>>In the previous paragraphs, Mark Lane explained the inconvenience of the
>>original evidence of a German Mauser.
>>"I traveled to Dallas at the beginning of 1964 and there met Hugh Aynesworth, a
>>reporter for The Dallas Morning News, who gave me photostated copies of a number
>>of original affidavits. These documents, prepared by the Dallas police, included
>>one signed by Deputy Constable Weitzman. Although the Commission did not publish
>>Weitzman's affidavit in the Report, it may be found - with diligence — in Volume
>>XXIV, where it was reproduced without comment. So as to make the record more
>>nearly perfect, I offer it as an appendix. It reveals that Weitzman described
>>the rifle which he and Boone had discovered as 'a 7.65 Mauser bolt action
>>equipped with a 4/18 scope, a thick leather brownish-black sling on it'."
>>The Seymour Weitzman affidavit that Mark Lane talks about can be found here:
>>Mark Lane is now detailing the circumstances surrounding the alleged murder
>Of course, the Alyea film, which shows the weapon clearly, shows it to
>be a Mannlicher-Carcano.
Of course this fact wouldn't keep Lane or Holmes from a good story.
