Original title: American young man was found not guilty for shooting and killing 2 people, gun retailer took the opportunity to sell
Overseas Network, November 23rd In August 2020, Rittenhouse, a white American young man, shot and killed two people during an anti-racism and anti-police violent law enforcement demonstration in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The court announced on November 19 this year that all five felony charges suffered by Rittenhouse were not convicted. This verdict has caused great controversy in the United States. U.S. media reported that some U.S. gun retailers took the opportunity to launch a firearm sales promotion.
According to a US media report under CBS on the 22nd, a gun store and shooting range in Texas sent customers a (Rittenhouse) “not guilty” promotional text message, stating that the big sale will begin this Saturday (27th). Continue until Thanksgiving. The products promoted this time include guns, optics, backpacks and gun parts. Shop owner Thomas Bosch said, “We celebrate (Rittenhouse’s) acquittal from the perspective of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and his right to defend himself.”
Some Americans use the Rittenhouse case to promote the storeDo not understand the practice. One of the customers said, “I really respect this shop and bought my first gun from there. But as a black youth and also a young business owner, this didn’t make me feel bad about the justice system. To generate confidence, I don’t like you to take advantage of this kind of thing.” Bosch insists that most customers support and understand the store’s practices, so it will not change the current decision.
US “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People” (NAACP)James Glass, chairman of the Houston chapter, said he understands that business owners need to promote sales and strive to make money, but he warned that this approach may further divide the American community.
