The proposed bill was written by Republican State Representative Jeff Leach of Plano.

In additions to shotguns, handguns, and rifles...item like deer stands, archery equipment, ammunition, and gun cleaning supplies would be tax-free.

Leach has been quoted saying encouraging lawful gun ownership will benefit taxpayers and boost economic growth.
