Kyle’s Mom: My Son Would Be Dead ‘If He Didn’t Have That Gun’

Wendy Rittenhouse

( – With words that many observers described as heartwrenching and highly emotional, Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother told NBC Nightly News on Sunday that her son was just trying to help when he went to Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer to protect businesses from Black Lives Matters protesters.

According to Wendy Rittenhouse, as reported by the Daily Mail, “He brung that gun for protection and to this day if he didn’t have that gun my son would have been dead.”

Wendy Rittenhouse stated that Kyle was in a fight for his own life and that it was either her son who would live or the mob of BLM protesters who were chasing him and trying to kill him.

“He went down there to help. And he was chased by a mob,” Wendy Rittenhouse told NBC News.

She also indicated that Kyle is now being treated for PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) due to all that happened on that August night.

According to Wendy, “Twelve people have my son’s life in their hands. I will always stand by him.”

What do you think? What is your opinion? Do you agree with Wendy Rittenhouse, Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, when she says that the mob would have killed Kyle if he hadn’t been armed with a gun and able to defend himself? Why or why not?
