WI – GUN RIGHTS – National Foundation for Gun Rights raises $50K to ‘support’ Kenosha shooting suspect Kyle Rittenhouse

A conservative gun rights group has raised $50,000 for the Illinois teenager charged with shooting three people, two fatally, during protests last month in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The conservative National Foundation for Gun Rights, based in Loveland, Colorado, announced Thursday it has sent $50,000 to Kyle Rittenhouse for “defending himself and business owners” amid protests following the fatal police shooting of Jacob Blake. “I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” NFGR Executive Director Dudley Brown said in a news release. According to the news release, Rittenhouse’s mother responded: “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much — and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.” The gun lobby donation came after GoFundMe pulled down fundraisers intended to support Rittenhouse and refunded all donations, The Washington Times reported last month. Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois, is facing six charges, including one count of first-degree intentional homicide. The 17-year-old is being charged as an adult in Wisconsin and would face life in prison if convicted of the most serious charge.
