Kyle Rittenhouse has returned to the court in Wisconsin to appear before the same judge who presided over his trial for phony “murder” charges.
However, this time instead of fighting for his life and freedom, Rittenhouse wants his gun back.
Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts after the prosecutors pushed a flimsy case.
The jury agreed with Rittenhouse that he was forced to fire his weapon in self defence while being attacked by violent Black Lives Matter rioters.
Rittenhouse’s attorney, Mark Richards, filed a motion in court asking prosecutors to return Kyle’s rifle, ammunition, face mask, and other clothing he was wearing that night.
David Hancock, a spokesman for Rittenhouse, said earlier Rittenhouse intends to destroy the rifle and throw the rest of the items away so they can’t be used as a political symbol for either side.
“At the end of the day, two people did lose their lives, period,” Hancock said.
“That weapon was involved in that.
“That weapon doesn’t belong on a mantle.
“It doesn’t belong in a museum.
“It belongs where Kyle wants it, and Kyle wants it destroyed.
“There’s plenty of people out there who would like to hold these items up, on both sides.
“That’s nothing Kyle’s interested in.”

The motion is before Judge Bruce Schroeder, the Kenosha County judge who presided over Rittenhouse’s trial.
From The New York Post:
According to the motion, Black had agreed that the rifle would become Rittenhouse’s property on his 18th birthday, Jan. 3, 2021.
Bystander and surveillance video shows that just before midnight Rosenbaum chased Rittenhouse down and Rittenhouse shot him as he closed in on him.
He shot Huber after Huber swung a skateboard at his head and Grosskreutz after Grosskreutz ran up to him holding a pistol. Everyone involved in the shooting was white.
Black pleaded no contest to two citations earlier this month for contributing to the delinquency of a minor in exchange for prosecutors dropping two felony charges of intent to sell a dangerous weapon to a person younger than 18.
Looking at NFT’s … dropping my first one soon, anyone have any suggestions?!
