Second Amendment Rights Rallies Scheduled Across US on April 14th

Pro-Gun Rally

In response to the recent “March for Our Lives” a pro-Second Amendment group named the “The National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans” has scheduled Second Amendment/Pro-Gun rallies across the country on April 14th. Let's take a look at some of the details.

Word of these gatherings was announced on The NCCPA's Facebook Page recently, stating that they will be gathering together pro-gun Americans to express their feelings on recent public displays and political actions targeting the second amendment. These rallies will take place in each of the 50 state capitals on the 14th.

This set of gatherings was started by a West Virginia man named David Clayton who explained his reasoning behind starting this movement along with details about it in an interview he did with “The Liberty Den.”

If you are interested in these rallies and would like to show your support of the Second Amendment, Mr. Clayton has organized times and places for each rally in each state capital on the NCCPA's Facebook page. Most of these rallies will take place at the states' capitol buildings themselves. Already several of the states have respondents in the 4 digits so it looks like there should be some real numbers for these get-togethers

Unfortunately, this takes place the same weekend as the USCCA's Concealed Carry Expo that most of our team will be attending. This is unfortunate because we cannot afford to have a poor turnout for anything we do, and the Expo will attract several thousands of people from across the country.

If you are not already joining at the USCCA Expo from April 13th to April 15th, we highly recommend visiting the rally nearest to you as a show of support for your Second Amendment rights. There is strength in numbers, and it's about time we made our voices heard.

Make sure to visit the NCCPA's Facebook page for further information and updates on the matter and let them know if you will be standing with them on April 14th!

What do you think of these rallies? Will you be attending the one nearest to where you live? Let us know in the comments below.

About Craig Martin

Craig Martin grew up in the unincorporated town of Lewis, Wisconsin. From a young age, Craig was introduced to guns, as he was tasked with defending his backwood home’s wiring from a scourge of red squirrels.

Ever the animal lover, though; Craig couldn’t let these creatures die needlessly. So he would take his kills and leave them for the foxes, coyotes, and bears to eat at a deer feeder his grandfather built around their home.

His lifestyle made Craig understand that guns are a tool and ever since, has spread the word about how firearms are not a menace, like the red squirrel, but an item to help people. He instils this in every article he writes for USA Firearm Training.

      Linda search on Facebook nccpa. Check for a local chapter in your area in the pinned post

  3. Kathy on April 7, 2018 at 1:33 pm

    North Carolina! Where in Raleigh? I will be there!

    • Kev on April 13, 2018 at 4:34 pm

      Halifax mall Raleigh NC 2pm

  4. Rj owens on April 7, 2018 at 2:49 pm

    It’s too bad there aren’t smaller gatherings across the states. Not everybody has the means or time to drive that far.
    I’m certain that many more would support this event, such as myself.

    • Travis on April 7, 2018 at 4:26 pm

      Rj look up nccpa on Facebook. Find the chapter in your area. You may find someone close to you willing to give you a ride.

    • J.T. Taylor on April 10, 2018 at 7:12 pm

      I agree. Even gatherings or a Rally at your County’s Courthouse would be nice. After all, that’s where the “grass roots” of local legislators conduct their business. If every Rally where held at every County’s Courthouse, that would make an impression on all our local politicians and local law makers.

    • Janis McMahon on April 10, 2018 at 7:20 pm

      I agree!!

  5. LaRisa Estes on April 7, 2018 at 5:45 pm

    Wish there were some close to NE MS. I know there would people from AL, MS and possibly TN.

  6. Kevin McCann on April 7, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Where is rally near Cleveland Ohio ?

  7. Bill OSULLIVAN on April 8, 2018 at 12:01 am

  8. Samantha on April 8, 2018 at 7:59 am

    Is there one in nyc?

    • Mick on April 11, 2018 at 12:08 pm

      Do you people know the Capital of the state you reside in? Capital!

  9. Jacky McDuffy on April 8, 2018 at 8:57 am

    I wish it was where there would be a gathering at every courthouse! I believe there would be lots of people that would attend! Maybe one could be scheduled that way! How would we go about getting one scheduled!

