No one should ever postpone making a difference because of their age. That’s a message Young America’s Foundation champions at its many conferences, and apparently, it was not lost on alumni Katie Pavlich.
Pavlich’s new book, Fast and Furious, has reached #20 on Amazon’s bestselling list and continues to climb. She’s been on Fox News’ Hannity, The O’Reilly Factor, and other national programs promoting her blockbuster which argues that the ‘Fast and Furious’ gun program was used by the Obama administration to attack our Second Amendment rights.
"Young America's Foundation inspired me to fight harder, work harder, pursue the truth, and stand up for what I believe in," Pavlich said in an email to the Foundation. As an attendee of the Foundation’s West Coast Leadership Conference in 2008 and 2009, Pavlich learned from national leaders like the late Andrew Breitbart and Dr. Victor Davis Hanson about the importance of seeking the truth in journalism and public policy. She put those skills to good use. Fast and Furious exposes one of the greatest—and most ignored—public policy scandals in decades, but Pavlich didn’t let the scope of this scandal intimidate her. Being only 23, some tried to tell her she was too young to write a book. Thankfully, Pavlich understood that young people should never sit down and shut up when they see corruption. In Fast and Furious, Pavlich demonstrates that the Obama administration gave guns to Mexican cartels with little to no intent of tracking those weapons—resulting in the death of border agent Brian Terry. In her interview with Bill O’Reilly, Pavlich explains that out of 2500 guns, only two had sensors (with less than 40 hours of battery life).
