The 2A Tax Holiday is Almost Here for This Lucky State

Recommended Posts



Get ready gun lovers – Mississippi’s Second Amendment Tax Holiday is back!


From 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 25th until midnight on Sunday, August 27th, shoppers can purchase certain firearms, ammunition and accessories without having to pay the state’s seven-percent sales tax.


This will be Mississippi’s fourth such weekend, thanks to a 2014 law mandating the annual event.


“It’s actually bigger for us than Black Friday,” Todd Sarotte, manager of Van’s Sporting Goods in Brandon, tells The Clarion Ledger. “It’s grown every year, and for the last two years it’s been bigger than Black Friday for us.”

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
