Welcome to the GCLA
The purpose and objective of Gateway Civil Liberties Alliance, is to preserve and protect the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.
If you are an individual who is tired of seeing our constitutional rights trampled upon, it’s time to join an organization dedicated to the preservation of the Bill of Rights as originally intended by our founding fathers.
We hope you will find the information and links in this site helpful in preserving your right to protect yourself. Be sure to check out our newsletter for the latest news about the GCLA and gun rights.
The Gun Drawing and the annual election for members of the Board of Directors of GCLA will be held at this meeting.
Please make plans to join us in the Capitol Building in Jefferson City on Wednesday, April 28th, 2021 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.
2021 is starting out with hope for improving. At the time of writing this column, the committee is hoping to get plans in place for a 2021 Gun Rights Rally in the Jefferson City Capitol Rotunda, working with Kevin Jamison and the Western Missouri Shooters Alliance. GCLA will keep you informed on any positive development for 2021.
On January 19th a hearing on the pre-filed Senate Bill 39 (the Second Amendment Preservation Act) will be held. We hope to have a couple of GCLA members attend to be a part of the Pro side. The bill is about not going along with Missouri enforcing anti Second Amendment edicts and directives from outside Missouri State legislative action. GCLA will keep you informed.
On the Federal level the new director of the BATF is showing her anti Second Amendment bias. She is trying to go after pistols with an arm brace. She is classifying them as short barrel rifles which requires a $200.00 tax to own or transfer. This is going to end up on court. This will affect handicapped shooters that need to have an arm brace for support to let them shoot well.
The new year will start with challenges and a chance to help keep Missouri a solid pro gun rights state. Stay informed of the goings on in Jefferson City and participate in any hearings that may affect our gun rights in Missouri .
GCLA’s purpose is to preserve and protect the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America by:
- Monitoring and acting on pending legislation at the local, state, and federal level.
- Encouraging voter registration and participation in the political process.
- Promoting public and personal safety, education and training, and the defense of the nation.
- GCLA holds a monthly members’ meeting which often features a guest speaker, the fielding of open questions, sharing of news and information, and intelligent discussion.
