TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie doesn’t see his new push for gun reform as going up against the NRA — in fact, he says there’s good reason for the group to help him get it done.
Blake was on TMZ Live Wednesday when he told us he’s planning to hit up NRA leaders about his initiative to get Congress to enact universal background checks. He told us the vast majority of the NRA’s rank and file members support it … so he’s hoping the org gets on board with his “End Gun Violence Together” campaign.
Blake has said the Thousand Oaks bar mass shooting sparked his company’s interest in taking a stand. He kicked things into high gear last week announcing on ‘The Tonight Show’ that TOMS will donate $5 million to several organizations working to end gun violence.
He’s proudly touting, and rightfully so, the technology on toms.com that makes it simpler than ever to mail a postcard to your elected officials, demanding they back universal background checks.
As for getting the NRA’s support — he explained why it could be a huge win-win for gun owners and the country, as a whole.
