AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis says her support of expanding gun rights in Texas includes allowing people with concealed handgun licenses to openly carry their weapons in public.

The concept is known as "open carry" and it essentially allows license holders to carry a pistol on their hip without having to hide it.

The issue has been a popular gun rights position in the Republican primary. Davis' position aligns her with her Republican rival, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Abbott's position was well known. Davis gave her support for open carry in a statement to The Associated Press.

Abbott already has a concealed handgun license, and Davis has said she wants to get one.
