ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The St. Louis chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America rallied over the weekend for tougher gun control measures in the Show-Me State.

The chapter is asking state politicians to consider mandatory background checks and a ban on assault weapons.

"They should be on this stage with us right now to support common-sense gun regulation. Universal background checks, bans on assault weapons, and bans on high capacity magazines are crucial to  the welfare of our children," Melissa Brooks, the group's co-leader said at the rally.

The organization began after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.
