Tax Holiday This Weekend For Louisiana Shooters, Hunters

While some anti-gun governmental jurisdictions, like Seattle and Connecticut, are pushing for higher taxes on guns to reduce gun ownership, many parts of the country are far friendlier toward gun owners.

Take Louisiana, for instance, where those wanting to shop for firearms or other hunting supplies this weekend can take advantage of the 2017 Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday. On Sept. 1-3, eligible purchases are fully exempt from all local sales taxes and are subject to a 3 percent state sales tax, down from the normal 5 percent.

The sales tax holiday applies to a wide range of hunting supplies including guns, ammunition, hunting apparel and archery equipment. Louisianans wishing to see a complete list of what supplies are and are not covered under the tax holiday can find one by clicking here.
