It is shocking how fast the progressive socialist democrats and their useful idiots jumped on the killing of a television news reporter and her cameraman with talk of a foundation to pursue gun control – and educational institutions started fundraising for scholarships. And, the two victims are not even 24-hours dead.
Scholarships have been established for WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker.A scholarship for Adam Ward is in the process of being set up. Adam graduated from Salem High School and Virginia Tech. Parker and WDBJ7 photographer Adam Ward were shot and killed during a live broadcast Wednesday.
Alison Parker graduated from Patrick Henry Community College and James Madison University. Scholarships through both schools have been established.
Checks for the Alison Parker Memorial Scholarship can be made payable to the JMU Foundation.

ATTN: Alison Parker Memorial Scholarship
Patrick Henry Community College and the PHCC Foundation have established a scholarship in memory of PHCC alumna and 2015 Distinguished Alumni award winner Alison Bailey Parker. She was a 2009 graduate of PHCC with an associate of arts and sciences degree through the Piedmont Governor’s School for Math, Science and Technology.
The Alison Bailey Parker Memorial Scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis to a PHCC student who enters the Media Design and Production program.
Christopher Parker, vice president for institutional advancement and executive director of the PHCC Foundation, said establishing a scholarship in honor of Parker (no relation) is a way for us to remember her contributions and memory.
“Alison was a great example of what dedication and motivation can do in someone’s life,” Parker said. “As a product of PHCC and Martinsville, she made us all proud of her achievements and the way she carried herself through that success in life.”
Parker, a graduate of Martinsville High School, served as a television journalist for WDBJ7 News in Roanoke since 2014. Before starting at WDBJ7, Parker was the bureau chief for WCTI TV 12 and FOX 8/14 in Jacksonville, N.C. After graduating from PHCC, Parker attended James Madison University where she majored in Media Arts and Design. She graduated from JMU in December 2012 and began her career in journalism as an intern at WDBJ7.

Bottom line …
I am not against honoring the lives and work of those admirable people that bring us the television news, I am greatly concerned when the grief-stricken father allies with the governor and promises to promote gun control. Or that schools affiliated with the slain news professionals rush before the cameras with new scholarship programs.
I am, however, concerned about those liberals who play on emotions to attempt to disarm the American people to further the United Nation’s mandate that no “private” individual be allowed firearms to defend themselves against evildoers – criminals and crazies -- or government tyranny.
The sad fact is that in a riot, civil insurrection, or a hostile takeover by illegals from other countries, the military cannot protect you and civilian law enforcement will do what ever is politically expedient – even standing down in the face of rioting, looting, and the destruction of public and private property.
By the time the authorities arrive, you and your family will be long dead. Useful only to further the progressive agenda of more gun control. And, don’t believe the misinformation of high-capacity magazines – your first shots may not be accurate and you may be attacked by multiple evildoers – all probably better armed than you because they do not need to follow the law.
Donate to honor the lives of the fallen whom you admire, do not donate to further the gun control that will only result in a larger pool of victims or even more government tyranny.
