The father of Alison Parker, who was killed on live television in Virginia is withdrawing from a local election race to focus on gun law changes.
Andy Parker planned to run for a seat on the Henry County Board of Supervisors, but has dropped out to focus on changing the nation's gun laws.
Parker says that Alison's legacy will be her knack for journalism and for changes in the nation's gun laws.
Parker has also joined up with two anti-gun groups backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to kick off a national protest against gun violence.
Bloomberg's Everytown Survivor Network and Moms Demand Action are adopting Andy Parker's promise to do "whatever it takes" as their slogan for the September 10 protest.
