Father of shooting victim talks gun control
ROANOKE, Va. - The father of slain TV reporter Alison Parker says he will make it his mission to try to change gun laws.
Andy Parker said outside of WDBJ-TV on Friday that he supports stronger gun laws and says people at gun shows should have to a background check before they can make purchases.
He says he has talked with Gov. Terry McAuliffe about gun laws, but was disappointed that he hadn't heard from Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner.
He says politicians need to stand up to the NRA and that his daughter's murder will not be in vain. Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were gunned down by a former colleague on Wednesday.
