The Kyle Rittenhouse trial is wrapping up and closing arguments are taking place.
Rittenhouse killed child molester Joseph Rosenbaum and domestic abuser Anthony Huber, while injuring Antifa extremist Gaige Grosskreutz last summer during rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Rittenhouse traveled from his nearby home in Illinois to protect law and order from BLM and Antifa domestic terrorism.
Later, he was cornered in the street by Rosenbaum, Huber, Grosskreutz, and a large mob of violent communists. They tried to kill him and got killed instead.
Now, his trial is wrapping up. However, it also includes an important issue of gun rights. That’s because charges relating to Rittenhouse’s Smith & Wesson M&P semiautomatic rifle have now been dropped.
What Were the Gun Charges?
Rittenhouse was 17 at the time of the shootings last year. He is now 18. He faced charges of being under 18 and possessing a “dangerous weapon.”
Judge Bruce Schroeder dropped the charges, saying they are unclear and shouldn’t apply here.
Rittenhouse going from his home in Antioch, Illinois to Kenosha, Wisconsin to keep the streets safe has been portrayed by the prosecution as him wanting to harm people. Their only proof? He carried his weapon there.
As Schroeder and those who actually know the law argue, however, having a gun doesn’t automatically make you guilty.
Moreover, Wisconsin’s law has a provision whereby Rittenhouse can be seen to be innocent of the possession charge.
The prosecutors in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial just admitted that there was no basis for the illegal weapons charge. It was just dismissed by the judge.
The prosecutors knew this was a BS charge and still included it to help frame the underlying, absurd murder charges.

Wisconsin’s Possession Law
Under the Wisconsin law, the law must examine whether a rifle has a short barrel or not. If it does, it is considered dangerous.
Although, Rittenhouse did not have a short-barrel rifle, and therefore, Schroeder ruled the charge doesn’t apply.
Schroeder also threw out an earlier attempt to say Rittenhouse was breaking curfew. The reason he threw this out is the prosecution was unable to actually prove there was even a curfew put in at the time.
Despite the attempts of the liberal media to twist the facts more and more, the fact of the matter is Rittenhouse wasn’t some gun-toting psychopath.
The whole obsession with him crossing state lines (I thought the left didn’t believe in borders?) is also bizarre.
Rittenhouse worked in Kenosha and his dad lived there. It was far from just some random place for him; this is why he wanted to protect it from crazed communists.
That's it. With the gun charge tossed, Kyle Rittenhouse should walk free on the basis of self-defense.

What Happens Next?
As closing arguments take place and we await a verdict, the country is in a tense state. Wisconsin prepared National Guard troops in case rioting and violence breaks out.
There’s no doubt the leftist media has riled up the American people into a frenzy. In so doing, they’ve primed the country for a violent reaction.
Let’s hope justice is served without any more bloodshed.
