A 75% tax credit is provided if a firearm is purchased by an individual and the tax credit limitations are specified in the bill.

The bill does not prohibit the sale and transfer of AR-15’s so long as the resident of the requisite age possesses one during their time as a resident of Missouri. This bill shall sunset December 31, six year after the effective date.”
