Closing arguments began Monday morning in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
18-year-old Rittenhouse is charged with double murder in the shooting deaths of two Antifa-BLM protesters last year during leftist riots that destroyed the Kenosha business district.
The court earlier Monday dismissed the gun charge against Kyle Rittenhouse.
Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger’s said Rittenhouse “provoked other people” simply because he was carrying a firearm in his closing argument to the court Monday.
“You lose the right to self-defense when you’re the one who brought the gun,” Binger said.

Rittenhouse shot and killed convicted pedophile Rosenbaum in August 2020 during the Kenosha riots.
Rittenhouse killed Joseph Rosenbaum who was indicted on 11 counts of child molestation and inappropriate sexual activity around children, including anal rape.
The victims were five boys ranging in age from nine to 11 yrs old.

Rosenbaum, 36, of Kenosha died after he was shot in the head when he chased Rittenhouse and tried to grab the barrel of his gun during the Kenosha riots.
Rittenhouse also shot and killed 26-year-old Anthony Huber.
Anthony Huber beat Kyle Rittenhouse with a skateboard before he was shot dead.
Rittenhouse was being chased by a BLM mob when he tripped and fell. At this point, Huber bashed him in the back of the head/neck with a skateboard. Rittenhouse defended himself and shot Huber in the chest. Huber immediately dropped and died.
26-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz had his arm partially blown off after he aggressively rushed at then-17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who had just tripped and fallen while being chased by the BLM mob.
Grosskreutz had a gun in his hand when he ran up to Rittenhouse, so in self defense, the 17-year-old discharged his weapon, blew off part of Grosskreutz’s arm, saving his own life.
