Andy Parker has worn numerous hats in life. Professional actor, corporate headhunter, and elected official to name a few. He's also known as a gun-control activist who has appeared countless times in major news outlets, and in 2019 he added “author” to that list, with the publication of “For Alison: The Murder of a Young Journalist and a Father’s Fight for Gun Safety.” With that colorful history comes many backstories from music, theatre, and politics.
