Wendy Davis explains that she was “cowed by the political realities” of Texas politics when she endorsed “open-carry” while running for governor. Um, news flash…No one who actually believes in the right to keep and bear arms ever believed you, Ms. Davis!

You can read more here but, I can save you some time. Davis blames the NRA and her desire to make the conversation about something other than guns. And so, as she puts it, she compromised her “deeply held principles for the sake of political expediency.” In other words, like every other politician, she lied through her teeth to get a vote.
