VIDEO - The 7.65 Mauser


Recommended Posts

Thanks Gil.

At 2.37 minutes on this clip, you can see the second rifle in the footage. It has been outlined in red.

I'm sure this will be explained by the official voices as just simply being a police rifle.... What officer would lay their weapon down with the barrel pointing toward the ground and the stock pointing up?

IMO this video proves with both the footage as well as Sheriff's Deputy Roger Craig's testimony, that two rifles were found in the TSBD. Also take into account the testimony of Sheriff's Deputy Seymour Weitzman, who was the first to identify the first rifle as a 7.65 mm. German made Mauser. Pretty solid evidence to try and debunk IMO.

In additional, Deputy Weitzman even wrote in his report that a 7.65 Mauser was found on the sixth floor.

Both of you make good points.

We are left to believe that the authorities immediately knew what type of rifle they had but somehow managed to give the press the wrong information. In addition, no apparent attempt was made by authorities to correct that error immediately, the correction was made some time later on the day after the assassination.

The timing of this revision is curious. It came AFTER the FBI had in its possession a rifle with a "palmprint" on it that had been dusted by the DPD. The FBI found no such print on it. This rifle was then mysteriously sent back to the DPD, an interesting move given that the FBI woiuld eventually take control of all the evidence.

One has to wonder if this rifle was the Mauser and because it did not contain Oswald's prints it disappeared into history.
