BATON ROUGE - Guns, ammunition and other hunting supplies are exempt from state and local sales taxes this weekend.

The 2014 Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday runs Friday through Sunday and applies to individual consumer purchases of hunting gear, including firearms, ammunition, archery supplies, hunting apparel and off-road vehicles such as all-terrain vehicles designed and intended primarily for hunting.

The exemption does not apply to golf carts, go-carts, dirt bikes, mini-bikes, motorcycles, tractors, motor vehicles which may be legally driven on the streets and highways of Louisiana, or heavy equipment such as cranes, forklifts, backhoes and bulldozers
