Texas Senate OK’s sales tax holiday for guns and ammo

Texas hunters, a new holiday may be on the horizon for you.

A sales tax holiday, that is.

The Texas Senate on Thursday passed state Sen. Brandon Creighton’s “Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday Act” to let Texans have a tax-free weekend of shopping for guns, ammo and hunting supplies.

“Providing this sales tax break prior to the start of hunting season will be an economic driver for small businesses and will provide our hunters much-deserved savings,” said Creighton, R-Conroe. “I am pleased to encourage and promote gunmanship and to improve opportunities for all Texans to enjoy their Second Amendment rights.”

If approved by the House and signed off on by Gov. Greg Abbott, this sales tax holiday would join those already in place, such as one for back-to-school shopping, which is scheduled for Aug. 7-9.

1. And why not have a tax free holiday for beer

on the same weekend. Maybe they'll get drunk and shoot each other, spare the rest of us.
