A bill proposed by Texas Republican State Rep. Jeff Leach would make Texas Independence Day a tax-free holiday for gun purchases.
Sounds like a great idea.
Dallas News reported:
Looking for a reason to buy a gun in Texas? Republican State Rep. Jeff Leach has filed a bill to give Texas gun-buyers a break — making Texas Independence Day (March 2) a tax-free holiday for anyone who purchases a rifle, pistol, shotgun or semi-automatic. Buy a gun, skip the sales tax. Leach calls his bill the Texas Gun Ownership Reinforcement Act.
“Texas must take the lead in the fight against the federal government’s attempts to infringe on our Second Amendment Rights,” Leach said in a statement. ”As we fight against the federal government’s overreach, there is no more appropriate day to instate this tax-free holiday than on Texas Independence Day.”
