-Fear Mongers Activate over Concealed Carry Permits


Photobucket 
By HarryUSA

      In response to the Illinois State police mailing out thousands of concealed carry permits last month, Chicago Police Superintendent, Gary McCarthy issued the usual anti-gun fear speech on ABC News.

“There are going to be confrontation situations. We’re hearing stories across the country about people getting shot over ‘thug music,’ right? Or somebody throwing popcorn in a movie theater,” he said. “These things are going to come, as sure as we’re standing here.”


     The same argument could be issued over the sale of cars in Illinois. "There's going to be drunk driving. People are going to speed and hit children crossing the road. No one will be safe!"


     Without digging up all of the usual boring statistics, we can use our common knowledge and ask a few simple questions to determine if trained people carrying guns are a safety risk to our families.


     Wisconsin was the 49th state to enact concealed carry legislation back in July of 2011. Since then how many mass shootings have happened in Wisconsin? How many people have been gunned down by wild-eyed concealed carry permit holders?


     Hundreds of applicants have been denied permits and several hundred permit holders have had their permits revoked; but for non-violent reasons.


     You can Google search all you want, and you won't find an epidemic of mass shootings in Wisconsin or in any other state by concealed carry permit holders. You will find mass shootings performed by psychos, but your chances of getting shot by a concealed carry permit holder in Wisconsin or anywhere else is like getting stampeded after a Green Bay Packers game. It's unheard of.


     Since 2004, there have been several mass shootings in Wisconsin, none of which were the fault of concealed carry permit holders in that state because the shootings happened before Wisconsin allowed concealed carry for civilians.


     In 2004, Chai Vang was sentenced to life in prison for killing eight people while deer hunting.  In 2007, Ambrosio Analco murdered six people including his infant sons.


     Although these acts of violence are reprehensible, and there were more, however they all happened before concealed carry was enacted. Proving that if someone wishes to commit a crime with a weapon, permit or not, there is not much anyone can do about it unless someone there is armed to stop it.


     In 2007 Jeanne Assam blew away Matthew Murray after he killed sixteen-year-old Rachael Works and her eighteen-year-old sister Stephanie Works in a Colorado New Life Church parking lot. Their father David Works was fifty-one at the time and he survived his injuries.

                     Jeanne Assam [http://www.theage.com.au]
 
     Jeanne Assam had worked as a police officer in another state and was currently working as a security guard at the church armed with a pistol and a concealed carry permit. Her actions saved the lives of countless people. This proves that the only way to stop a retrograde with a gun is a good guy with a gun using it in accordance with the law.


     Gang violence has nothing to do with concealed carry permits. You don't need a concealed carry permit to do a drive-by only to ditch the weapon afterwards to avoid getting pinched for the crime.


     The City of Chicago uses firearms as scape-goats to avoid the fundamental issues that plague the city. Chicago like Los Angeles has armies of street gangs that are their primary source of violence.


     The drug money in Chicago that fuels gangs violence circulates like a green tornado, while the Chicago political, police, and media propagandists keep the focus on guns and not poverty; the root source of gang violence.


     How many Chicago Police have to be stung by the FBI before it becomes clear as to who is pocketing some of the green tornado as well as the defense attorneys that represent Chicago area drug dealers?


     We don't live in a perfect world. Some permit holders will screw up and cause problems. The first person in Illinois history to have his permit revoked was fifty-four year old William P. O'Connell who has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for pulling a gun out during an argument over rent money.


     But since Gary McCarthy cast his shadow of doom over CCW on ABC noise in March, earlier this month, a fifty-three year old Austin man had a gun pointed at him by one of two scabies wearing hoodies. This concealed carry permit holder drew his weapon and shot at them. The two miscreants fled for their miserable lives sparing the concealed carry permit holder his life in the process.


     Time will tell, but we are more likely to read about concealed carry permit holders defending themselves with a firearm rather than crimes committed by the same. If CCW was a bad idea, if it was such a disaster nationwide, then why haven't other states repealed their CCW laws? Where is the data to show that CCW permit holders go on nationwide shooting sprees and are a threat to our families?

-Belle Knox, A Feminist in the Porn Business




Photobucket
HarryUSA

It has been around seven months since pro-porn feminist crusader Belle Knox entered the sex industry and began making X-rated videos for producers like Adam & Eve, Facial Abuse, Babes, Teen Fidelity, and Reality Kings.     

