This is the petition:
Prosecute district attorneys who charged Kyle Rittenhouse with murder under 18 u.s. code § 242
18 USC § 242 provides for the punishment of “Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States…”
The district attorneys in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, despite clear evidence of lawful self-defense, filed murder charges against Rittenhouse. This not only subjects Rittenhouse to unlawful deprivation of rights it creates a chilling effect on others who wish to exercise their specific enumerate right to keep and bear arms in defense of self and others.
The district attorneys and others involved in this unlawful activity should be prosecuted.
The petition requires 150 signatures before it becomes visible on the web site. Then, if the petition receives 100,000 signatures by September 28th 2020 the White House will respond to the petition.
Gun owners cannot constantly play defense. If the best that happens is that charges against Rittenhouse are dropped or he is pardoned he was still punished by the process. It still casts a chilling effect upon the exercise of specific enumerated right.
Even if we win many of the court battles against unconstitutional laws infringing the right of the people to keep and bear arms the criminals who created and enforced those laws suffered no punishment for depriving the people of their rights for years and even decades. This has to stop. It’s time for these criminals to be punished.
