Rittenhouse Shreds Biden with Viral Second Amendment Posts
Teen slams Democrat efforts to push gun-control measures
Kyle Rittenhouse has shredded Democrat Joe Biden in viral social media posts advocating for Americans' Second Amendment rights.
Rittenhouse posted two viral tweets pushing back on calls for so-called "common-sense" laws being promoted by Biden.
Biden and the Democrats have been aggressively pushing gun control measures in the wake of the tragic Uvalde, Texas, school shooting.
Rittenhouse fatally shot two rioters and injured a third while defending himself against armed attackers during Black Lives Matter riots in the summer of 2020.
The teen was facing life in prison with no chance at parole, but a jury found him not guilty.
“‘The right of people to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed,’ Joe,” Rittenhouse said via Twitter, quoting the U.S. Constitution.
Rittenhouse's post appeared to be making a reference to Biden and his speech concerning efforts to curb Americans’ gun rights.

“I am alive today because I was able to protect myself,” he added in a follow-up post.

Following last year’s verdict, Rittenhouse similarly asserted, “Self-defense is not illegal, and I believe they came to the correct verdict, and I’m glad that everything went well.”
Biden on Thursday called for “red flag” laws nationwide and a ban on so-called “assault weapons.”
"We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines,” Biden said.
"And if we can’t ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21.
"Strengthen the background checks, enact safe storage laws and ‘red flag’ laws.
"Repeal the immunity that protects gun manufacturers from liability.
"Address the mental health crisis deepening the trauma of gun violence, and as a consequence of that violence.”
"These are rational, common-sense measures,” he claimed.
"Here’s what it all means.
"It all means this: We should reinstate the assault weapons ban on high capacity magazines that we passed in 1994 with bipartisan support in Congress and the support of law enforcement.”
