South Carolinians will celebrate more than just Thanksgiving next week.

The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving this year, November 27 and 28, will be the second annual “tax holiday” on firearm purchases in the Palmetto State. Dubbed the “Second Amendment Weekend,” this concept was the brainchild of State Representative Mike Pitts (R-14).

Last year’s inaugural “tax holiday” saw a tremendous surge in firearm purchases, and this year could be just as successful.

The original “tax holiday” law was passed as part of a larger bill, but when that law was struck down by the state Supreme Court, this year’s “Second Amendment Weekend” was restored within the state budget.

This restoration was only for this year, so next year, NRA will work with Representative Pitts to make the “Second Amendment Weekend” a permanent annual event

I wish we had one here too.

I don't NEED any new guns, but I'd find something on a tax free weekend.

Tennessee does have tax free weekend every year, but guns don't qualify. EVERYONE needs a new gun. :D
