Position on Bill: Neutral.
Status: Filed 11/14/16.
I think the OP is more interested in a permanent tax abatement for the purchase of firearms, ammo, etc.
I don't think we will ever see firearms not taxed, it brings in too much revenue. While the ability to possess firearms is a legal right, there is nothing in the Constitution that says they cannot be taxed. It would, in my opinion follow along the same lines as taxing the written word, taxing the sale of books, magazines and newspapers is legal. Even though we have the right to "free" speech.
I do think that my firearms should be legal dependents on my income taxes though, since I have to feed, shelter, and protect them.
