Next Members’ meeting is Tuesday January 7 2020  Location/Directions

Gun Rights Rally Tues April 7 2020 is soon. Read more on MissouriCarry.com

Please make plans to join us in the Capitol Building in Jefferson City on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020 from 10:00am to 1:00pm for the Annual Gun Rights Rally Day.

Join us! Come spend the morning at the capitol to help save our guns and protect our rights.

The anti-gun crowd is always working hard to ban guns and restrict our gun rights.
Your attendance at the rally is critical. Only a strong turnout can help make the difference. Law-abiding gun owners are not the problem. Our rights are not what is wrong.

Be there! Bring others! Tell your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers.

President’s Corner

Steve Marx

Next year, 2020, will be a major election. Being involved in the local and state level campaigns is greatly needed. The consequences can be hazardous to our gun rights if we don’t get involved.
The St. Louis Board of Alderman has passed a bill that requires St. Louis City gun dealers to report to the St. Louis City Police Department the information on any N.I.C.S. check denied gun transfer. This information is already in the hands for the B.A.T.F. It’s up to the federal government to investigate for felony perjury. The previous administration didn’t pursue this tool to keep criminals away from licensed gun dealers. What the St. Louis aldermen have done is redundant, adding one more layer of nitwittery and will prevent nothing.
The influence of “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense” is continuing on the state level.
I encourage everyone to participate with GCLA at gun shows. This is where we get our funds to build up our P.A.C. fund to support local and state candidates. Please volunteer, your help is needed now more than ever. See you at the guns shows and gun rights rallies, 2020 is a big year.
Have fun! Get active!


Steve Marx

President, GCLA
