    Texas gov candidate Wendy Davis supports open carry law.

    Texas gov candidate Wendy Davis supports open carry law
    Published February 06, 2014Associated Press


    Candidate profile:



    AUSTIN, Texas – The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned by many cities in Texas. But the state's next governor could change that.

    Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public.

    Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. But in a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry -- a position that puts her at odds with her own party but could keep her from alienating gun rights advocates in a deeply conservative a state where the Second Amendment is sacrosanct.

    Having warded off a road-rage incident with nothing but carrying a gun openly, I support OC. Which ever way this election goes, I hope Texas can join the OC community sooner than later. Think what you will about OC vs. CC, but people should be free to make their own choice imo.

    That actually worries me. I am suspicious of candidates who wander all over the political spectrum. I prefer the devil I know.

    so if she opposed open carry she'd be a card carrying liberal, and if she is in favor you don't trust her anyway. Interesting

    If you are a one issue voter, and you take candidates at their word, then you may flip your coin.

    She is a card carrying Leftist. She believes in Open Carry as much as I believe that Socialism is a dandy idea.

    I agree with PEF above - limiting your vote to a single issue is a recipe for disaster and is frankly negligent. People lie and politicians lie more than the average person. If you don't consider the whole background, you are ignoring the factors that will help you understand how they will really act if elected.

    Her 2A position is certainly a big part of what should be considered. With her recent statement on OC both her and her republican opponent now "agree" on this issue. Taking an anti-2A stance in TX is political death and she knows it - she is attempting to limit the issues that differentiate her from her opponent. Like just about every other politician, she will say or do anything to get elected and then advance her agenda. She has clearly demonstrated a hardcore belief in other liberal causes and she has been less than honest in the past. If you are going to take a chance on one of them, who will it be?

    She is demonstrated to be a LIAR. Why would you believe she supports the 2A?

    Unfortunately, this news story is just a feel good how wonderful Wendy is to get her more votes (which is why she has this position for the time being).

    The real story is that the top Democratic candidate and the top Republican candidate have both stated they support open carry. The article does say that, but this one and the others like it come across more like they're playing up Wendy over Greg instead of saying they both agree on this issue (for now).
