Rittenhouse appeared with Brandon Herrera, who also makes online content on guns under the handle TheAKGuyInc, to make the announcement. Rittenhouse said he has “some great content that [he] looks forward to making” for his audience and the announcement video showed clips of him at the range and firing from a helicopter.
In November of 2021 Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges related to an incident that saw him use an AR-15 to defend his life during a Black Lives Matter riot.
The trial was to determine whether or not Rittenhouse acted in self-defense when he was, as he and one of the men he shot testified, pursued by a mob of angry rioters bearing weapons.
Rittenhouse has become a frequent target of the far-left media and triggered leftists, who have consistently smeared him with false accusations despite his proven innocence.
Recently, the man who “shot first” that night was charged with 7 felonies.