    • Dave on April 8, 2018 at 11:17 am

      Organize one…that’s what we’re doing up in northern Michigan.

    • Kris Kord on April 8, 2018 at 4:32 pm

      There are a couple reasons why these rallies are not organized to happen at multiple courthouses throughout the state.

      The first is impact. It is much more impactful to have a couple thousand people at the state capitol than to have a couple hundred show up to each county’s courthouse, even if the overall number of people throughout the state is greater. Part of that is because driving to a location that is not local to you shows you care enough about the issue to make the sacrifice of time and expense to make it to that location. Part of it is because media will not be able to make it to all of the events. There will be several courthouses that only see coverage from their local media/newspaper, if that. The bigger media outlets are likely to only cover one or two of the rallies that happen in the major cities within the state.

      Second, attempting to find leadership to organize one statewide rally can be difficult enough for someone who is trying to organize a rally that happens on the same day nationwide. Attempting to find leadership for each and every county, get them all on the same page, get speakers for each event, sound, permits, and everything else that comes along with organizing rallies, can be close to impossible. This is especially the case in the short amount of time that these rallies were pulled together. We still have a few states that have nothing scheduled because we were not able to find someone willing to head up the rally in that state. To try to deal with that at a county level would be a nightmare.

      • J.T. Taylor on April 10, 2018 at 7:22 pm

        After further thought after reading this thread, I agree. It’s much more impressive to have thousands show up at your Capital than small crowds at local County Courthouses. After all, we are traveling on our own accord….NOT BEING BUSSED IN OR BEING COMPENSATED THROUGH PAY-OFFS to appear at a Rally. This will be genuine and NOT A STAGED event!!! We aren’t LIBTARDS!!! We’re PATRIOTS and believing in our freedoms and way of life!!!! In other words….WE ARE NORMAL FUNCTIONING SANE PEOPLE!!!!

  10. Chris on April 8, 2018 at 10:57 am

    Where is the rally point for Austin, Texas or a POC i can call to find out

  11. Debi on April 8, 2018 at 11:27 am

    Is there a rally being held in N California? If not how can we start one?

    • Bill on April 9, 2018 at 1:26 am

      Ok I’m in for N.Cal where and when

  12. Lori Nance on April 8, 2018 at 12:24 pm

    We need you for impact. Go to FB page.of NCCPA…then find your state for details. There you can plan…form car pools

  13. Ollie Renee Lovelace on April 8, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    I’m ready & from Iuka. Let’s do this!

  14. Peter on April 8, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    Why not have something in conjunction with USCCA’s Concealed Carry Expo, to support from that location?

  15. Theresa on April 8, 2018 at 8:32 pm

    Attending the pro-2nd Amendment rally is more important than attending any other liberty minded event because the 2nd Amendment is under direct assault right now and all other rights will be lost if the 2nd Amendment is crushed!!! A pro gun expo is not as important as this event! We need to unite and show solidarity for our right to bear arms!

  16. Danny on April 8, 2018 at 9:25 pm

    Where is a rally being held at in missour.

  17. Kathy Andersen on April 9, 2018 at 12:41 am

    Hoping to find info for WA State and where, when in Olympia. I saw 5:30, somewhere on here, but also show up at 1:30. Need clarification. Already mssg’d many, using this post. Hope we can pull huge amount of people. Seattle and upper surrounding areas are liberal. Demo’s been running this state too long!

    • Craig Martin on April 10, 2018 at 9:30 am

      The information about Washington’s rally can be found on this page.

    • Dennis on April 12, 2018 at 8:23 pm

      I agree Kathy it’s time that Inslee and his cronies are kicked out of the legislature in common sense rational people come up with Solutions and not just blame the gun for everything that’s gone wrong in society

  18. Michael on April 9, 2018 at 2:53 am

    Maybe George Soros will bus us to the rally.

  19. Lorrie McCartu on April 9, 2018 at 9:08 am

    Would love to attwnd but the state capital is 8 hours away. Why not habe major cities. I live in Las Vegas and this would be a purfect place to have one.

  20. Steve C. Decker on April 9, 2018 at 10:42 am

    How come the clash with the Conceal-Carry Expo?

