Kyle Rittenhouse asked a court to return the rifle he used to fatally shoot two protesters in Kenosha, Wis., in 2020 — so he can destroy the firearm, according to his attorney.

Rittenhouse, who was found not guilty on all charges he faced in relation to the shootings in November, killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, then 26, with an assault-style rifle during protests against police brutality.
