This is how the Democrats roll. They say whatever it takes to get in office–they even pose for pictures with guns–then use their elected position to limit or abolish gun rights.
When Democrat Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis admitted to faking her pro-gun positions in an effort to defeat Republican Greg Abbott she put herself in line with a growing number of Democrats who’ve claimed to be pro-gun in order to win elections, then waged war against the Second Amendment once in office.
For example, consider President Obama, who actually campaigned as a supporter of the Second Amendment to win his first presidential election.
According to Real Clear Politics, he said the following in 2008: “I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.” Fast forward to 2013 and Obama’s presidency was characterized by various gun pushes that included complete bans on certain types of rifles.
Fox 59 reported that Obama stood among Sandy Hook families at that time and described gun control as part of “our first task as a society.”
Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) actually packaged himself as pro-gun during election cycles too. His pro-gun claims were so rich that he even enjoyed high ratings from the NRA for a time. But in 2013 it became painfully clear he too had said whatever he had to say in order to get endorsed/elected and was actually at war with the Second Amendment.
