11. The rifle was a Mannlicher-Carcano...

... and not known for its accuracy. The barrel bedding in the forestock was decidedly inferior, and that had a direct effect on the weapon's accuracy. A "documentary" a couple of years ago that was intended to support the single shooter theory posited that Kennedy's sudden backward jerk after the second round struck him was the result of an involuntary muscle response. Not likely. He had already been hit in the neck, severing the spinal cord. No "muscle reaction" could be possible. Those unfamiliar with basic ballistics, or even Newton's Laws of Motion, might believe that bullshit, but the Zapruder film shows, beyond the remotest shadow of a doubt, a body reacting to an impact from the FRONT, i.e. the infamous Grassy Knoll.

The contrived and tortured logic of that so-called documentary reminded me of the classic howl of last-ditch desperation, "Are ya gonna believe me, or your lying eyes?"
