Houston, Tx –-(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday Texas Senator from Fort Worth, Wendy Davis (D) officially announced her intent to be a 2014 gubernatorial candidate.

As a Forth Worth city council person, Davis became infamous to Texas gun owners during the summer of 2000 when she tried to oust a gun show from Fort Worth city-owned property.

Her stated reason: “the city of Fort Worth doesn't need to be in the business of selling guns”.

Davis later commented during the Charley Jones radio show that she had never been to a gun show but that “common sense” tells her they are a fertile ground for illegal gun sales.

During the anti-gun push by Davis, the local police chief said he had never been alerted to a problem resulting from sales at the Fort Worth gun show.

From an article in the Daily Caller on 9/18/2013

In an interview last week with the Texas Tribune, Davis acknowledged that, should she one day reside in the Governor's Mansion, she'd back tougher regulations on Texas gun show sales:

“I haven't pursued it as a senator because I know it's like spitting in the wind,” Davis told the Texas Tribune. “But I still believe it's the right thing. And if I were governor and a bill came to my desk that provided for background checks at gun shows, I would sign that.”

As a member of the Fort Worth City Council, she pushed for further gun show restrictions on sales between individuals, pursuits long-driven by gun-grabbers. Politically speaking, such a posture goes against the grain of ever winning statewide in the Lone Star State.

Davis further sought banning gun shows on city-owned property, a more radical posture aimed at eradicating the presence of firearms at convention centers and the like.

Austin, a blue bastion in a sea of red, pursued similar restrictions this year. In an interesting twist, her likely GOP opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, vowed a “double-barreled lawsuit,” and the city subsequently abandoned the plan.

Davis is alienating herself from a broad swath of voters, and has enabled an already-advantaged rival to draw contrast without even mentioning her name.

Davis pushes back by touting the guns she owns, and her vote this year to enable firearm possession in cars on college campuses, efforts aimed at toeing a centrist line resembling Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Note:
During this year's legislative session, Senator Wendy Davis refused to allow HB 972, a comprehensive version of CHL on Campus, to be heard on the senate floor thereby killing the measure. HB 972 by Fletcher passed in the Texas House.

    1. What is this r-tard even doing in Texas? Get the hell out of Texas, and get the hell out of my country!

      Also, you are hereby barred from using the Davis family name!!!

    2. All Gun owners and conservatives need to GET OUT THE VOTE. Don’t assume this “Wicked Witch of the Left” is going to lose. The big cities are filling up with LIBERALS, especially Austin. Support Gregg Abbott with time and a little money if you have it. Go to the witches facebook and simply flood it with Gregg Abbott for Governor. I will join you there. TY

    3. Texas doesn’t need a Communist, Progressive, Liberal anti-American as a representative period! I wouldn’t ever let her be a trash collector. Kick these traitors to Texas and America out of our Christian Nation.

    4. What I don’t understand is if democrats truly believe the second amendment is bad why don’t they just come out and say so? Why play like because they have guns that automaticly means they believe in the second amendment.Many democrats try to have it both ways. Don’t be fooled! Check their records, and check their ratings at the NRA or GOA.Same goes for liberal Republicans,also known as RINOs.

    5. When she took her oath of office for senator to protect and uphold the Constitution she did not take it seriously.

      She needs to be kicked out of office for breaking her oath as she has openly tried to abolish the 2nd Amendment with her anti gun actions.

      we need more Pro Gun candidates , so stop voting in the anti gun democrats.
