Gun Rights Rally Day April 16th 2019 is soon. Read more on MissouriCarry.com


Please make plans to join us in the Capitol Building in Jefferson City on Tuesday, April 16th, 2019 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

2018 has come to a close and it’s time to reflect.

The rallies in Jefferson City in the Capitol Rotunda come to mind. Last year was marked by good attendance at the rally. The difference this makes in our efforts to counter the nitwittery of the “Moms Demand Gun Sense” is tremendous. Don’t kid yourself, this group is dedicated to denying you our rights given to us by our creator. Their presence at the Webster Groves 4th of July parade was a reality check. Thanks to Chris Brown and about 100 NRA members and GCLA people, our opinion was well represented. The sight of a large army transport vehicle decorated with American flags and NRA banners proved there are still normal people in the St. Louis area that care about our freedoms and rights.

The rights we have can disappear in a jiffy.

The group called “Women’s Voices Raised for Social Justice” is opposed to legally carrying of your personal safety in the state capitol. Many of us that attended rallies in the capitol, that have Concealed Carry endorsements, are allowed to keep our personal safety on our person by showing our CCW and state ID. The capitol rotunda was the safest place to be on that day. These groups like “Moms Demand Gun Sense” and
“Women’s Voices Raised for Social Justice” are well organized and well funded by the Bloomberg fortune. 2019 will have many opportunities to show support for what we believe.

Get out there and be active. It’s great to make a difference.


If we/you don’t care, who will?

Have fun! Get active!

Steve Marx

President, GCLA
