Kyle Rittenhouse says he used coronavirus stimulus check to buy AR-15 used in fatal shooting

Incredibly low bar for unemployment in Illinois. You just have to earn $1600 in the last 12 months and lose your job without quitting. Technically any kid old enough to work a seasonal job in Illinois can draw unemployment when they're laid off.

I think the intention is for people who actually need the money to get it, like you know, single mothers and people who need money to buy food to stay alive. I doubt it's intended for teenagers who live with their parents, who are then going to spend it all to illegally buy firearms. Seems to me that Kyle was taking advantage of a social safety net when he ethically had no business doing so.
