Florida has a "hurricane tax holiday" once a year, at the beginning of the hurricane season, in which you don't have to pay any state sales tax on emergency hurricane supplies. I wonder if we could get spare ammo included in the definition of "emergency hurricane supplies."

Actually they did not have it this year & no you couls not get ammo tax free, just flash lights, batteries & such. I like the Idea, these people need to think outside the box. Be nice to pick up an $800 AR tax free as well.

I build up stuff year round, and since I buy my ammo by mail order that wouldn't help. One suggestion: Publix and Winn Dixie frequently have buy one/get one sales. When they do, I buy as much of the nonperishable sale items as I can. By doing this, I live off the stored sale items, which allows me to only buy when things are on sale.

I do the same with freezable stuff, as well. This plan also has the side effect of ensuring that I have nearly 3 months of food stored away.

Not for hurricanes in particular but along sales tax holiday lines, South Carolina this year passed the "Second Amendment Recognition Act" which was part of a larger sales tax bill. It exempts handguns, rifles and shotguns from the state sales tax during "Second Amendment Weekend", the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, starting this year.

Act No. 338 SECTION 2. (A) This section may be cited as the "Second Amendment Recognition Act".

(B) Section 12-36-2120 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 116 of 2007, is further amended by adding a new item at the end appropriately numbered to read:

"( ) sales of handguns as defined pursuant to Section 16-23-10(1), rifles, and shotguns during the forty-eight hours of the Second Amendment Weekend. For purposes of this item, the 'Second Amendment Weekend' begins at 12:01 a.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving and ends at twelve midnight the following Saturday."

(C) This section takes effect July 1, 2008.
