Slain TV Reporter’s Boyfriend Doesn’t Call for Gun Control

Earlier today, the  father of slain Virginia TV reporter Alison Parker reacted to his daughter’s murder by calling for increased gun control. Andy Parker vowed to dedicate his life to that pursuit and for good measure, vilified the National Rifle Association.