           Unlike most sex-based performers who simply blend into the background of a multi-billion dollar male dominated sex-trade, Knox, an outspoken Duke University student who has received viral international media attention via outlets like CNN and the BBC, claims to be a feminist sex worker. 

           
             photo belle-knox1_zps276ea032.jpg
                  Belle Knox  [Retrieved from bossip.com]

In a recent interview with Time she said, “Feminism means I can take ownership of what I enjoy sexually and that sexuality does not have to determine anything else about me. You might. But I will not...feminism is not a one size fits all movement.”

Her views contrast the views of Gloria Steinem and Andrea Dworkin who have, in the past, written that porn is violent and it promotes the subjugation of women. Although Steinem in a Huffington post interview has stated that “Porn means female slavery. Erotica is something quite different. Eros means love and free choice.” Yet Steinem has not shown where the line between porn and erotica is to be drawn. 


 photo 65e1ef72-0a07-494e-8d2b-f9e900344881_zpsa202e0d0.jpg      photo dworkin-podium_zps9c9d9dd6.jpg
 Gloria Steinem [biography.com]                              Andrea Dworkin [andreadworkin.com]

In Dworkin’s book “Men Possessing Women,” she writes about a thirteen year old girl that was forced into prostitution where the pimps and customers made pornographic images of her. Dworkin saw porn as a weapon used by men to dominate and destroy women. But is it fair to say that all women in the porn business were forced in front of the camera by pimps? 

Although Knox seems to be agreeing with Steinem and Dworkin in an interview she did with the BBC. In the interview, Knox identified with the plight of other sex workers by stating that although millions of people consume porn, “Yet no one is willing to consider the lives of the people behind the camera. No one wants to hear about the abuses and exploitation that take place, no one wants to hear about the violence committed every day against sex workers, no one wants to consider that we have hopes and dreams and ambitions.” In the same article, she claims she entered the porn industry to pay her annual $60,000 tuition at Duke.

Knox is not the only porn star to make a big splash from the porn industry and into the international spotlight. In 1972 Linda Lovelace starred in a low budget stag movie called “Deep Throat.” Whenever interviewed about the movie, Lovelace claimed that she was forced into prostitution and pornography which included a few films of her having sex with a dog. When referring to her stint in the movie Deep Throat, Lovelace expressed her bitter feelings by saying, “When you see the movie ‘Deep Throat,’ you are watching me being raped…They made a few bucks off me, just like everybody else.”

 Linda Lovelace [blog.wsj.com]                              XXX Movie Deep Throat 1972

In 1974 she made Deep Throat II. Lovelace died in a car crash back in 2002. 

The 1980’s saw the rise of another troubled porn star named Shauna Grant who was a na├»ve small town girl from Minnesota who made many adult movies produced by land sharks like coke-head Bobby Hollander. Grant committed suicide after contracting herpes, having an abortion, using Cocaine with her producer Hollander, and experiencing an estranged relationship with her live in boyfriend.

Like other porn stars of the past with troubles, Knox has admitted to cutting her left thigh because she was unhappy with her weight. She revealed the story behind the scars on her leg when Facial Abuse’s Jimmy Hooligan asked her about the cuts right before she was slapped, choked, and spit on during one of his productions on a website he runs called Facial Abuse. 

What could be more symptomatic of a girl in trouble but one who is explaining to an abusive pornographer how she abused herself because of the way she felt about her self-image? Her scars can easily be seen in her videos and still shoots. 

Despite her troubled past, Belle Knox has managed to appear on the View, Howard Stern, and other television programs where she explained her dive into the sex industry where she is in the forefront because of her outspokenness.

Knox claims that she wants to graduate from Duke University and then go on to law school to become an attorney. What firm could she work for considering her X-rated past? This is questionable unless she starts her own business. Law firms would probably avoid hiring her because it would cause juries to discount her credibility. 

Another problem she may not have anticipated is the fact that porn stars have short careers. How can she maintain her stardom long enough to make it through four years of college and three years of law school? In that seven year period she would have to have sex with several hundred people, risk STD’s, and over exposure which could lower her take home pay.

On the other hand, if Knox is fortunate enough, she could land higher salaries for her work because of her popularity and eventually get out of the sex industry as eighties porn star Traci Lords did and continue on outside of the porn business.

How Belle Knox’s career develops in the long run is anyone’s guess. Yet no one can deny that she is a troubled young lady who is articulate, ambitious, attractive, popular, and wealthy perhaps, yet headed down a very dangerous path as so many have trekked before her with cataclysmic results.

