I have no idea how come Liberal Democrats and Media are not having attacks of agita about this bill.

HB 2854 by Hill (R)

Firearms and Ammunition – As introduced, exempts the retail sale of firearms that have a barrel less than an internal diameter of .50 caliber and shotguns of 10 gauge or greater from the sales and use tax. – Amends TCA Title 67, Chapter 6, Part 3.

So far it is advancing through the legislative hoops. There is hope.

  1. Well, even the leftists have to admit (eventually) that simply raising the cost does not stop people from using stuff. Notice how there are not many “You should be happy about $5 gas” articles any more? Because increasing prices on stuff people are going to buy no matter what does not stop usage.

    1. Indeed. And as we know, when prices (total, including taxes) get too high for a particular item, consumers will start to substitute a lower-cost verison. Hamburger for steak; PSA Daggers for Glocks.

  2. They should call it the “L. Neil Smith Memorial ‘No Taxation of Constitutional Rights’ Act”.

    But why exclude .50 cal? Then again, “internal diameter” means the diameter across the rifling lands, right? Which is a bit less than 0.500 inches, I think.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
