How hard do you think the Kenosha DA was going to work to get Kyle convicted...

After refusing to even charge the officer who shot Blake 7 times at point blank range, in the back? The officer was clearly not in any danger while, one could argue, Rittenhouse certainly was. Of course, Rittenhouse brought his own danger with him but the state seemed to want to overlook that. Was there even a question about how Rittenhouse would have a gun with him. If I want to avoid background checks, do I simply have a friend buy a gun for me? Was there one question about who gets to ignore a curfew and who doesn't?

New Tee shirt time....why not?

To go with my open carry AR15:

I'M SCARED SHIT-LESS THAT YOU ARE A DANGER! STAY BACK 10 FEET.

RE: Rittenhouse, Self Defense, and Provocation.

If I'm reading correctly, the following scenario the shooter would be successful in claiming self defense.

1. Police stops driver for undetermined offense.

2. Police approach car with gun at ready, aimed at driver. (See George Floyd videos).

3. Driver has legal, registered firearm on seat next to him.

4. Driver, seeing his life was in danger, unable to retreat as he was sitting in car and could not move out of Policeman's aim or range, picks up gun and kills Policeman.

Legal, self defense in Wisconsin? State has to prove he wasn't self defending?
