Rittenhouse also wants back the clothes that he was wearing on the night the shooting happened, the Kenosha News reported.

Family spokesperson David Hancock said the teen wants to destroy the rifle so no one can use it to celebrate the shootings.

He said: That weapon was involved in that. That weapon doesnt belong on a mantle. It doesn’t belong in a museum.

“It belongs where Kyle wants it, and Kyle wants it destroyed.

There’s plenty of people out there who would like to hold these items up, on both sides. That’s nothing Kyle’s interested in.

Rittenhouse wants to get back the ammunition, sling, and magazine from the firearm, the Associated Press reports.

He also wants to retrieve his cellphone, the face mask that he was wearing on the night of the shootings, and a dollar bill.

Cops seized the gun and have held it ever since after Rittenhouse fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber in Wisconsin on August 25, 2020.

Gaige Grosskreutz was injured in the shootings and later took the stand in Rittenhouse’s trial.

Rittenhouse opened fire during the protests campaigning against the shooting of Blake, who was shot by a white police officer.

In November, the teen was acquitted on all charges related to the shootings.

He was charged with five felony counts of first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, and attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

Rittenhouse also faced charges for recklessly endangering safety in the first degree.

He revealed to Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he wanted to give Rosenbaum first aid but was chased away.

‘WANNABE SOLDIER’

Rittenhouse said: After I shoot Mr. Rosenbaum, he tried to grab my gun. I was running away. There was a gunshot behind me (sic).

“After I shoot him, I run around the car because I was going to go render first-aid to him.

I wasnt able to, because then there was a mob forming and calling for my execution to get him and kill him.

And thats when I tried to run to the police line and get to the police, and then I am attacked again.”

Hancock revealed that Rittenhouse’s normal life will include pursuing a career in nursing.

He told Fox6: He is studying pre-requisites at Arizona State University for nursing and he is going to continue that.

“Were going to do everything we can to make sure he can live a normal life moving forward.

Prosecutors portrayed Rittenhouse as a wannabe soldier who had gone looking for trouble that night.

They claimed he was responsible for creating a dangerous situation in the first place by pointing his rifle at demonstrators.

But Rittenhouse testified: I didnt do anything wrong. I defended myself.

Former president Donald Trump said the teen shouldn’t have had to “suffer” during the trial.

He claimed that Rittenhouse would’ve died if it were not for his actions.
