Andy Parker's plea for gun control is poignant. After all, he's the father of murdered-on-air reporter, Alison Parker.
But few expect that outreach and the death itself to reform the business - and it is a business - of guns in America. In this economic issue there will probably be no tipping points.
Crisis doesn't necessarily precipitate change. Crisis can just be that: crisis. And, it will eventually lose steam. Parker likely will continue in this mission. It might give him purpose after this loss.
However, I have a hunch his crusade, including official lobbing, won't be effective.
