Two Democratic state lawmakers want a sales tax holiday on the purchase of guns.
Sen. John Sparks, of Norman, and Rep. Wes Hilliard, of Sulphur, have introduced Senate Bill 1322, also called the Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday Act. It would set a sales tax break on handguns, rifles or shotguns starting at 12:01 a.m. on the third Friday in August until midnight the following Sunday.
Sparks on Tuesday said the proposed date could be changed. He said he wants to talk with interested parties to determine the most appropriate timing for the sales tax holiday.
The measure would be effective starting next year and would expire in 2014 unless the expiration date is extended, Sparks said. The measure has a set time span so officials can have time to assess its effect, he said.Click here to read the complete article at Tulsaworld.com
