Mississippi to Implement Tax Holiday For Hunters Because America

I'm all for the Constitution and all but folks in Mississippi are ALL for the Constitution and all, y'all:

Gov. Phil Bryant signed a bill Wednesday creating an annual tax free holiday in for Mississippi sportsmen each fall.

The Mississippi Second Amendment Weekend holiday will occur on the first Friday of each September until midnight on the following Sunday. This year, it will be September 5-7, and include sales tax exemption on individual sales of firearms, ammunition, archery equipment and certain hunting supplies.   

"Many Mississippians share my strong belief in the Second Amendment and love the outdoors," Gov. Bryant said. "This tax holiday will help ensure Mississippians continue to enjoy our state's great outdoor heritage for years to come. I thank the Mississippi Legislature for their hard work on this bill and for supporting Mississippi sportsmen and sportswomen."

Or, as the person who brought this to our attention called it: "a new sales tax holiday to confound the CPAs who have to figure out how to comply with the freebies"
