By most accounts, gun sales in Oklahoma have surged.  

For some reason, State Representative Mike Turner (is he like 12 years old? Seriously.) wants to pass a bill that would drop the sales tax on guns for 1 weekend a year.

If sales are strong, why would you cost the state revenue?  Governor Mary Fallin is determined tophase out state income tax (i.e. benefit the wealthy) which would require raising sales tax (harm the middle class and poor).  We already have a tax holiday at the end of summer to help families buy new clothes for the school year, and that I support 100%. It certainly helps retailers.  Gun sales are FINE, they are healthy.  The best thing to boost gun sales are school shootings and elections of democrats.  

Oklahoma also taxes groceries.  There is no tax holiday on fruits and milk. But some kid in OKC wants to go tax free on guns?

Of course Noddy and Itzl recently did a dairy on a proposal to bypass any laws signed by Obama by giving guns with the "made in oklahoma" mark in it, making them untouchable by federal laws.  

And the sheriff for the county in which I reside says he will not enforce any of the new "obama gun laws".

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
