Father of Slain Journalist Just Pled for Gun Control On Fox News | Alternet

“We’ve got to do something about crazy people getting guns”, Parker said. Sitting by his side was Alison Parker’s boyfriend Chris Hurst who reinforced the point. “Clearly something went wrong,” the WDBJ producer said, “between him leaving our station and being able to purchase a gun and commit a premeditated act”


“Mark my words, this is my mission in life”, a clearly emotional Parker said, “I’m going to do something, whatever it takes to shame people, to shame legislators to close loopholes and [enforce] background checks to get crazy people away from guns.”



Father of slain WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, Andy Parker, was on Fox News’ Kelly File Wednesday night to discuss gun control in the wake of his daughter’s brutal killing at the hands of disgruntled ex-coworker Vester Flanagan.
