State encourages energy efficiency

(Below is the entire article.)
"[COLUMBIA] Whether you're shopping for a shotgun or an energy-efficient washing machine, S.C. lawmakers want to give you a tax break. This week, House lawmakers gave key approval to a bill that:
"8226; Exempts handguns, rifles and shotguns from state sales tax during the biggest shopping weekend of the year. "Second Amendment Weekend" is scheduled for the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving 2009.
"8226; Allows South Carolinians buying energy-efficient appliances to also forego the state sales tax. Dishwashers, dryers, even fluorescent light bulbs would be exempt from state sales tax from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. The tax-free Energy Efficiency Month also would begin next year."

It sounds like very forward thinking to me. The problem is that there are too many people on the planet to make it sustainable. More guns on the street should cut down on the population and those that are left won't need to worry about saving electricity because there will be plenty to go around. :-)

Side story: The original bill was for then energy-efficient stuff. Republicans added the gun idea as a "poison pill." The amended version passed unanimously.
See, you can compromise with the earth-huggers.
At least in South Carolina.

Firearms are very "green" . They can last for many many years are are not often discarded in landfills
