PHOTO FAIL: @WendyDavisTexas receives Ann Richards’ shotgun

Wendy Davis

Ms. Davis strikes out. Again.

Just in case you hadn’t heard enough news about Wendy Davis over the last couple of weeks, I thought I would be kind enough to let you know this happened (hat tip to Twitchy Team):

The Austinist provides context:

At a fundraiser for the Travis County Democratic Party last night, Clark Richards, son of former Democratic Texas governor Ann Richards, bequeathed Wendy Davis with his late mother’s engraved shotgun ..


Davis reportedly promised to “kick some ass with it.”

Based on that picture I’d have to say … um .. no. As Texan Bryan Preston notes:

Greg Abbott also had no trouble with [pulling off the effective shotgun shot] on this Texas Monthly cover.

TX AG Greg Abbott


I’d say the Texas AG wins the “battle of the bad a** pictures” hands down – just as I suspect will happen in the eventual TX Governor election should he and Ms. Davis become its respective nominees.

    Wendy Davis is no Ann Richards.

  2. Sefton says:

    Not exactly a comfortable look, is it?
    She looks like she’s afraid it’s going to go off.

  3. kimsch says:

    Of course, since it’s “broken” there’s no way it could fire, but she probably doesn’t know that. :d

  4. Phineas says:

    I doubt Wendy rides a Harley, either, unlike Governor Richards.

    RE: “Davis reportedly promised to “kick some ass with it [shotgun].”
    Wow. That’s serious hate speech. Who is she going to use this weapon against? What has happened to our country when politicians incite violence to further their political objectives!?

    I found several articles after Rep. Gifford was shot blaming Gov. Palin, including this: “Palin would no doubt say that she was only speaking in metaphor, that she only meant her followers should work to unseat Giffords and 19 other Democrats who had roused her ire by voting for health care. But anyone with any sense at all knows that violent language can incite actual violence, that metaphor can incite murder. At the very least, Palin added to a climate of violence.”

    How much worse has Wendy Davis “added to the climate of violence?”

    kevino – (just to add to your post)
    And where are all the progressive heads exploding on the MSM over the Biden endorsed weapon of choice – the shotgun – being used in the last few mass shootings?
    Where’s the sensitivity and perception on this as they publicly hand one of these scary portable weapons of mass destruction to Wendy Davis, who actually voiced “kicking some ass” with it?

    [impression of whiny lib] “Where’s the outrage?!”

    oh… nevermind… other than Wendy Davis being one of their own (and keeping with the hypocrisy) the new whiny crybaby topic now is “income inequality”. Next week it’ll be some other fake topic to instill division and/or propagate identity politics and class warfare.

  8. Drew the Infidel says:

    Did she undergo a mandatory background check in order to be in possession of a firearm?

  9. Carlos says:

    Background check? She’s a liberal, progressive, pro-murder (abortion) wind tunnel.

    She don’t need no shtinkin’ background check.

    (Maybe that’s why most, if not all, the weenies who commit the mass shootings are of that stripe – they figure since they know it all anyway, they don’t need to go through the same procedures they foist on us conservative terrorists.)