-It's time for Angela Corey to step down

      Photobucket
       HarryUSA

Just when you thought it was safe to return to the village, the prosecutorial monster from Florida’s fourth judicial court has, like Beowulf's nemesis Grendel, just raised her head from the murky waters that she travels in and has returned from her cesspool to terrorize the locals by overcharging defendants in highly politicized cases.

        Florida States Atty: Angela Corey [National Review Photo]

     
Angela Corey was appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott to lead the prosecution of George Zimmerman as a result of political pressure he experienced back in 2012 when Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, a violent teenager who attacked him.

     Black activists, anti-gun, anti-stand-your-ground, and anti-NRA advocates swarmed the press and governor’s office demanding that Zimmerman be prosecuted for shooting an unarmed teenager who had been previously suspended from school for fighting.

 photo govrickscottfloridaflgov_zps3245183a.jpg
                                   Florida Gov. Rick Scott [flagov photo]

     Martin also had a penchant for photography. There was a photograph on his cell phone of a young man’s hand, probably Martin’s, holding a semi-auto pistol over a stained mattress.

     Countless implications could be drawn from that photo alone considering Martin’s lack of character. Yet it was Zimmerman that was pegged as a racist for shooting the violent teenager in self-defense.

     Angela Corey’s attempt to charge Zimmerman with second-degree murder was laughable since second-degree murder is not a description for what happened in the altercation between Zimmerman and Martin. Yet Corey pushed for a second-degree conviction and lost miserably to an all female jury before an audience of millions that watched the trial live on television.

     Zimmerman was ultimately acquitted in court and branded as a racist by Oprah Winfrey and others. Despite his character being assassinated by numerous talking heads on television, Zimmerman recently sold one of his paintings for over $100,000 and has recently painted a picture of Angela Corey stating that she has “this much respect for the American Judicial System.” The painting shows her fingers pinched together.

     After losing so miserably before the eyes of millions of people on national television, one would think that Angela Corey would be more careful the next time a highly publicized case came around.

                                              Jordan Davis [ezkool photo]

     Back in November 2012, a white male, Michael Dunn, confronted a group of black youths who were playing loud music in their car by a gas station. There was a negative verbal exchange, then moments later Dunn fired into their car killing Jordan Davis and wounding several others.

     The killing of Davis was a clear case of second-degree murder or less. To qualify for a second-degree murder charge in Florida, the prosecutor has to prove that the “defendant acted according to a ‘depraved mind’ without regard for human life.” Second-degree murder does not require a prosecutor to prove premeditation.

 photo michael-dunnerockfordblog_zps5448cd2b.jpg
                                               Michael Dunn [erockfordblog]

     But after the state lost its attempt to convict Dunn on a first degree murder charge, despite the fact that there was no premeditative element involved, the jury convicted him on several attempted murder charges where Dunn shot and wounded Davis’ friends.

     Outrage spilled out from the anti-gun, anti-stand-your-ground propagandists. Once again, emotion was ruling the day and the cameras were rolling. Logic dictates that if Dunn just met Davis, then there was no time for a premeditative homicide. Therefore any competent states attorney would not have pressed first-degree homicide charges against Dunn. The jury ultimately did the right thing by doing what it could by convicting Dunn on several counts of attempted murder instead.

     Dunn could go to prison for a long time with the charges he was convicted of. But this is not good enough for Angela Corey. Despite the stupidity of charging and losing her attempt to jail Zimmerman on second-degree murder, she wants to retry Dunn so that she can convict him for the first-degree murder of Davis. Yet Dunn had just met Davis so this is hardly a case where a premeditative element would apply.

     Facts make no difference to Angela Corey who seems to love the camera more than Al Sharpton did during the Zimmerman affair. Corey is going to risk setting Dunn free on many legal technicalities according to Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. According to Dershowitz in a CNN interview, Dunn was “overcharged,” and “Dunn could walk free due to Corey’s 'prosecutorial ineptitude.'”

     Dershowitz went on to say “The people of Florida ought to get smart and get rid of her.”

     The people should have recalled Corey after the Zimmerman case along with their Governor Rick Scott. To allow Corey to operate like a steamroller in a China shop with the throttle stuck to the floor to appease political pressure from activists and to look good in the eyes of the anti-stand-your-ground press is inexcusable.

     Corey needs to head back to her murky cesspool and stop terrorizing the locals with her style of overcharging defendants. She needs to leave the legal system to precision-minded lawyers who will charge defendants with the appropriate statutes given to them by the Florida legislature to obtain justice.

