Wendy Davis supports “open carry” gun law–Gee, maybe I’ll move to Texas and vote for her

February 6, 2014

Must be a throwback to her “trailer park” years months:

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.

And as we know, nothing scares a liberal so much as a pistol on the hip.

This isn’t Davis’s only lurch to the right, as National Review points out:

This is…the latest in a string of rightward moves that must have the more honest among Davis’s backers wondering why they’re bothering. Thus far, their candidate has: dropped from her website all mention of abortion, the very thing that made her famous; started to describe herself as “pro-life” in the vain hope that voters might not notice; and, worried at how she might be portrayed, taken to walking around campaign events carrying a shotgun and talking like Yosemite Sam. The policy shifts, too, have been remarkable. As her star fades and her numbers sting, Davis sounds more and more conservative, railing against state income taxes that would increase funding for public schools and promising to expand the areas in which residents could conceal-carry pistols.

But open carry? We’ve gone from pink sneakers to red meat in a matter of months. Incredible.

Now, all Wendy has to do is get herself a US Out of UN bumper sticker–and she’ll have my vote.
