Back in February, then-gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis attempted to rock the boat by claiming that she supported Texas’ open carry movement.Her opponent Greg Abbott, an already-beloved-by-most Attorney General and popular favorite to win the election, already supported the measure, so perhaps at the time it seemed like a savvy move.
