Apparently the person who gave their gun to Kyle Rittenhouse has some explaining to do.
Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old gunman charged with killing two men with an AR-15 rifle in Wisconsin during protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, will not face firearm charges in his home state of Illinois.
The Lake County State's Attorney's Office said in a statement on Tuesday that an investigation by the Antioch Police Department in Illinois revealed the gun allegedly used by Rittenhouse in the Kenosha shooting on Aug. 25 was “purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin.”
There is no evidence the gun was ever physically possessed by Rittenhouse in Illinois, the office said.
At some moment there could still be other charges.

And recall that Rittenhouse hung out with numerous Boogaloo Bois in Kenosha.
