State Rep. Andrew McDaniel introduced the bill Feb. 27, the first day of session.

Under the proposed legislation, residents who purchase “any semi-automatic rifle that is modeled on the AR-15 rifle design by Aramlite (sic)” could get a 75 percent tax credit to help pay for the weapon.

There have been no hearings and it is not currently on a House calendar, KFVS reported.
