Slain Reporter’s Dad: Gun Control Will Be Her Legacy
Dems seize opportunity: ‘Too many in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them’
(Mediaite) – The colleagues, families, and loved ones ofAlison Parker and Adam Ward, the two WDBJ employees shot and killed on live TV today, have been publicly mourning and talking about how wonderful the two of them were. Parker’s fatherreleased a statement earlier today saying their family is dealing with “unbearable” grief and how Alison’s life was “cruelly extinguished by yet another crazy person with a gun.”
Andy Parker appeared tonight on Fox News, alongside Chris Hurst, the man who Parker had planned to marry, to speak with Megyn Kelly about what kind of person she was.
But at one point, Parker wanted to make it clear that he has some strong views about actually doing something, telling Kelly, “We’ve got to do something about crazy people getting guns.”
He lamented how in a week from now, the news will completely move on and “everybody’s gonna forget” this shooting. But Parker said he spoke with Governor Terry McAuliffe, a gun control advocate, and he told McAuliffe about “shaming legislators into doing something about closing loopholes and background checks.”

Obama: Gun-Related Killings Dwarf Terrorism Deaths
(Newsmax) – President Barack Obama told a Philadelphia television reporter on Wednesday that gun-related violence in America far outpaces deaths by terrorism.
WPVI-TV’s Monica Malpass interviewed Obama in the White House and asked him about the shooting deaths Wednesday morning of WDBJ-TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward.
The two were shot on live television by disgruntled former reporter Vester Flanagan.
“It breaks my heart every time you read about or hear about these kinds of incidents,” Obama said. “What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”