-Smart Gun gimmicks won’t solve any problems

    Photobucket
    HarryUSA

    The New Jersey legislature put a law on the books years ago that would ban the sale of traditional firearms in favor of guns armed with a chip that would recognize the owner of the firearm and disable itself if the gun fell into the wrong hands. There are many companies that appear to be lining up to fill New Jersey's demand for safer firearms.          

 photo smartgun_zpsc0875816.jpg   photo smartwatch_zps6460f242.jpg
 Armatix iP1 .22lr Pistol                                                            Armatix iW1 Active RFID Watch

    One corporation that appears to be capable of satisfying New Jersey law makers is Armatix. Armatix is a German based corporation that designs and manufactures a futuristic looking .22lr caliber pistol which comes equipped with a circuit that interfaces with a companion battery operated RFID wristwatch which requires its owner to type a pin number into the watch before the firearm can be operational. If the wristwatch travels more than ten inches from the pistol, the firearm disables itself preventing a child or thief from using it.   

 photo yardarm-solution-final-chart-1024x659_zps5ef39e50.jpg
 Yard Arm cellular tracking and trigger safety system

    Another company bent on firearm safety is Yardarm that makes a system which is integrated into the cellular network. Their system allows a gun owner to disable a firearm at a distance and know if their firearms are being moved. The Yardarm system acts like a home alarm system and can call the police if a gun owner’s firearms were being stolen.   

    Boosters for the Yardarm and Armatix systems are overjoyed at the presence of these latest technologies because they feel these electronic systems will make firearms safer by helping to prevent accidents and criminal activity.   

 photo smart_rifle_zpsa687eed7.png
Tracking Point XactSystem

    However some firearm safety enthusiasts who adore smart guns may not care for the $27,000 computer-aided system developed by Tracking Point that helps the novice rifle owner hit targets at 1,000 yards with greater frequency. The shooter simply needs to point a dot on the target and the computer assists the rifle operator in making the shot. Information gathered by the scope could even be streamed onto the Internet for others to watch.  

    Some may feel that this makes the rifle too powerful and can turn a common criminal into an expert sniper capable of committing more damage due to the computer assisted shooting.

    The most disturbing aspect of this issue is that people think that by re-engineering the gun society will somehow be safer or in greater danger depending on the technology being deployed. Yet every day, gang members use non-electronic firearms to murder each other and innocent bystanders so that they can control drug distribution areas worth a King’s ransom. Smart guns may save a few lives if they become popular, but what are ordinary citizens or gang members going to do with the guns they already own? How will smart guns stop accidents when Americans already own and operate several hundred million guns that will easily last as long as the relics from the revolution?  

    Smart guns could prevent accidents caused by children, but who is going to buy one when many people already have the standard technology? What market share will electronic guns have in the next ten years? A healthy guess would be a very low share due to their higher cost and questionable reliability; therefore electronic guns will probably have a very low impact on accidents and crime.

                                 Gang Culture, "The Untelevised Revolution" by Malcolm Pruitt
                                         Retrieved from: http://thewordlasc.weebly.com/gang-culture--malcolm-pruitt.html

    Firearms are not the source of our violent crime problems. Gangs that operate in impoverished neighborhoods like Chicago’s west side or in south central Los Angeles commit most of the homicides our country. There is a global lust for drugs and people in the poorest neighborhoods are desperate enough to perform the most dangerous jobs to get a share of the money generated from drug sales. America prefers to spend billions on a global military network when it’s obvious that such spending is needed at home to fix our rotting bridges and crime issues. Yet who lobbies for the poor as well as our military to accomplish this?  

    Our country needs to understand that electronic gimmicks, although interesting, have no way of solving our problems. We need to invest in impoverished neighborhoods if we are going to have any chance of making them more peaceful. As far as accidents are concerned, there are trigger locks, safes and other technologies already available to keep guns safer. What makes anyone think that careless gun owners won’t leave their RFID wristwatches around for their kids to get their hands on?   

    No technology can protect children from careless parents while enhanced optics and computer generated aiming will not turn people into criminals any more than the current technology that is already available. We need to look deeper into our psychology to help resolve our problems.

-Phil Robertson and Modern Conservative Bigotry



Photobucket
HarryUSA

Back in December of last year, Phil Robertson of the Duck Dynasty show opened up his foul mouth and let forth a putrid volume of bigoted insults aimed at the gay population. Robertson was expressing his negative feelings towards gay men when he said, “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

                   
                           Gov. Jindal                                   Sarah Palin                                        Phil Robertson        

            As if that wasn’t enough, the duck whistle blowing bigot gave his viewpoint on what he considered to be sinful by equating homosexuality with “bestiality” and with people that “sleep around” or are “drunkards, greedy, slanderers, and swindlers” who will not inherit the kingdom of the invisible man for their sins. 

