Dallas” that one year from today will be 50 years old. The aftermath of national shock was quickly followed by the expanding Vietnam War and its protests, the “sixties”, race riots, and more murders of political leaders.

These 350 books and many more later, what really happened?

Not in dispute that day is the basic chronology: shots fired in Dealey Plaza which hit JFK and Governor Connally, frantic treatment at Parkland Hospital where the President was pronounced dead, the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald an hour and a half after the shooting, not long after the murder of police officer Tippit, Air Force I racing to DC with the new President Johnson and the body of the dead president, Oswald’s protest of “I’m a patsy!” shouted to the crowd of reporters who had descended upon the Dallas Police station.

So much else remains in dispute. The reconstruction of the crime scene – how many shots from where by whom. The role of Oswald – lone gunman, conspirator, patsy. Psychopath or government agent. Read more
