Eau Claire City Council considers gun control resolution

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Monday, the Eau Claire City Council heard public opinion on a resolution that would urge lawmakers to work toward stricter gun control legislation.

Eau Claire and Parkland, FL student activists have combined with some city council members to draft the resolution.

If passed, it would call on state and federal lawmakers to sponsor universal background checks, 48-hour waiting periods and other “common sense” gun control legislation.

Council member Emily Anderson said the message of the resolution is clear. “Our young people are calling for leadership that protects them, that keeps them safe, and that we as a community [should] support our young leaders,” Anderson said.

The council will take a vote on this resolution Tuesday.
