Provides a 25% tax credit against personal income taxes for the purchase of gun safety equipment up to $500.
TITLE OF BILL:
to amend the tax law, in relation to providing a tax credit for the
purchase of items relating to firearm safety
To provide a tax credit to those that purchase gun safety equipment
such as safes and vaults, or safety and trigger locks.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1, amends tax law by adding a new section (uu) providing a
twenty-five percent tax credit, "not to exceed five hundred dollars
per year, for the purchase of gun safes and vaults, firearm safety
locks, trigger locks, and other such items designed to ensure the
safe handling and storage of firearms.
Sections 2 is the effective date.
Gun safes and vaults provide a mechanism to keep guns out of unwanted
hands, both children and buglers. In addition, safety and trigger
locks render them unusable to anyone other than the owner. This
legislation provides an incentive for those that own guns to keep
them out of the reach of unwanted hands, and to Prevent accidental
firing or use by anyone who could have stolen such a weapon. This
legislation is a practical way to encourage gun owners to invest in
gun safes and locks. Storing firearms safely helps prevent them from
falling into the wrong hands and protects against gun accidents
resulting from misuse. Nearly one-third of all violent crime in the
United States is committed with guns stolen from the homes of law
abiding Americans. This legislation should unite people from all
ideologies concerned with protecting the welfare of children and
