Judy Chu introduces Alhambra High School gun control resolution in Congress

Rep. Judy Chu introduced an anti-gun violence resolution in Congress based on a resolution drafted by Jose Sanchez’s government class on Tuesday.

Known as H.Res. 1076, the resolution will outlaw individuals with violent criminal records from purchasing guns. It will also require background checks and age checks for all buyers, raise the minimum age for purchasing guns from 18 to 21 years old, according to a press release from Chu’s office.

“A movement is growing, and these students are not afraid to stand up to the NRA if it means saving their lives,” said Chu in the press release. “And I’m proud to stand with them.”

The resolution was written in response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, which inspired students around the country to organize around gun control. Alhambra High School students presented their resolution to the Alhambra Democratic Club, the Alhambra City Council, the Alhambra Unified School District Board of Education and Chu herself this past spring.

“I’m hoping once this gets introduced other congressmen from all over America will get involved and introduce legislation,” said Alhambra High School student Anthony Hu, who worked on the resolution.

“My hopes is that there will be no more school shootings again,” said Alhambra High School alumnus Eduardo Flores in an email. “Though our congresswoman is very busy I can see that she shares the same passion and drive to have change on this issue.”