Presumably Robertson is referring to the kingdom of god the cosmological dictator that favors minions of hate like Jerry Falwell by rewarding them with heavenly land for spending a lifetime insulting gays and evolutionists with uneducated remarks before a national audience.

Robertson also did a great job rewriting history by saying that organizations that came from countries without Jesus were more prone to violence like the Nazis and Communists. This belief ignores the fact that the Russians, to some degree, were Russian Orthodox and the Nazi’s were a combination of Catholic and Protestant. On the belt buckles of the Nazi’s worn during World War Two, the inscription read, “gott mit uns.” Translated this means “god with us.” So the German and Russian people were not godless as Robertson has stated.

            The most startling observation however, were not comments made by a retrobate who makes his living blowing into a duck whistle to amuse other retrobates via the television, but the level of support Robertson has received from the politically connected like Sarah Palin and Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana. Both have stated that they believe Robertson has a right to his beliefs and to say them on television. Apparently they were upset over the fact that A&E suspended the duck whisperer temporarily for embarrassing their network with his asinine comments. 

                              
                                KKK                                                  Lester Maddox

            It’s no surprise that Palin and Jindal are against gay marriage. Both are conservatives and the conservatives formed in response to US policy change favoring civil liberties for blacks. Both have come out against gay marriage and to make matters even worse, Palin belongs to a church called the Wasilla Bible Church in Wasilla Alaska. In 2008, the church held a conference promoting the idea that they could heal gays by praying away their same sex orientation! 

            More disturbing is the fact that in 2005 the Ku Klux Klan supported Proposition 2 during a “pro-family values” rally in Austin Texas which eventually passed and prohibited gay marriages in that state.  Sadly, the KKK points to the same bible that Palin and Robertson do to justify their beliefs. Grand dragon of the KKK Steven Edwards said, “We're asking Texans to support Proposition 2 because God supports it, not because the KKK supports it.”

            When Palin and Jindal say they support Robertson’s right to speak his mind, their defense of his rights is reminiscent of the way racists in Atlanta used to defend their “rights” by segregating buses, schools, public pools and restaurants by claiming they were protecting their “right of association.” In his book White Flight, Princeton University Professor Kevin M. Kruse details how racist conservatives would “tone down their racist rhetoric and stress their own rights instead.” 

         
           Lyndon B. Johnson with Martin Luther King Jr Signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964

Lester Maddox, owner of the Pickrick restaurant in Atlanta Georgia claimed to Federal Judge Frank Hooper back in 1965 that he wasn’t kicking people out because they were black. Maddox, according to his attorneys, was restricting his clientele for political and not racial reasons. Maddox said, “Color doesn’t have anything to do with rejection of customers from my place of business…I will never serve integrationists regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin.” 

Yet from the Pickrick, Maddox sold axe handles for his white customers to swing at blacks trying to eat at his restaurant. A few years after Maddox closed down his restaurant he turned from racist folk hero into the Governor of Georgia. 

So when Palin and Jindal say they support the right for Robertson to announce his beliefs, what they are really saying is that they agree with him. However, by respecting his right to insult millions of people, they cowardly avoid making any strong anti-gay statements like Robertson did. The same way Maddox avoided making racist remarks in front of Judge Hooper or the press back in the mid 1960’s.

The conservative movement to a major degree formed because of intolerance for others. In 1964 Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which ended Jim Crow laws established in the Supreme Court case of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) which upheld racial segregation. Upon signing the bill into law, LBJ said that he had just “delivered the South to the Republican Party for a long time to come.” 

You can still see Republicans like Palin and Jindal carrying the torch of intolerance passed on by clowns like Lester Maddox and the Ku Klux Klan till this day.

-JFK Assassination; Debunking Multiple Gunman Idea



    
Photobucket
HarryUSA
On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States was assassinated while traveling through Dealey Plaza in Dallas at 12:30pm by what appears to have been a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald is said to have been perched in a window on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building and fired three shots at Kennedy as he passed in an open motorcade. Kennedy later died of his injuries at Parkland Hospital. Texas Governor John Connelly was wounded in the attack and survived his injuries.

