In an effort to allow a self-defense expert to testify at Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial next month, which is scheduled for next month in Kenosha, Wiscons. Rittenhouse is accused of shooting two protesters to death in the summer of last year.

In an expert report, self-defense specialist John R. Black presented his findings to the court last Tuesday (Oct. 5). Rittenhouse explained that he would pull the trigger every time in order to protect himself and prevent his firearm from being stolen. “Despite my reservations about Rittenhouse’s actions, I believe they were reasonable.,” he added. In his conclusion, Black stated that the reasons for every shooting were associated with an intent to take the weapon from the defendant.

Several people attempted to disarm Rittenhouse after he shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum in video footage from the night of the shooting on Aug. 25, 2020. Rosenbaum is not recorded as having attempted to take the rifle away from the 17-year-old in any clear images.

Rittenhouse fell down the street while running after he shot Rosenbaum. He fired two shots at two men standing near him while he was on the ground. A single gunshot killed Anthony Huber, while Gaige Grosskreutxz survived a shot to the arm, but survived.

The Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder did not dismiss the gun charge against Rittenhouse during Tuesday’s proceeding, despite arguments from Rittenhouse’s attorneys that Wisconsin’s hunting laws allow him to possess an assault rifle. As reported in the Chicago Tribune, “any individual 16 or younger who wishes to possess a firearm while hunting must undergo specific training and supervision.” No restrictions apply to anyone over that age.”

Richard Rittenhouse is charged with two counts each of homicide in the first degree, reckless homicide, and attempted homicide in the first degree. Furthermore, he is accused of being a juvenile in possession of a firearm, a misdemeanor. His trial will begin on November 1.
