Wendy Davis, who gained national fame for filibustering a bill in the Texas State Senate in 2013, has a proven record of advocating for reasonable gun safety legislation. From the Fort Worth City Council to the Texas State Senate, Davis has consistently advocated for policies that respect the rights of responsible gun owners while closing loopholes like the unrestricted private sale of guns.
