Five months after the Senate dealt a major blow to President Obama’s gun control agenda, Mark Glaze makes it clear the battle is far from over.
The executive director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns is making his case to the press on a recent Thursday morning. From there, he’s racing to the White House for a meeting with Vice President Biden’s chief of staff, Bruce Reed. Then he’s got to prepare for his trip to Colorado, where New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I), the group’s co-founder, is spending $350,000 to stop Tuesday’s NRA-inspired recall of two state legislators who voted for gun restrictions in March.
It’s all in a day’s work for the 42-year-old head of an association that has emerged as the National Rifle Association’s biggest foe.
“Stopping the NRA in its tracks, where it’s gutting laws that make sense both in Congress and in the states, is job No. 1,” Glaze said in a recent interview with The Hill.
