Security & Firearms Bio
Glenn has been clandestinely involved with firearms since the 1980s, whether by writing articles in support of the average citizen’s right to bear arms, acting as a firearms instructor or as an outspoken activist, most notably as the founder of New York City Guns.
He is no longer clandestine about his firearms & security background. He has reached that point in life where the fear of being discriminated against is outweighed by his perceived duty to stand up for the side of truth – of having the fundamental right of self defense against any force that would intend harm to family and loved ones.
Glenn was a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed against Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the City of New York over the exorbitant fees associated with the exercising of our Second Amendment rights in New York City. The case was appealed to the US Supreme Court, but in June 2014 SCOTUS declined to hear the case. Details of that case, Kwong vs. Bloomberg can be found here.
