Key Issues

Rumor:

The Kenosha shooter was part of a militia and exerting his Second Amendment rights.

Reality:

Wisconsin militia law doesn’t cover vigilantes.

Wisconsin state law says that any person who employs a militia for the protection of property and is not authorized by the state is guilty of a felony. As a minor resident of Illinois, the shooting suspect is not a member of any Wisconsin state militia. His actions were a direct violation of Wisconsin law.
