State Insurance Commisisoner Candidate Mary Squires is Pro-Gun & Against Blanket Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants.

This has nothing to do with her current run for Insurance Commissioner, but interesting:

Says Squires in 2004 run for the U.S. Senate:

I support legal gun ownership and am a gun owner myself. I believe that we should do all we can to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Congress should close the loopholes that allow questionable sales at gun shows, permitting easy access to assault weapons that all too often end up on our city streets and in our schools

We have an illegal immigration problem in our state. The only way to solve it is to develop and enforce a Visa program that protects the rule of law. Blanket amnesty programs are not the answer.

With Immigration being such a hot topic now you better believe it will come up in debates between Squires & whoever her opponent will be, especially when discussing the healthcare reform bill & will it allow illegal immigrants to gain access to free healthcare.

As for Guns, she's solid on that front as well.

I thought I just put these two issues out there to show people where she stands on these issues.

Love me some Mary Squires. She's right on on the gun issue, although that has nothing to do with running for Insurance Commissioner and not really sure why it's posted here.

On the immigration issue, anyone who doesn't understand how much it has changed since 2004 isn't keeping up. Mary Squires used to represent an district with a large number of Hispanic voters. Now as a statewide candidate her role as insurance commissioner is completely different.

If folks allow the IC race to break down into hyperbole about immigration, someone isn't doing their job.
