By The Blaze. The lead prosecutor in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial made an extremely puzzling claim involving guns and self-defense during his closing arguments to the jury Monday afternoon. . .
In an obvious affront to the second amendment rights of all Americans, Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger argued that the defendant, Kyle Rittenhouse, gave up his right to self-defense when he chose to bring a gun to the Black Lives Matter riots in the Wisconsin city last summer.
“You can’t claim self-defense against an unarmed man,” Binger stated before adding, “You lose the right to self-defense when you’re the one who brought the gun.” The law does not state, either in Wisconsin or elsewhere, that the self-defense can only be claimed against people who are armed with a gun.
Elsewhere he claimed, “You cannot claim self-defense against a danger you create. If you’re the one threatening others, you lose the right to claim self-defense,” according to Newsweek.

Prosecutor Thomas Binger Attacks Kyle Rittenhouse for Getting Choked Up While Testifying
By Breitbart. Thomas Binger — the lead prosecutor in the murder case against Kyle Rittenhouse — used the 18-year-old’s raw emotions on the witness stand last week as a knock against his character during closing arguments Monday.
“He showed no remorse for the victims, he never tried to help anyone that he hurt,” Binger, who serves as assistant district attorney in the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office, said during closing arguments Monday. “Even on the witness stand — when he testified on Wednesday — he broke down crying about himself, not about anybody that he hurt that night.”
