(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – With all of the civil unrest that has exploded across the country this year in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers in Minneapolis, there have been many, many concerning factors that have risen to the surface about the current state of our nation.
One of the most terrifying is centered around our God-given right to defend ourselves when we’re being assaulted, especially by crazed, radical leftists with weapons, which is something that has come under attack in recent months as numerous individuals have used firearms to defend themselves and their property from attacks by Black Lives Matter protesters and members of Antifa.
Take the Kyle Rittenhouse case for example. Rittenhouse was protecting businesses in the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin when he was attacked by leftists who chased him and even attempted to use firearms against him. Rittenhouse used his own weapon to protect himself, killing two individuals who were attacking him.
He’s been charged in the incident, which is a major blow for the Second Amendment and self-defense. However, the man who fired the very first shots that started the whole incident, Joshua Ziminski, 35, has now been charged with disorderly conduct and use of a dangerous weapon for discharging his firearm during the incident back in August.
The Gateway Pundit obtained documentation that revealed that Kenosha detectives investigating the incident got their hands on video evidence that reportedly shows Ziminski “was holding a “was holding a black handgun, which he was holding in his left hand, pointing downward. Detective Howard reports that in reviewing multiple other videos, he was able to see the defendant and Kelly Ziminski, in and around multiple other people on the streets, and the defendant was seen holding the handgun down at his side in said videos.”
Another video was released showing Ziminisky and his wife walking close by a fire that was lit near the parking lot area of the Ultimate Gas Station. In yet other footage, Ziminsky’s right arm can be seen. This footage was captured close to 63rd street and Sheridan Road, which is located in Kenosha. One of the detectives points out that you can see Ziminsky point the firearm up at the sky. You can see a muzzle flash in the footage, as well as hear the sound of the gunshot. More footage shows the couple walking away from the area later on.
Don’t believe a rioter fired the first shot? There’s video. We must demand media covers Kyle Rittenhouse’s story honestly. Kyle was the victim, not the aggressor. Just like Covington Catholic we can’t let them destroy an innocent young man. pic.twitter.com/2oxLCecADX

The report goes on to reveal that when police spoke with Ziminski and his wife, both of them confessed that he did indeed fire off a “warning shot” into the air.
This revelation really adds some heft to the idea that Rittenhouse was scared for his life and totally acting in a manner consistent with self-defense when he opened fire on the two rioters who were coming after him.
Folks, at the core of this case is the leftist assault against the Second Amendment. The radical left in this country doesn’t want you and I to have access to weapons that can defend us, our property, our families, or our liberty. It’s much easier to force compliance among the general public when you don’t have to worry about them defending themselves with weapons.
We have the God-given right to defend our lives and property. The Founders understood this, which is why the Second Amendment exists in the first place. Here’s to hoping that those involved in the Rittenhouse case understand this truth.
