                        GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION

  (Mr. ROUDA asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. ROUDA. Madam Speaker, I rise today for former Representative 
Katie Hill and the people of California's 25th District.
  Madam Speaker, 261 days ago, Republicans and Democrats came together 
in this Chamber to pass meaningful legislation to address our Nation's 
gun violence epidemic.
  Madam Speaker, 261 days ago, Members representing cities, suburbs, 
and rural America did their job and voted to pass commonsense reforms 
that 89 percent of Americans support.
  Madam Speaker, 261 days ago, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell 
could have done his job and brought those bills to the floor of the 
United States Senate, but he did not; and now, once again, we watch 
shooting after shooting occur across our country.
  Yesterday, Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California, was added 
to the lengthy list of sites of senseless tragedy.
  We fought for the will of the people--89 percent of Americans. We 
crafted legislation that will save lives. We passed the bill. We did 
our jobs. It is time for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to do 
his.
  Enough is enough. Children are dying.
