Privately, though, some of Davis’ top supporters said they were caught off guard and disappointed by her embrace of a position that has in the past sparked divisions even among traditional supporters of strong or expanded gun rights.
And it seemed doubtful that Davis would attract much support from pro-gun groups.
“Wendy Davis is as pro-gun as Ann Richards,” Alice Tripp, director of the Texas State Rifle Association, said in a message from her Twitter account. Richards, the last Democratic governor in Texas, famously opposed a referendum calling for a concealed handgun law, and many said it contributed to her defeat in 1994.
The National Rifle Association was even harsher.
“This is an election-year conversion for Wendy Davis. Voting records speak volumes. As a state legislator, Wendy earned an F-rating from the NRA by voting against the Second Amendment repeatedly," said NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen. "Her about-face lacks credibility. Texans know that.”
