GunFreedomRadio EP428 Student-Led Media with Lyrah Panarigan
Our guest today is Lyrah Panarigan. Lyrah Panarigan published an article in the Daily Caller in 2023 titled: Media, Politicians Chronically Mislead On Total Number Of ‘Mass Shootings,’ Data Analysis Shows.
Lyrah is a student attending Arizona Christian University double-majoring in Political Science and Communications with a minor in Biblical Studies.
She is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Stronghold Media, ACU’s student-led press and media club. She is currently studying under Dr. George Barna of the Cultural Research Center.
Lyrah is a Liberty and Learning Fellow for the Fund for American Studies, where she interned with the Daily Caller in the summer.
1) You are very unique for your age group. You even wrote a blog about being a young Conservative living in a Blue State. What makes you so strong to stand against the cultural tide?
2) Your article in Daily Caller discusses findings from research on this year's mass shootings are not what other media and political figures are touting. Talk to us about that.
3) You suggest that further research might be needed. But, there seems to be a concerted effort out there to be willfully ignorant of the truth. If that is in fact the case, what are we to do to advocate for truth?
4) Talk to us about the importance of 2nd Amendment. And how do we reach more young Americans to understand and value it as you do?
