During Monday’s closing arguments in the nationally covered trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger pointed a rifle at people in the room while placing his finger on the trigger.

Binger was attempting to illustrate Rittenhouse allegedly provoking people by being armed.
The moment quickly went viral online as many people mocked the prosecutor for his poor firearm etiquette.
Some Twitter users noted Alec Baldwin just killed a person on a movie set with a gun he presumed to be empty.

The prosecutor Thomas Binger held an AR-15 in the courtroom today to “demonstrate” what Kyle Rittenhouse did in Kenosha. 🤦🏻— Storm_Chaser (@StmCh_) November 15, 2021