      
     John F. Kennedy

Since the assassination of Kennedy, many crackpots have come up with some of the most ridiculous hypothesis to explain the circumstances leading up to his death. Some of these crackpots have wasted the taxpayer's money testifying before congress with their witless ideas perpetuating the myth that there were multiple gunmen shooting at the fallen president.

         lee harvey oswald
         Lee Harvey Oswald

Without debunking every hair-brained idea, simply debunking the multiple gunman myth should help many better understand what happened on that sunny day in Dallas. It appears that the multiple gunman myth is the lynch pin to the idea that Kennedy's death was a conspiracy laid out by dark forces in our federal government.

There has been powerful evidence collected back in 1963 that contradicts the multiple gunmen hypothesis. The bullet wounds to Kennedy's head and neck; Connelly's back and chest; the logistics of Dealey Plaza; plus statements made by Abraham Zapruder after the assassination. Zapruder’s recording of Kennedy’s death made by him with his eight-millimeter camera is probably the greatest piece of evidence in this case since it shows the actual assassination itself. 

Kennedy's gunshot wounds came from behind according to autopsy photos where two clear holes can be seen. One hole can be seen on the back of his head and the other by the base of his neck. This is logical considering the logistics of Dealey Plaza. Since there were buildings behind Kennedy's motorcade and not in front, where else could a gunman get into position to shoot him from? A shot from some of the buildings from Kennedy’s left would have put holes on the left side of Kennedy's body. Not the back. 

Governor Connelly had an entrance wound in the back. The bullet exited from under his right breast producing a keyhole shaped wound indicating the bullet tumbled inside of his body. Taking into consideration how Connelly was sitting inside of the vehicle, how else could a bullet have entered his body but from behind? The bullet that entered Connelly first entered Kennedy's throat. This can be proven due to the fact that Kennedy can be seen reacting to the shot at the same time Connelly reacts in the Zapruder film.

Back in 1967 CBS had several riflemen fire three rounds and hit a moving target in the same time that Kennedy’s assassin had. A few years ago, the Discovery Channel hired a marksman to duplicate the Dealey Plaza shooting of Kennedy by representing Kennedy and Connelly with ballistic gel. The rifleman was able to duplicate the shots Oswald allegedly fired back in 1963. These tests debunked the idea that the Dealey Plaza shots had to be performed by two gunmen because it was simply too hard for one marksman. 
             
Could a shot have come from the front of the motorcade? If so, then why was the windshield of the vehicle Kennedy was riding in still intact? The intact windshield can be seen in Zapruder’s film. 

Zapruder in an interview destroyed the myth of the grassy knoll gunman. Zapruder said that he did not hear anything from the grassy knoll where he was filming and that the shots fired appeared to be the same and not from different gunmen. If there had been a shooter in the grassy knoll, the noise level would have been so loud he could have dropped his eight-millimeter camera as a result. So it appears that the shots that killed the president came from behind as the autopsy photos reveal. 

Even the accused but never convicted Lee Harvey Oswald was not remarkable compared to the men who were accused of killing former US Presidents. In 1865, John Wilkes Booth allegedly shot Lincoln in the back of the head at close range during a play. He was apparently disturbed over the Civil War. Booth is said to have conspired with others to murder high-level government officials. Booth was shot to death during his apprehension and the other conspirators were tried and hung.  


Charles J. Guiteau was convicted of killing James A. Garfield in 1881 and hung. Guiteau was turned down for a federal appointment. Anarchist Leon Czolgosz was convicted of assassinating William McKinley in 1901 and was electrocuted. He is said to have believed McKinley was the head of a corrupt government. 

One piece of evidence said to implicate Oswald as a murderer was a Smith & Wesson .38 Special caliber revolver. This pistol was found on his person when Dallas police arrested him shortly after Kennedy's assassination and shooting death of Dallas police officer Tippit. The revolver was said to have been the weapon that killed the police officer.

The other was a Mannlicher Carcano rifle believed to be the rifle used to kill the president was purchased by Oswald and was found by the Dallas Police on the sixth floor of the book depository where Oswald's fingerprints were found on boxes stacked by the window. Oswald's right palm print, according to the FBI was detected on the barrel. The location in which the rifle was located is consistent with the autopsy photos that suggest that the president was shot from behind.

Finally, considering the most fundamental evidence presented by authorities, Zapruder, his film, and his denial that there was no shooter in the grassy knoll, it is clear that the probability of two assassins working in concert with each other to assassinate President Kennedy is not realistic. All of the evidence points to a single gunman as the president’s assassin that may or may not have been influenced by others prior to the shooting.
