Your statement presented as an open and closed case that "Kyle was illegally carrying a rifle" is framing, thus not based in fact.

The rifle that Kyle had was loaned to him by a Wisconsin resident. This fact will be easily proven by authorities obtaining hte serial number from the weapon. Source. The claims by many that he carried it across state lines and that he possessed it in Illinois illegally without a FOIP card were more baseless accusations.

The laws in Wisconsin are written such that they do not make it illegal for Kyle, a 17 year old, to openly carry a rifle. If you want to argue the ambiguity of this statement you can call this lawyer John Monroe, a Dawsonville, Georgia, lawyer who specializes in gun-rights cases who made this statement to A Chicago Tribune newspaper.

Like every legal matter, we won't know the result until we wait for litigation to finalize.
