Rittenhouse was 17 years old when he shot three men, killing two, during riots in Kenosha last year after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Rittenhouse was acquitted last month on all charges related to the shootings.
“Hindsight being 20/20, probably not the best idea to go down there. Can’t change that, but I defended myself and that’s what happened,” said Rittenhouse on The Blaze’s You Are Here, hosted by Elijah Schaffer and Sydney Watson.
“Everyone should be able to defend themselves,” added Rittenhouse. “I think it’s a God-given right, the right to self-defense. That’s what was on trial in Wisconsin, the right to self-defense.”
