Update (1322ET): In a stunning statement revealing his ignorance of the 2nd Amendment, lead prosecutor Thomas Binger asserted to the jury during closing arguments that “You lose the right to self-defense when you’re the one who brought the gun,” adding “When you’re the one creating the danger. When you’re the one provoking other people.”
By this logic, nobody who owns a gun has a right to use it in self-defense. This is an explicit assault on our basic Second Amendment rights. That’s how this weasel has framed the entire case. https://t.co/i2GqZbX5vX— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) November 15, 2021

MSM streams are still broadcasting as of this writing, and the trial can be viewed below:

The judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse case has dismissed the charge that the teen was unlawfully carrying a weapon in August 2020 – the only firearms related charge against him (count 6, possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18), arguing that the Wisconsin law was poorly written and that the law was not violated by the shorter barrel on the firearm.
