Many Americans have been gaslit through the constant barrage of media coverage that has depicted Rittenhouse as a criminal. For example, many Americans have been duped into believing that Rittenhouse illegally possessed his AR-15 rifle that he used in self-defense.
However, facts don’t care for the media's narratives. On August 30, 2020, attorney John Piece explicitly stated his client, Kyle Rittenhouse, legally possessed his rifle that he used in self-defense during the riots that took place in Kenosha a few days before.
Pierce was in touch with Breitbart News on November 14, when he told them:
Wisconsin is an open carry state. You’ve seen the video of what was going on in that city. It was a war zone, and Kyle had every right — just as much a right — to be there as the people that were trying to burn down that city, and he was attempting to protect property and attempting to be there to provide medical aid.
Pierce added that Rittenhouse was purused and threatened by the individuals he ended up shooting in self-defense, emphazising, “It’s absolute 100 percent self-defense, and we’re going to prove it if we have to. It was legal for him to possess that weapon in Wisconsin.”
We’re going to trial. We’re going to win this case. If I’m the prosecutor, I drop these charges immediately. I think that this is a rush of judgment, and if I was the prosecutor, I would be terrified to take this case to trial. I do not believe that there’s a jury in this country that’s going to look at these facts and is going to find him guilty for murder.
On November 15, Judge Bruce Schroeder threw out the weapons charge pressed against Rittenhouse. The judge took the side of the defense by declaring that the charge only applied if Rittenhouse’s firearm fell under the category of a Short Barrel Rifle (SBR).
Rittenhouse’s AR-15 does not classify as an SBR. Nevertheless, the media will never recognize this and continue peddling blatant falsehoods about Rittenhouse. That’s why it’s incumbent upon Second Amendment patriots to let the truth be told and leave a historical record for future generations to consume.
Evil forces like the Left should never be allowed to re-write history in their favor.
