Citing gun violence, Gabby Giffords' trauma surgeon enters race for her old House seat

Randy Friese, the trauma surgeon who a decade ago treated Gabby Giffords after she was shot in the head, launched a run for Congress on Thursday — a year into a global pandemic and amid a flurry of mass shootings that have revived a national debate over gun laws.

Friese, who has served in Arizona’s state Legislature since 2015, hopes to succeed Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, who is retiring next year from a southeastern Arizona district. He is friendly with Giffords and her husband, Sen. Mark Kelly, and plans to make his support for gun safety legislation a key theme of his run.

1. Got my attention.

I'm so tired of hearing people talk about owning and firing a gun. As if those acts give them the ability to speak on gun law. I'd rather hear from those that have to patch and mend the broken bodies from gun trauma.
