While talk of gun control continues to spark debate across the country, a Texas lawmaker is aiming to create a tax-free holiday for consumers wanting to buy guns and ammo.
If the bill passes, the tax exemption would be held on March 2nd. While many gun advocates believe Texans would take advantage of the holiday, opponents say it just encourages more people to buy guns.
"This is one thing we're trying to get away from especially with all the recent crime all across the United States." said Johnny L. Cunningham.
"I think it would be a good idea, it's good to give people a break on taxes anytime you can," said John Landry.
Other states have similar programs in place.
In 2009, Louisiana lawmakers passed a Second Amendment sales tax holiday on guns and ammunition that remains in effect.
The tax-free weekend costs the state nearly $600,000 dollars a year.
