Second Amendment sales tax weekend starts Friday

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Outdoor enthusiasts will hit the stores in force this Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the Second Amendment sales tax weekend.

The tax breaks will begin Friday at 12:01 a.m. and last until midnight Sunday.

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said a break will be offered for dozens of items such as hunting gear, gun safes, archery equipment and ammunition.

"Hunting is the favorite pastime of so many Mississippians and a major tourism draw for rural areas," Reeves said. "The Second Amendment sales tax holiday is a way to make these sports a little less expensive and encourage more families to enjoy the outdoors."
