She's definitely just an opportunist, as I read in a related article.

And I will quote a guy over on the texasguntalk forums:
"She also said, 'till death do us part' a couple times."
"They that would give up Essential Liberty, for a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety"

So how do the Republican candidates respond?

Interesting political move.

What if one Republican (someone who is behind) candidate also comes out in favor of open carry to make the news?

Do all then follow, afraid to be left out?

Does she then reverse? The libs would be relieved, and she might draw some center left folks now being the only candidate who was against open carry.

Or after the most unbelievable of all political moves do we end up with open carry?

Support for open carry is not a genuine position.

She's just trying to pick up gun owner support for something she'd maneuver into defeat if it was ever proposed.
Absolutely right. Plus, she is a documented, confessed liar, so her credibility concerning any campaign statement or position is nonexistent. If she " wants to safeguard gun rights 'for honest citizens'," then why as a member of Fort Worth City Council, did she try to keep gun shows out of Fort Worth?

If people are carrying guns anyway it's pretty silly for the law to require hiding them.

Guns are like parachutes, if your ever in a situation that you need one and you dont have one, you'll probably never need one again.

As I recall Ann Richards was also "a supporter of the 2nd Amendment" during her campaign for governor until she got elected - and then proceeded to veto the Texas CHL bill.

Wendy is - as Wendy does.....not as Wendy says she "would".

All true but doesn't it raise a more important question: what's stopping an OC bill from becoming law next session? The likely gubernatorial nominees of BOTH parties support it (at least in theory by Davis's claim), the sitting Lt. Governor - and president of the Senate - supports it, as do those running for AG like Land Com. Patterson, and finally our sitting governor. Can it really still be that "controversial" now? Are we only lacking the support of the Speaker of the House? With the number of folks running for office who say they are pro-OC, you'd think it would be the first piece of legislation introduced and sail through both houses. :biggrinjester:

All kidding aside, does the environment get any more favorable? Charles, I really hope that we will strike the brand while the iron is hot. I know that OC has never been a high-priority for the TSRA but, like it or not, hasn't it become a target of opportunity that simply can't be ignored? Whether the OC protests and bogus arrests have helped or hurt, this is a chance to settle the issue. As I've said on many occasions, OC isn't my top legislative desire but if it has become low hanging fruit, I'll certainly take it. Please let me know how I can help. :txflag:

That would be a good test for how they really feel about the Second Amendment. Democrats and Republicans alike.
I sincerely apologize to anybody I offended by suggesting the Second Amendment also applies to The People who don't work for the government.

In my view it's only a test of how they really feel about open-carry. There are many very strong Second Amendment supporters who are either ambivalent about open-carry or out right opposed for fear it may negatively impact other Second Amendment rights. The OC crowd's attempt to make a person's position on open-carry a litmus test for how they feel about the Second Amendment has succeeded only within their own community. It's like saying "If you don't like a .45 Schofield revolver, you don't really support the Second Amendment."
