.... I'm still not clear on whether or not he was allowed to have the rifle there at 17.
Same here. Having read the specific statute (948.60 Possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18) a number of times its a confusing, to the layman, issue that isn't clear if one's in violation of it or not. Their laws on illegal possession leave a one or two year gap that Rittenhouse, for better or worse, fell into which makes this particular question so difficult for we laypersons to answer. Ultimately it comes down to this subsection, and a judge's/juries interpretation of it and what they divine the WI legislature really meant when they enacted it:

(3)(c) This section applies only to a person under 18 years of age who possesses or is armed with a rifle or a shotgun if the person is in violation of s. 941.28 or is not in compliance with ss. 29.304 and 29.593. This section applies only to an adult who transfers a firearm to a person under 18 years of age if the person under 18 years of age is not in compliance with ss. 29.304 and 29.593 or to an adult who is in violation of s. 941.28.

OF course the person who gave him the gun is also staring down potential charges as well but they too are in limbo it appears based on how it turns out for Rittenhouse on this particular charge.

I find it funny that they want to put that his arrest (with other listed offenses) YET they wont go after the felon who is actually A FELON who was in POSSESSION of a firearm which he was going to use to kill this kid. 

FCK'ed up out there and these people think they're normal.
The greatest Danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution.

Yep you have video/photo proof of a felon in possession of a firearm. Yet crickets on that issue. In fact there were a number of people supposedly not able to legally possess firearms due to being felons that night that were caught on video doing so.

And now a 19 year old who gave the gun to Rittenhouse has now been charged in Wisconsin.

Man Charged With Two Felonies For Giving 17-Year-Old Kenosha Gunman Weapon Used In Fatal Shootings
https://dailycaller.com/2020/11/09/dominick-black-charged-gun-kyle-rittenhouse-kenosha-shooting/

Dominick Black, 19, was charged with two counts of intentionally giving a dangerous weapon to a person under the age of 18, causing death, according to NBC 5. Black allegedly gave Kyle Rittenhouse, who was not legally able to purchase a firearm, a rifle that he purchased with Rittenhouse’s money, the criminal complaint from Kenosha County District Attorney reportedly says.

Update on Rittenhouse. He/his lawyers was able to post the $2 million dollar cash bond.

Kyle Rittenhouse released from custody on $2 million cash bond
https://www.tmj4.com/news/local-news/kyle-rittenhouse-released-from-custody-on-2-million-cash-bond

A spokesperson with the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department announced that Rittenhouse's attorney paid the $2 million cash bond that was set by a judge earlier this month.

Rittenhouse, thus, is no longer in custody at the Kenosha County Jail, according to the spokesperson.

On Oct. 30, an Illinois judge OK'ed the extradition of Rittenhouse back to Wisconsin to face homicide charges.

Bit more on how the gun Rittenhouse used was purchased.

Friend of Kyle Rittenhouse who is charged with buying gun for the 17-year-old told police the teen was 'freaking out' and said 'I'm going to spend the rest of my life in prison' after he shot dead two protesters
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8970683/Friend-Kyle-Rittenhouse-told-police-teen-freaking-shootings.html

Dominick Black, now 19, told police that he had bought the AR-15-style rifle for Rittenhouse at a hardware store and kept it for the teen at his home, planning to transfer ownership when he turned 18. Rittenhouse has said he used money from a $1,200 pandemic stimulus check to pay for the rifle.
.....
In a jailhouse interview with the Washington Post published on Thursday, Rittenhouse revealed that he had paid for the rifle with money from a government stimulus check.

The money came through after he had been furloughed from his job as a YMCA lifeguard due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rittenhouse said.

Rittenhouse said the stimulus check amounted to $1,200. Rifles of the type he bought retail anywhere from $700 to $2,000.
