He said customers spent months finding guns, ammo, and accessories they wanted, then flooded in during the tax-free holiday to purchase them.

WDSU also spoke to Academy Sports' Darren Riley, who said a lot of first-time gun buyers came in during the weekend tax holiday to get firearms for self-defense.


    Riley said that people who have been "a little concerned about some of the things... [they've seen going on] across the city" came in while the prices were down and got a firearm for their own safety.


    Louisiana created their tax-free weekend for guns sales in 2009, while this year

    was Mississippi's inaugural tax-free weekend.
