The manual mentions what happens if a survivor dies with more than one item equipped, so survivors can equip more than one item but:

Can you equip more of the same item type(two weapons, two books, etc.)?

Example: Can Mike Cho have a Shotgun & the Lighter?

The rules do not say that you cannot even have more than one of the same item, much less a similar type of item, and they do indeed state that you can have more than one card equipped.
So, if the text of the card also does not say you cannot have multiples, it seems logical that you can.

That is exactly what I was going with.

In a 2 player co-op game my friend had a Sophie Robinson equipped with:
Beginner's Martial Arts(Book)
Baseball Bat(Tool)
Guide to Leadership(Book)
Flashlight(Tool)

I thought it was okay...after rechecking and rechecking the manual that issnore.

I just remembered a win condition last night that required the player to have a character equipped with two of a particular item at the end of the game to win. So, there you go!

correct. Two of the same item is fine. Last night John Price was dual wielding sniper rifles.

I had John Price with Blueprints equipped and the principal beside in the school. He was searching like mad every turn. Add a baseball bat and the book of martial arts and you've got this hilariously funny B-movie scene of the student clubbing down zombies like a madman . I love how thematic this game can be, if things work out.
