Man Who Bought AR-15 For Rittenhouse Reaches Plea Deal

The state of Wisconsin on Friday entered into a plea bargain with Dominick Black, the man who obtained the AR15 later used by Kyle Rittenhouse to defend himself.

Under the terms of the deal, Black will receive a non-criminal citation, which will have him pay $2000 as a fine. No criminal charges whatsoever will be on his record, and no further legal action will be taken in the matter.

According to the Washington Examiner, the state of Wisconsin had previously charged Black with two counts of providing a firearm to a minor, because Rittenhouse was 17 years old at the time he received the gun from Black.

Black pleaded not guilty at the time, arguing that if the gun were legal for Rittenhouse to possess, then it had to be also legal for someone to give the gun to him.

It also apparently doesn’t matter legally that the gun was later used in a fatal shooting, as this was after the fact.

The plea agreement, although having been filed on Friday, will still need the relevant judge – the same Judge Bruce Schroeder who presided over the Rittenhouse trial – to sign off on it. Most people are seeing that final step of the process as a probable rubber-stamp type procedure.

  1. THIS IS ABSOLTE BS AND HOPEFULLY THE JUDGE WILL NULLIFY THE AGREEMENT AND DISMISS THE WHOLE THING. OR RULE NOT GUILTY AS CHARGED AND PREVENT THE STATE FROM GETTING $2000. THIS IS MORE OVER REACH FROM THE INCOMPIDENT DA

    • Absolutely agree Bill. This is a travesty! His attorney should have been fired! He should have taken his chances with a jury verdict. So many more people today are pro gun than two years ago.

    • They are trying to set a false precedent. Nothing was done cwrong here except for those who tried to kill Rittenhouse.

  2. Why in the hell was he even charged with a crime? Something really stinks about this and it’s not the law abiding gun owner.
    This man needs to sue the DA for violating his rights as an American citizen to own a firearm. If ever there was justification for loaning it to someone , protecting a family business this is a prime example.
    This DA needs to be run out of town

  3. Bill stout is out to lunch. If Dominick Black had not supplied Rittenhouse with the weapon, two guys would not have been murdered. $1000/per life is mighty cheap.

  4. Wrong. It was totally and absolutely illegal for Rittenhouse to possess the gun or for anyone to give him a gun. The judge simply was incompetent. There are 4 valid exemptions to the restriction on minors being in possession. Rittenhouse did not qualify for any of them. And the short barrel reference was ONLY to disqualify the hunting exemption. It had nothing to do with any or the rest of the law or its exemption. All it did was prevent a minor from claiming the hunting exemption is the firearm was too short.
    The laws is good in that for the very reason Rittenhouse showed extremely poor judgement in bringing a rifle to a riot.
    The only problem was a judge who clearly can not read and understand simple statutes.
