Texas Gun Rights names Kyle Rittenhouse new outreach director [View all]

From the Houston Chronicle:

Texas Gun Rights has announced Kyle Rittenhouse as the organization’s outreach director. The gun advocacy group disclosed the new hire on Tuesday.

“Joining Texas Gun Rights is an awesome opportunity to continue advocating for our constitutional freedoms,” Rittenhouse said in a statement. “I am excited to work with TXGR to mobilize Texans in support of their right to keep and bear arms. Together, we can ensure that our voices are heard and our rights are protected in Austin and D.C.”

Rittenhouse, who found himself in the national spotlight following the shooting death of two men in 2020, ended up being acquitted of all charges in 2021. The deadly incident sparked debates across America about racial injustice protests and gun rights. Rittenhouse, 17 at the time, attended a Black Lives Matter rally in Kenosha, Wisconsin, armed with an AR-15-style rifle.
