“I’m 19 and just got to speak with leaders of the greatest country on earth! This was an amazing evening where I got to share my story and discuss the importance of the Second Amendment. Even while the radical Left continues to sue me and disparage my name, I know these great leaders have my back,” Rittenhouse said in a statement.

Rittenhouse’s meeting with lawmakers comes nearly one year after he was acquitted of all charges related to his shooting of rioters who were pursing him in Kenosha, Wisconsin in the summer of 2020. The jury found that he acted in self-defense.

The teenager celebrated the anniversary of his acquittal on Twitter.

“One year ago today – closing arguments finished up and we were anxiously waiting for the verdict that would decide my future,” he wrote.