    • Jacob Paulsen on April 9, 2018 at 1:32 pm

      Great question! Likely the organizer of the rally was unaware of the expo.

  21. June Griffin on April 9, 2018 at 1:25 pm

    The Tenn. Committee for the Bill of Rights has stood firmly for all these Rights since the Bicentennial Committee for the Bill of Rights was organized in 1991.What needs to be done is a Declaration of Intent to keep Arms without exception and this delivered to every law enforcement agent in the County effected.

    Suggested text: Considering the great price paid for our liberties by veterans from 1620 to now, WE the PEOPLE of ______County hereby serve respectful notice that we will not allow our Second Article to the Bill of Rights to be impeded or destroyed or violated, under any pretense whatever, whether isolated within an individual’s home or wherever he may have personal jurisdiction and ownership. This Notice of Intent is without reservation and will pay whatever personal price is necessary to preserve our Rights and Ownership. Signed ______

  22. June Griffin on April 9, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    Where might rallies be expected in Tennessee?

  23. Larry williams on April 9, 2018 at 10:24 pm

    Use this link to find the meeting place in your state.

  24. Linda on April 10, 2018 at 1:33 am

    Am I correct in a summing that Boise Idaho’s is @12:pm in acordince with your time lines for my state on your map? Also is it still @ the capital building?

  25. Dylan on April 10, 2018 at 7:53 am

    I live in the greensboro nc area so where is there going to be s rally that is closest to me. I don’t have Facebook so o can’t check that way. Thanks for anyone that can help.

    • Joshua Gillem on April 10, 2018 at 9:23 am

      It’s going to be in the state capitol.

  26. B on April 10, 2018 at 8:07 am

    Wow, seems like nobody knows where to go.
    Thanks alot guys, I’d really like to go but my capitol is on the other end of the state, which is about an 8hour drive. Couldn’t hold one on the other end of the state too. What the hell.

    • Joshua Gillem on April 10, 2018 at 1:55 pm

      I agree, it’s really unorganized. We are trying our best to inform everyone, but it’s not our event. Thanks for understanding.


  27. Rita Tierney on April 10, 2018 at 10:05 am

    i love this idea and want to participate once in Maine . how ever let us please please not leave the garbage that the liberals do take your signs and garbage with you when you leave .

  28. The Iceman on April 10, 2018 at 12:17 pm

    Don’t use Facebook and probably will never be using it. Sending simple email notices with locations and times and contact number or email address .
    Here in NYS we are under the thumb of Tzar Coumo in Albany who does not believe it the Constitution or legal citizens rights. Wishing the best to all who attend and can only hope the Constitution will survive. If anything should be abolished it should be the Democratic Party, not gun rights.

  29. Bill Slike III on April 10, 2018 at 1:29 pm

    A quick note – Some of the state organizers (like here in Indiana) had to create a “new” event since the actual state hosts couldn’t update the one created by NCCPA as an initial place holder

    Indiana’s event is here:

    We have a great event planned with a number of notable speakers.

    Thanks to all the individual working to organize this and thanks ConcealedCarry.Com for sharing! These are true GRASS ROOTS events … so all the support we can get is essential!!!

  30. Dale on April 10, 2018 at 2:12 pm

    Why Facebook? I don’t have this. Post it somewhere else. I do not use social media.

    • Joshua Gillem on April 10, 2018 at 3:44 pm


      We understand. We are not the ones responsible for putting this together, and the ones who are decided Facebook would be the best way to get the word out there. We are doing our best to keep up with all the comments and get the word out to people, but it is not our event. We are just trying to use our platform to get the word out there the best we can.



  31. Peter Odell on April 10, 2018 at 2:30 pm

    It’s a shame the Wisconsin one is in Madison. That is the most liberal portion of the State, and attendees are likely to be sparse because of it. Also, out of curiosity, is there a reason we are supposed to rally for our 2A rights as posted by in a place where carrying a weapon is strictly prohibited? As far as I know, it is prohibited to possess a weapon, concealed or otherwise, on government property, such as the State Capitol building. If anyone has any light to she’d on the topic, I would be happy to hear it. I worry that people may be detained for practicing their rights in the “wrong place”.

