    GRAYSON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. GRAYSON. Mr. Speaker, I represent Orlando, the site of the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States: 49 dead in a matter of just minutes. So far, there has been no action by this body to address any grievances.



    For instance, we have no action on Peter King's bill, the no fly, no buy terrorist gun bill. We have no action on Peter King's second bill, H.R. 1217. We have no action on David Cicilline's bill to reinstate the assault weapons ban, H.R. 4269; no action on Sheila Jackson Lee's bill, H.R. 4316; no action on the second bill that she introduced, H.R. 5470; no action on Mike Thompson's recently introduced bill, H.R. 5504; no action on my own bill to reinstate the assault weapons ban; no action even to show our respect for the dead by passing H. Res. 789, stalled in this body for a month.

    I don't think we should be doing anything unless we are going to do something about making the American people safe again. Therefore, I move to adjourn in respect of Stanley Almodovar, one of the victims, and the remainder.
