FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- In the chaos of Memorial Regional Hospital’s trauma unit, surgeon Niqui Kiffin has removed bullets from a man shot multiple times while sleeping. She has operated on a college student who shot himself playing with a gun while FaceTiming his girlfriend. And she has operated on a Golden Beach police officer who took a bullet in the arm while on duty.

“When we hear all the stuff about guns and gun violence and gun safety, we really know the trauma it causes,” Kiffin said.