    • Ezra Michael Ostlie on April 13, 2018 at 9:09 am

      I believe you can conceal and carry inside most of the capitol except where posted. Open carry inside the capitol as far as I know isn’t allowed. Here is a link to the Capitols website:

      On capitol grounds and even on the UW Campus, you are legally allowed to carry openly or concealed. Just be careful entering any building. At every “public” entrance, there must be a “No Firearms or weapons” signs if you are not allowed to go in. I legally carry on campus, but cannot go into campus buildings… sad for me. Most of the people on Saturday will be standing amongst others carrying near the capitol, so it should be relatively safe and legal. I would recommend you NOT “open” carry down lets say, Bascom Hill… you would get a lot of people pissed off, and police would really not take it kindly if not informed beforehand. This sheltered university would have a campus wide panic if you did so. Makes me think what students will think come Saturday…

  32. Juan Restrepo on April 10, 2018 at 2:53 pm

    I will be going to the Richmond VA rally. I think its about time we made our voices heard. The Bill of Rights is non negotiable.

  33. mike lewis DeAgel on April 10, 2018 at 4:12 pm

    mike in pa if they take the second Amendment Away i think there will be another civil war

  34. Jordan on April 10, 2018 at 7:50 pm

    After recent news you really want to depend on Facebook to organize and get the word out?? Never had Facebook, never will…..

  35. Vince on April 10, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    I would also like an event closer to home say Toms River or Little Egg Egg Harbor NJ

  36. Ed on April 11, 2018 at 3:16 am

    I do not do Facebook either. Where else can I get this info from?

    Thank You,


  37. Donna on April 11, 2018 at 2:18 pm

    This is that line in the sand and should be no excuses if it means as much as that time we first recieved our 1st and 2nd amendment rights.
    People spend hours at Disneyland is this issue not more important? My travel to attend will be 7 hours. The best 7 hrs journey in my opinion because it’s important to me. I’m not a.nut case but I hear there are rumors of somthing being sprayed into the skies that are calming chemicals that lulls people to complacency. I’m not saying I believe it, but just in case pray for a clear mind and protection and try and reason the facts about any thing before responding or not responding. This issue needs our voices ,collectively, and peacefully yes. Together we can be a voice to be heard.

  38. Cliff Freigh on April 11, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    This is another example of why there are often less of a turnout for things that “we” do versus things the other side does. We are interesting people doing interesting things, often using our God-given rights to do so. You can’t be in two places at one time.

    But those folks are always available to protest things, or march, or carry signs, because they must not have a job, or a hobby, or anything worth protecting. Yet why would someone with such a one-dimensional sad life think that they should tell us what to do? Or not to do?

    To USCCA: enjoy the Expo and thank you for doing this, and for sreading this info as well!

  39. MICHAEL GRIMM on April 11, 2018 at 8:16 pm

    The rally in Ohio will be supported by dozens of carpoolers, and at least one post I saw said there will be a few buses to and from. Facebook is the main place to get info. The next rallies will hopefully not be advertised on social media only.

  40. Bill Ramsey on April 12, 2018 at 7:30 pm

    Illinois capital is 3 1/2 hours away but I’m going.Just hope I see lots of supporters there.This is important.

  41. miguel anguiano jr on April 12, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    Going to California rally

  42. John on April 13, 2018 at 6:55 am

    I hate to tell you all but Farsebook is not your friend. How does one find out about a rally if they don’t bow to Zukerberg and the NSA????

  43. john jaklich on April 13, 2018 at 12:38 pm

    I received a notice yesterday…law abiding gun owners pretty much have a life…jobs, family, responsibilities…can’t just up and go like the paid activists can. Sorry we can’t attend. Hope it gets a good turnout…

  44. Paul Russell on April 13, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    Montgomery, AL, 1:00pm, capitol south lawn

  45. BlackMoe on April 14, 2018 at 9:11 am

    You lost me at “Facebook”. Why do I have to visit the enemy’s site to learn about an event to defeat the enemy? No thanks, maybe next time the event organizer will be more serious, but this must be a fricken joke.

  46. Fred Flinatone on April 15, 2018 at 10:49 pm

    Pretty freaking pathetic turnout.
