South Carolina gives gun shoppers tax holidayThursday, November 27, 2008 Seanna AdcoxAssociated Press
Columbia, S.C. - TVs and laptops won't be the only hot items in South Carolina this Black Friday. The state is offering an unusual perk to shoppers: no sales tax on handguns, rifles and shotguns.

The so-called "Second Amendment Weekend" is thanks to a little-debated amendment legislators tacked on this summer to a tax break for energy-efficient appliances.

While the energy-efficiency measure doesn't go into effect until next year, on Friday and Saturday gun buyers won't have to pay state and local sales taxes that can total 8 percent. Taxes still apply to ammunition and accessories.

Actually the info is a little incorrect- the sales tax holiday in SC is for STATE sales taxes only...local sales taxes are still collected.
Went by Sportsmans Warehouse in Columbia SC this morning...took one look at the line at the gun counter and headed back out the door:eek:
