What state would driving around like that be a problem in? In Mississippi
and most places in the deep south, seeing very camoflaged(sp?) people
driving around very heavily armed in pickups with NRA stickers just means
it's hunting season. Having grown up in the deep south, I know of no
instance of hunters (or anyone really) being harrased for driving around
like this (other than poachers, spotlighters, baiters, etc). You're more
likely to be harassed if you're NOT driving like this during hunting season.

It is still very acceptable and *expected* in most rural areas in the deep
south that young boys (and occaisionaly girls) will be taught to hunt and to
shoot pistols, rifles and shotguns. Drive into any small rural town in the
deep south during hunting season (late fall and winter) and you'll find that
the majority of the male population is heavily armed. Of course, driving
around like this with Ohio or New Jersey license tags would probably incur
the wrath of pretty much everyone, cops and hunters included. Damn Yankees!
