  MOMENT OF SILENCE HONORING VICTIMS OF UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA 
                                SHOOTING

  (Ms. ADAMS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Ms. ADAMS. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor the victims of the 
shooting in my district last week on April 30 at the University of 
North Carolina at Charlotte.
  The campus was terrorized by gun violence. Two promising young men, 
Ellis ``Reed'' Parlier and Riley Howell, lost their lives. Four other 
students were injured in this act of senseless violence.
  As a mother, grandmother, and retired professor, my heart goes out to 
the loved ones and the entire UNC community. Too many people fear for 
their safety in their schools, on their campuses, and even in their 
places of worship.
  Enough is enough. We can and must do more to stop gun violence. UNCC 
and the Charlotte community will never forget last week's tragedy, and 
we will never forget Reed and Riley. We will honor their memories with 
action and continue working to keep our communities safe.
  I ask all Members and guests in the gallery to rise for a moment of 
silence.
