    KELLY of Illinois asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. KELLY of Illinois. Mr. Speaker, another mass shooting, another moment of silence. Actually, we will have to do two in a day or back- to-back because of the shooting in Savannah, Georgia. That did not get the attention because 1 person died and 3 people were injured, not like in California, where 14 died and 17 were injured.

    You stood already this week for Colorado. I say ``you'' because I don't do it any more. I can't be hypocritical. You stand up, you sit down, you do nothing.

    There have been 355 mass shootings so far this year, not to mention the many who have died alone and get no attention or no moment of silence.

    When are we really going to stand up and do something? Just who has to die--your mother? your wife? your son? Or how many? We need to stand up, speak up, and take actions rather than another moment of silence. It is deafening, and it is killing us.
