Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Wendy Davis is the queen of the left-wing in Texas.
She captured their hearts when she filibustered in Austin at the last legislative session about abortion. She, who wore pink tennis shoes and made the left swoon, has run into some political trouble as of late. This time from something she said last week.
Now, Ms. Davis was once on the Fort-Worth City Council and she made it no secret she tried to get gun shows out of the city. She also said she wanted to do away with the dreaded gun show "loophole" so many on the left fain about. She came right out and said if she was elected governor, she'd pass any gun-tightening legislation that crossed her desk into law.
Well, last week, she said something that has lead her loved ones to scratch their heads and wonder where in the world this came from.
She said she's supports the open-open carry gun law in Texas.
You know, open-carry, that means you could walk down the streets of Tyler or Fort-Worth with a big iron on your hip with no concealment. You'd just walk into Starbucks with your Glock on your leg.
Now, this is the most incongruous things she could have done. This does not align itself with her crowd. I am sure the low-information voters would probably think she was talking about open-carry, mistaking it for open-container. I guess.
Some on her side say, "She's just trying to win." But, the second amendment guys like me keep up with politicians and have a long memory. I am sure if she did win, she'd be like the president was on abortion and probably evolve to what she really is and go after gun lovers.
This doesn't make sense, it's very strange she would try this.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
