Daily Mail: "Judge DROPS Kyle Rittenhouse's misdemeanor gun charge..."

 You can find the article, "Judge DROPS Kyle Rittenhouse's misdemeanor gun charge and warns that prosecution's evidence could see the case 'fall like a house of cards' as both sides prepare for closing arguments" here.

    The judge in the Kenosha shooter case has dismissed count 6 from Kyle Rittenhouse's rap sheet – illegal possession of a firearm.

    In the latest blow to the beleaguered prosecution, Judge Bruce Schroeder dropped the charge Monday morning after the defense successfully argued that it is illegal for anyone under 18 to carry a 'short-barreled rifle' - a rifle with a barrel shorter than 16 inches - but it is legal to carry a longer rifle in Wisconsin.

    Rittenhouse was 17 at the time of the shootings and the prosecution was forced to concede that the AR-15 carried by Rittenhouse on August 25, 2020 was more than 16 inches, which is of legal length. 

    'Well then,' Judge Schroeder stated, 'Count six is dismissed.'
