Lawmakers Want to Exempt Gun Purchases from Sales Tax

This would make guns cheaper to buy

Guns could become more accessible under a newly introduced bill in the Ohio House that would exempt guns and ammunition from sales tax in the state.

House Bill 198

“We don’t want to penalize individuals that want to exercise their right,” said State Rep. Josh Williams (R-Oregon). “The government shouldn’t be profiting from responsible gun owners who are attempting to exercise their Second Amendment rights.”

Williams is the cosponsor of House Bill 189, which would eliminate the sales tax on guns and ammunition.
