Isn’t it one of the things people do in these video games—try and kill everyone else with your guns?

Yeah, in the video game. It’s just a video game. It’s not real life.

Prosecutor Bingley “Hollow-point bullets are designed to hit the animal that they’re being shot at, let’s say a deer for example, and explode inside that body, correct?”

No, I don’t think so.

The judge jumped in, “When you say explode, are you saying expand or explode? Because there are such things as exploding bullets.”

“Let me rephrase—Mr. Rittenhouse, what is your understanding of what hollow-point bullets are

“I don’t think people use hollow-point bullets for hunting deer.”

Greg Price tweeted the video clip, saying: “This trial is such a clown show that the judge had to LITERALLY CORRECT the prosecutor on his understanding of ammunition types,”


Since a hollow-point bullet expands when it enters soft tissue, it creates a larger wound channel inside the target, increasing the chances that incapacitating damage will be done.
