Kyle Rittenhouse was employed in Kenosha as a community lifeguard; he was working in Kenosha that day and when he finished, he stayed to help other volunteers with some cleanup jobs. Kyle and his friend went to clean graffiti that rioters had vandalized a local high school with.
The volunteers were informed about a business owner looking for help, the owner of the car dealership in Kenosha which the riots basically decimated. He was asking for help defending his remaining livelihood, including two mechanic shops nearby, from further damage. Kyle and a friend armed themselves at that point and headed to the area. The weapons were already in Wisconsin when Kyle and his friend retrieved them; they were property of his friend, who is a resident of Wisconsin, and he allowed Kyle to borrow one, which is also legal.

The media and the Left keep screaming about illegal firearm possession, and are apparently genuinely unaware, or purposefully ignoring, that he was perfectly within his legal rights to be in possession of that rifle.
The section in Wisconsin state legislature dealing with the alleged crime is section 948.60, "Possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18."

So, this section will apply to them if they are in violation of section 941.28 of Wisconsin state legislature. Section 941.28 is dealing with the possession of short-barreled rifles and shotguns, along with what legally qualifies something as a "short-barreled" rifle or shotgun. The rifle that Kyle was carrying does not meet any of the required criteria of these definitions, and as such, is not in violation.
Let's look at the remaining conditions; these require that Kyle fail to be in compliance with subsections 29.304 and 29.593.
Subsection 29.304 covers restrictions and regulations concerning hunting, possession, and use of firearms by individuals under the age of sixteen. Kyle is seventeen, and so this does not apply.
Subsection 29.593 covers specific regulations and requirements for obtaining hunting approval, and also does not apply in this scenario.

In all states, you can use deadly force to defend yourself against death, serious bodily injury (which can include broken bones and perhaps even lost teeth), rape, or kidnapping, so long as (A) your fear is reasonable, and (B) the danger is imminent. We see in the footage Kyle being chased by mob, being struck across the back of the head or neck with a skateboard, and having another rioter literally jump stomp him while he was on the ground. We know that the first shot was fired from the crowd, and that they attempted to relieve him of his weapon.
Legally, all of the conditions have been met by the actions of the protesters, which would reasonably be considered to be likely to cause death or serious injury to the individual, and imminent danger could easily be proven by simply showing the footage of a mob of people chasing after him, or clubbing him with a skateboard (which constitutes use of lethal force, by the way).

The stories about him "wandering the streets with a rifle" are just outright lies. He was posted, defending the business of the Kenosha resident who put out the call, along with other volunteers. Long after the curfew had kicked in, police finally began breaking up protesters, who we have seen on camera trying to instigate Kyle and the others as they moved past the area the volunteers were posted.

Hours before the shootings occurred, there was footage posted on Twitter of Kyle stating exactly why he was there. To assist the owner in defending his livelihood, as he was doing, and to offer medical aid to people who might need it, anyone, including the BLM rioters. He brought a medical kit. He attempted to assist in giving medical aid to rioters, which was when his return path was cut off by police advancement. In footage taken at that point in the day, we can see the kiddie fucker he killed aggressively getting in his face, goading him to fight, and telling Kyle repeatedly to go ahead and shoot him.
He tried to leave when he heard that the second auto shop was currently being threatened. Aggressions escalated when rioters took to vandalizing and smashing the vehicles on the lot, and the first shot was fired from the crowd. We see in footage from a livestream by one of the rioters that Kyle then immediately proceeded to try and find the police, and when Kyle was recognized, the mob was called and the resulting chase ensued.
Had Kyle not responded as he did, they would have killed him, and we can hear the mob calling for violence and shouting threats as they chase him through the street. He was separated from his group, and they wanted him dead. Even then, after the incident was over, he Immediately attempted to turn himself in. The police told him to keep moving, and were focused on trying to attend to the shits bleeding out in the dirt. He still proceeded to turn himself in to authorities anyways.

Seriously; just shut up, sit the fuck down, and realize that the bullshit and guilt tripping and literal blatant lying that y'all love pulling isn't gonna work anymore.
For three months we have had to watch a bunch of little punk-ass pussies run around with impunity, assaulting people, murdering people (over thirty deaths so far, by the way, directly caused by the riots and rioters), defying all lockdown regulations, ignoring the curfew and the laws you suddenly apparently give so much of a shit about. Harassing small business with literal mob tactics, telling them they better sign over a percentage of their monthly earnings and put the list of demands up in the window, so their store wouldn't get, and I quote, "fucked with."
Y'all were real quiet when they robbed that trans girl and said it was because they didn't like "how she was talking". Before, of course, scurrying together into their little club to gang beat the individual man, who was trying to defend her, into unconsciousness. Couldn't fight him fair, of course, oh, heaven forbid. Those pussies know they would be absolutely destroyed if they tried to actually engage in a fight. Didn't say a word when people were being assaulted and killed for simply trying to defend themselves, couldn't give them even a thought.
Now you wanna scream and say justice and talk about what's legal or not, once your little thugs get merced? Fuck you, suck it up and cry some more. It's seriously hilarious that you don't see the obscene irony and hypocrisy of that.
No one believes you anymore, no one gives a fuck about your racist ideological views anymore, and no one cares for your victimhood bullshit anymore.
By the way, Kyle Rittenhouse is a goddamn hero. Go fuck yourself.
