Kyle Rittenhouse Won't Face Charges In The Home State Of Illinois

The teenager implicated in Kenosha shootings, Kyle Rittenhouse, won't face gun charges in the home state of Illinois after prosecutors found no firearm infractions. The Lake County State Attorney's office said that Rittenhouse purchased, used, and stored the firearm in Wisconsin. The office added that an Antioch Police Department's investigation produced no evidence that Rittenhouse possessed the firearm in Illinois. Consequently, Lake County will not press any charges against the teen.

However, the 17-year old remains in Depke Juvenile Complex Center in Vernon Hills, awaiting extradition to Wisconsin. His lawyers are fighting the repatriation and will appear in Lake County court for another hearing on October 30. The court denied him bail because of the pending criminal charges in Kenosha. Rittenhouse's lawyers are concerned about his safety if the court issues extradition orders.

The 17-year-old faces first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and the possession of a dangerous weapon by a minor.

Rittenhouse became the subject of the leftist propaganda campaign immediately after the shooting occurred. The Left has accused the teen of racism and belonging to a white supremacist group. His lawyer said he would sue Biden for libel after labeling the Antioch teen as a white supremacist.

Various liberal media outlets also went on a cleansing spree to sanitize Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, the two men who died after attacking Rittenhouse in Kenosha.

Detective Cepress questioned McGinnis, one of the men present during the confrontations. McGinnis admitted that Rosenbaum tried to grab Rittenhouse's firearm and leaned on it when he was shot. The same investigation disclosed that Huber struck the teen with a skateboard while he was on the ground and tried to grab his gun.


Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
