Surprise! Wendy Davis Never Supported Open Carry Gun Laws for Texas
Back when Wendy Davis thought she still had a shot of winning the race for governor of Texas, she insulted her base and the intelligence of her detractors by claiming she supported open carry laws for Texas.
Now that the election is safely over, she’s admitting what we all knew already. She never supported open carry. She was just saying it to get votes.

Wendy Davis Says She Regrets Campaign Stance On Guns, Which She Took To Win Votes
Wendy Davis’ stance on the issue of open carry gun laws was a political one, and not in line with her “core beliefs,” the failed Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate said in a recent interview.
“There is one thing that I would do differently in that campaign, and it relates to the position that I took on open carry,” Davis told the San Antonio Express-News in her first interview since losing to Republican Greg Abbott last month.
“I made a quick decision on that with a very short conversation with my team and it wasn’t really in keeping with what I think is the correct position on that issue,” Davis continued.
Gee. You don’t say.
Let this serve as a reminder. Democrats lie about their positions to get elected. They do it all the time but particularly when it comes to guns. When they’re running for office many of them will run ads showing themselves shooting guns and they’ll talk about the long standing tradition of hunting in their families. It’s all crap.
Show me a Democrat who says they support the Second Amendment and I’ll show you a liar. There is nothing they would love more than to get rid of the Second Amendment and disarm law abiding gun owners.
