On Wednesday, Tennessee state Rep. Bruce Griffey presented a self-defense bill, which he named Kyle’s Law, in honor of Kyle Rittenhouse. The Republican lawmaker presented the legislation that would require the state of Tennessee to reimburse costs to defendants who were found not guilty of homicide charges due to having acted in self-defense.

Griffey also presented a proclamation to honor Rittenhouse as “a hero who selflessly defended his community, protected businesses, and acted lawfully in the face of lawlessness” and “a symbol of things that the Left is trying to destroy — our Constitution and our Second Amendment gun rights” who “provides a light of hope that we can fight back against the enemies of our Constitution and win.” [tweet_embed] January 20, 2022[/tweet_embed] “Kyle Rittenhouse had to defend himself not only against a first-degree murder charge over the course of a year-plus politically motivated prosecution and a two-week jury trial but also against widespread defamation and false branding by corrupt media outlets, simply for exercising his American God-given right to self-defense,” Griffey told WZTV. On Nov. 19, Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five charges, including intentional homicide, in relation to the fatal shooting of two men and the injuring of a third during the unrest on Aug. 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in which the teenager says he fired a rifle as rioters chased him. Rittenhouse testified during his trial that he had acted in self-defense. In the meantime, Facebook has lifted previous restrictions that prevented users from searching for posts about Kyle Rittenhouse and from praising the teenager. Users will be allowed to search for posts and share their "support" for Rittenhouse after the 18-year-old was found not guilty on November 19 of intentional homicide and other charges related to the fatal shootings of two men and injuring of a third during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year, according to CNN.
