During closing arguments in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, the prosecution lawyer pointed an AR-15 directly at the jury with his finger on the trigger.
He broke every law of gun safety, and Twitter users exploded with reaction.
“What’s wrong with this picture?” begins Beth Baumann on Twitter.
“He didn’t check to make sure it was clear. He has his finger on the trigger. Gun is pointed at people (likely the jury)” she tweeted.

Binger put the lives of every juror at risk by brandishing a firearm with his finger on the trigger. He must be indicted immediately!
