Republicans in the Texas Senate just okayed a tax-free weekend on guns.
Yeah, guns. Just what Texas needs – more guns. We need gun to fend off the US Army, y’all.
The proposed tax break — which Creighton calls a Second Amendment tax holiday weekend — would come one week ahead of hunting season and one week before a similar weekend in Louisiana. Texas would lose $3.6 million per year in tax revenue under the proposed legislation, according to an estimate from the Legislative Budget Board.
Yes, $3.6 million. We are second to last in education. Our health care and treatment for mental illness is lower than dirt. But we have $3.6 million to subsidize hunters. And criminals.
Next will be a tax free weekend on yachts and golf clubs.
Thanks to Sam for the heads up.
