ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) --- Volunteers will gather under the Gateway Arch Saturday to rally against gun violence with the Missouri Chapter of Moms Demand Action.

The rally is a response to the recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. In part, the rally will honor other Americans whose lives were cut short by gun violence.
