Kyle Rittenhouse Cleared On All Charges

November 19, 2021

Loveland, CO – Today, the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial cleared Kyle of all charges against him, confirming that Kyle acted in self-defense against violent attackers during the Kenosha, WI riots in 2020.  

“Today, the American justice system worked as designed, and a young man who has been lambasted, defamed, and threatened by the media and anti-gun Left was declared innocent of all the charges against him. When we saw the video evidence of Kyle defending himself and others in Kenosha, WI, NFGR made the decision to support him right away, and we’re thrilled to see that he is now a free man,” said Dudley Brown, Executive Director for the National Foundation for Gun Rights.

The National Foundation for Gun Rights raised over $50,000 for Kyle Rittenhouse to help pay for his legal fees back in 2020. The National Foundation for Gun Rights, the legal wing of the National Association for Gun Rights, exists to defend the Second Amendment in the court system.

“Self-defense is a God-given right, and Kyle defended himself in the face of grave danger and bodily harm. We hope that Kyle will now be allowed to live a free and prosperous life, and that all Americans will understand that the Second Amendment isn’t about hunting – it’s about the right to defend oneself from tyranny and lawless criminal actors. The best gun laws in the world mean nothing if they’re not enforced and unconstitutional laws are not forcefully challenged – and the National Foundation for Gun Rights was founded to do just that.” concluded Brown.

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is a 503(c)(3) organization that exists to expand pro-gun precedents and defend gun owners in the courts.
