Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney: “If every law-abiding American showed up in the city
that they loved with an AR-15, the chaos would stop immediately.” Special Thanks to Reloader 83
yle Rittenhouse legally possessed a firearm last Tuesday in Wisconsin, said John Pierce, an attorney representing the 17 year-old, offering his remarks in an interview on Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak.
Joel Pollak asks how Rittenhouse obtained a firearm.
“Wisconsin is an open carry state,” replied Pierce. “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, “Every person that has any sense at all is going to take a weapon to that location. It was a legal weapon. I can’t comment right now further on the specifics of where the weapon was obtained. It was obtained as a legal weapon. It did not cross state lines. That charge is incorrect as a matter of law in Wisconsin. Actually, that weapon can be possessed by anyone 16 years or older.”
Pollak asked, “People are wondering why he would come to a violent scene. Was he looking to be a hero? Was he looking for confrontation? What was his motivation?”
“Kyle was not there looking for a fight,” Pierce remarked. “He is a great kid who serves as a community lifeguard in Kenosha. He was there to protect businesses that were being destroyed and burned to the ground. He was also there to provide medical aid to protesters and others who might be wounded. He actually took a first aid kit there to help wounded protesters, which he did repeatedly.”
