St. Louis Second Amendment Rally

St. Louis Second Amendment Rally

St. Louis, Missouri – -(  If you haven’t been on the forums lately, you may not know that St. Louis is having a huge Second Amendment Rally on Feb 27th.

And a couple hours later that day there will be a major Tea Party gathering at the same location.

  • Event Date: Feb. 27th
  • Event Time: 10:00 AM
  • Event Location: The St. Louis river front on the side walk north of the gateway arch.

We want to invite you to come join other concealed carry permit holders to this event. It is perfectly legal to be a CCW permit holder on National Park property and we expect many CCW permit holders will be there to join us!

This event and others like it every year give gun owners an opportunity to voice the importance of our Bill of Rights and to put our elected officials around the state on notice that we are watching them and how they vote on gun laws. 2010 will be a very important year for many elected officials in both parties and there are a number of them who will be showing up to speak at this event. Come out and meet them and hear what they have to say.

Speaking opportunities will only be available to invited guest of the event.

Those who have accepted an invitation are:

  • MO State Rep. Cynthia Davis District 19 (R)
  • MO State Rep. Linda Fischer District 107(D)
    Linda’s MySpace Page
  • MO State Rep. Brian Nieves District 98 (R)
    Brian’s Facebook Page
  • MO State Rep. Mark Parkinson District 16 (R)
  • 3rd District Candidate John Wayne Tucker (R)
  • Dr. Gina Loudon – Candidate for the Missouri Senate (R)
  • Dean Plocher Candidate for the Missouri Senate District 24 (R)

We hope to see many of our members there, as well as fellow members from the Missouri Sport Shooting Association and the Gateway Civil Liberties Alliance. Many of us will attending the 2nd Amendment Rally, then leave to have lunch before returning to attend the Tea Party event starting at 1:30 on the Arch Steps. We hope to see you all there!

All Pro Gun citizens are invited to come join us as we celebrate the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights!

Special thanks to member Marc Perez for coordinating what will be a wonderful event.

The gateway arch is really an impressiv building. Especially the elevators are awesome. I really recommend everybody to check it out.

On the subject of open carry on the Arch grounds. This is from them. Here is the reply I got. No open carry at the Arch. Conceal and don't be stupid! Because the City of Saint Louis has a law prohibiting the open carry of firearms (St, Louis City Revised Code Chapter 15.130) and because Jefferson National Expansion memorial is within the city limits of Saint Louis, only concealed carry firearms will be permissable on the grounds. Federal law continues to prohibit firearms from being carried inside Federal Facilities such as the Arch, Old Court House, or any other office… Read more »


Thanks for the info. I guess I'll be the token unarmed guy, because I'm not willing to be the test case while on vacation… :o)

OC is illegal in the City of St. Louis period. I cannot site a source, but trust me, you cannot open carry in the City of St. Louis. There is not test case to OC of course on NPS property because CCW does not become legal on NPS property till Feb. 22nd 2010. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE THE TEST CASE FOR OC ON NPS PROPERTY! Unless you do want to be the test case in which I recommend you have legal council and bail money immediately available. There is(to the best of my knowledge) no open carry on… Read more »


Can anybody tell me what the general consensus is on open carrying to the event? I'm from the area but haven't lived there in some time, however I will be in St. Louis when the rally is held. I don't have a ccw because the Second Amendment still applies in Wyoming, but any guidance regarding St. Louis law would be appreciated.

I went to the Missouri State Capitol today and had great results for the 2nd amendment rally at the arch. Representative Linda Fischer (D) 107th District and Representative Belinda Harris (D) 110th District will both speak at the rally! This is great news. Both of these fine Missouri State representatives have a great 2nd amendment track record. It will be an honor to introduce them at the Rally at the Arch Feb 27th. This is a rally! Protests will not be tollerated. If people want to protest some thing, get a permit and do it on your time! We all… Read more »

Thanks for planning this Rally, Marc! See you there!

The Second Amendment is not a Republican or a Democrat issue. It belongs to every US Citizen. It is a civil rights issue that can not be taken away.

You must have told your therapist some crazy stuff.

I always wondered why anyone would go to one of these quacks.

I applied for a C.C.W. two and one half years ago. My F.B.I. background check was fine. But it seems that I am Too Crazy, and there for unfit to carry a gun because, I use to drink beer every day after work at home and I had tried pot as a teen. I have never been arrested or charged with a D.W.I. my driving record is clean. I am a law abiding tax payer. My big mistake; I talked to a therapist.
