Mark D. Jones was a panelist at a recent gun related town hall in Northlake, Illinois. He was quick to interrupt pro-gun panelists and rud/cocky throughout the event. You can judge for yourself in the provided links (videos of the meetings in 4 parts):
That’s him circled in red. He’s you’re typical egomaniac that thinks civilians don’t “need” AR-15’s, red flag laws are awesome, he’s an “expert”, etc. so let’s start from the beggining, his background:
Pretty darn impressive, don’t you think? So, a former ATF agent (explosives division btw, not guns) retired in 2011 and began consulting. Let’s review some more. From the DOJ:

What’s SUPGV? States United to Prevent Gun Violence. Who are they?
States United to Prevent Gun Violence is the mothership of all state level Ceasefire organizations (Examples are WAVE Fund Wisconsin, Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (in which he’s a consultant for), CeasefirePA, the Virgina Center For Public safety, Washington Ceasefir, etc). His wife/partner is the current PRESIDENT of the main organization

So former ATF agent Mark consults for gun control orgs and his significant other is the president of one. WOW!
Mark also has some other interesting connections, such as Center For American Progress (John Podesta’s organization).
It’s clear Mark is a gun grabber and gun grabbing is the business of both him and his partner. But what else should we know about the guy that worked for the ATF, hates guns (for us civilians), and makes a living consulting for the top gun control organizations?
