The Latest in Sales Tax Policy

Well, not quite the latest, but pretty strange nonetheless.

Can I get one today mom? There's no sales tax!

Can I get one today mom? There’s no sales tax!

That’s the news out of Tennessee recently, where a bill now before the state legislature would create a sales tax holiday for…

…guns and ammunition.

This is not a misprint.

Or as the bill’s brain surgeon of a sponsor calls it, a “second amendment sales tax holiday.”

As appalling as this idea is, it is not, believe it or not, the first of its kind:  last year Louisiana and Mississippi both held weekend sales tax holidays for guns.

Because like some other nitwits we have to suffer, these folks think the key to reducing gun violence is to put guns in the hands of even more people than already have them.

And further evidence that when you pick up the United States by its ankles and shake it really, really hard, all the loose marbles fall to places like Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi (and of course, Texas).

    Sorry to say, there is an endless supply of loose marbles, to the point that citizens of these locales are clueless to the fact that marbles are even missing.
