There There: Part II: Tony Loneman (2) Summary & Analysis

The bullets fired in the powwow shooting make their journey from the Black Hill Ammunition plant in South Dakota to a Walmart in Oakland, where Tony Loneman purchases them and places them in his backpack until he arrives at the coliseum entrance, at which point he dumps them from their boxes into a sock and swings it up over the wall into a hedge the night before the event. As he does this, Tony wonders what has caused him to wind up where he is.
Tony experiences the briefest moment of doubt and uncertainty as he prepares for the robbery, but not enough to stop the plan from going forward.
