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

The 2019 Gun Rights Rally is history. Tuesday April 16th was the day to be in the capitol rotunda in Jefferson City.
There was a good crowd of over 120 gathered, to help make a difference in this year’s legislation for our gun rights.
GCLA had a table passing out “Guns Save Lives” buttons, “NRA MOM” buttons and fresh printouts of bills that deserve passing. Chris Brown put together the printout which contained two House bills, HB641 & HB643, for support of concealed carry on public transportation, and Senate bill SB039 for the same.
Representative Ron Hicks, Representative Adam Schnelting and Senator Bob Onder deserve a load shout out for supporting our gun rights here in Missouri. With these bills is Campus Carry Bill HB575, sponsored by Representative Dean Dohrman, which passed the House on April 2nd. We need to tell our Senators to get behind the House bill and get it passed.
The main element to all these bills is the language, “CCW Holders only”! This is the only way these have a chance of passing both chambers and being signed into law.
The lineup of speakers at the rally was inspiring. What impressed me most was the lineup of Senators and Representatives that took time to address the large group. It’s certainly gratifying that to know we are an important factor in good legislation getting passed.
It was nice to once again meet members of our sister groups from over the state. A real treat to once again to meet Shelia, a past president of WMSA from the Kansas City area.
This was a great day to support Missouri gun rights! See you at the next one.

Have fun! Get active!

Steve Marx

President, GCLA
