The judge already ruled. Who cares what the AG thinks.From what I know about state AG opinions, they can only be requested from someone with "standing" such as a Wisconsin state legislature or someone else within state government. I don't believe I can make the request of any of the Legislature since I'm not a Wisconsin resident but I think it would be a good thing, either way, because what I've read thus far indicates that the exception that Kyle's defense used to get the judge to dismiss the gun charge in actuality originated as an "exception" to the hunting exception. If that is true, then it should not have been applicable to the charge that was dismissed.
Even if the WI AG determines it is not solely applicable to the hunting exception, at least there would be more clarity than we have now. I read just today that students where Kyle is enrolled online want him banned from campus and his enrollment revoked.
There are anti-gun people who sincerely would have preferred that instead of defending his life with the firearm in his possession that he had ended up on the losing end. Then there are other pro second amendment people who will support certain people's right to to use lethal force to defend not just their own lives, but the lives of others and in some cases, property among other tangible/non-tangible things.
I fall in the middle and prefer clarity, consistency and fairness in the rendering of "justice" and admit that Kyle having lied about being a EMT and that he was there is Wisconsin to volunteer his services as an EMT demonstrates to me an appalling character flaw and disconnect from reality regarding the type of person he truly is that everyone just seemed to look the other way on.
