(Testimony of Bob K. Carroll)

Mr. Ball.
I think that's all.
Mr. Carroll, this will be written up by the shorthand reporter and you have the privilege of looking it over and making any corrections and signing it, if you wish, or you can waive signature and we will send it on to the Commission.
Mr. Carroll.
Yes, sir; all right, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Do you want to waive signature?
Mr. Carroll.
No, sir; I will sign it.
Mr. Ball.
All right, then, if you want to sign it, we'll get in touch with you and tell you what time it will be ready and you can come down and look it over.
Mr. Carroll.
All right.
Mr. Ball.
All right, fine. Thank you very much for coming in.
Mr. Carroll.
All right, thank you.

Testimony of Bob K. Carroll Resumed

The testimony of Bob K. Carroll was taken at 10:30 a.m., on April 9, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. David W. Belin, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Belin.
Will you rise and be sworn, please. Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Carroll.
I do, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Your name is?
Mr. Carroll.
Bob K. Carroll.
Mr. Belin.
You previously had your deposition taken here in Dallas by the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, have you not?
Mr. Carroll.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Did Mr. Ball take that?
Mr. Carroll.
It was Mr. Ball; yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
About what day was that?
Mr. Carroll.
It was on a Friday, last, I believe. I don't know what day that would be.
Mr. Belin.
Well, today is the following Thursday. At that time we didn't have some of the exhibits here, Officer Carroll, and since then they have come in. I now want to hand you one of the exhibits which has been marked as Commission Exhibit 143 and ask you to state what that is?
Mr. Carroll.
Yes, sir. It is a .38 caliber revolver with a blue steel 2" barrel with wooden handle.
Mr. Belin.
Have you ever seen this before?
Mr. Carroll.
Yes; I have.
Mr. Belin.
Where did you first see it?
Mr. Carroll.
I first saw it in the Texas Theatre on November 22, 1963.
Mr. Belin.
Would you just tell us about this weapon, when you first saw it?
Mr. Carroll.
The first time I saw the weapon, it was pointed in my direction, and I reached and grabbed it and stuck it into my belt.
Mr. Belin.
What did you happen to be doing at the time?
Mr. Carroll.
At the time, I was assisting in the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald.
Mr. Belin.
Do you know whose hand was on the gun when you saw it pointed in your direction?
Mr. Carroll.
No; I do not.
Mr. Belin.
You just jumped and grabbed it?
Mr. Carroll.
I jumped and grabbed the gun; yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Then what did you do with it?
Mr. Carroll.
Stuck it in my belt.
Mr. Belin.
And then?
