    From what I have read (which changes every day) Rittenhouse gave Black money to purchase the rifle for him because he was under 18. That is a federal crime, regardless of what purpose Rittenhouse intended to use the rifle for. This is a textbook example of why that sort of thing is illegal, and Black's photo should be on the "Don't lie for the other guy" posters at gun shops.

    Found this about open carry https://www.doj.state.wi.us/sites/default/files/2009-news/final-open-carry-memo-2009.pdf
    I heard - no idea if it's true - that he passed several police officers without being questioned about anything, which I find odd if true.

    ¶6. Applying these principles to open carry matters, we recognize that under certain circumstances, openly carrying a firearm may contribute to a disorderly conduct charge. But this determination must take into account the constitutional protection afforded by Article I, § 25 of the Wisconsin Constitution. The Department believes that mere open carry of a firearm, absent additional facts and circumstances, should not result in a disorderly conduct charge. For example, a hunter openly carrying a rifle or shotgun on his property during hunting season while quietly tracking game should not face a disorderly conduct charge. But if the same hunter carries the same rifle or shotgun through a crowded street while barking at a passerby, the conduct may lose its constitutional protection. See Werstein, 60 Wis. 2d at 672-73 (collecting cases illustrating disorderly conduct) (“In each of these cases, convictions for being ‘otherwise disorderly’ resulted from the inappropriateness of specific conduct because of the circumstances involved”) (emphasis added).

    ¶9. And “even when officers have no basis for suspecting a particular individual, they may generally ask questions of that individual, [and] ask to examine the individual's identification,” as long as the police do not convey a message that compliance is mandatory. Florida v. Bostick, 501 U.S. 429, 434-35 (1991). The Fourth Amendment does not prevent police from making voluntary or consensual contact with persons engaged in constitutionally protected conduct.

    The reason for that is likely stated in this this post:

    Well, tonight the temperature is forecast to be as low as Biden's approval rating, but with wind-chill, it will feel more like Kamala Harris's approval rating...

    Where's the gun and why did it take a month for them to figure out he shot himself in the head?...Some things still don't add up in this case...
