Oklahoma lawmakers propose tax repeal on guns, ammo

BY The Associated Press Published: December 17, 2008
Two state lawmakers say they'll sponsor a bill to repeal state taxes on the sale of guns and ammunition in Oklahoma.

Rep. Eric Proctor of Tulsa and Sen. Kenneth Corn of Poteau say the tax may be a barrier for people needing protection.

Proctor says repealing the tax would have little affect on the state treasury and the people shouldn't have to pay a tax if they need a gun to protect their families.

Proctor says he was asked by a constituent to file the legislation.
