‘Let’s kiss the guy with the gun’

It’s tax-exemption time. The House yesterday passed a sales tax exemption for the film industry, and today, House Rev & Tax held hearings on a couple more – including one proposed by Rep. Bill Sali, R-Kuna, to exempt shooting range fees from sales tax.

According to S-R reporter Meghann Cuniff, always feisty Rep. Lenore Barrett, R-Challis, said, “We just gave entertainment a big old kiss the other day. Let’s kiss the guy with the gun.” To which Rev & Tax Chair Dolores Crow, R-Nampa, responded, “We know you know about guns.”

For those who don’t remember, Barrett was stopped at the Boise airport a few years back with a handgun in her purse – she’d forgotten to remove it before flying.
