Wendy Davis: Strong on the Second Amendment.

Already, the national FR network of websites are taking up the uniform, torch-lit chants warning of the heretic, Wendy Davis. But the halls of their mountain king will not ring out with the usual rhetoric about guns. According to Project Vote Smart, Wendy Davis has voted "yea" 3 out of 4 times on gun legislation in the past two years. Her only "no" vote was against legislation allowing guns on college campuses, back in 2011. (IMO, that issue has never been very hot-button, even in Texas.) Her "yea" votes, all this year, are in favor of:

1) Allowing guns in cars when vehicles are on college campuses;

2) Allowing tax breaks for firearms, ammunition and accessories companies to encourage re-location to Texas; and

3) Allowing for school marshals to augment armed security in schools.


Project Vote Smart summarizes one of these bills, the rest are in text form.

6. We hear a lot about "right to LIFE" in Texas, hence Davis's filibuster.

5. Why is this surprising? She's strongly Pro-choice and obviously believes in personal liberty.
