Just drove through southern states on way back north from Florida...why so many confederate flags?

I saw these dudes riding around in a pick up truck on the highway with two huge Confederate rebel flags flying high in the truck, and one of them had a shotgun. I am not sure, but its seemed like it was like a protest against Obama saying he wants to ban assault rifles and huge ammo magazines and other gun control laws.....

    So? What does a confederate flag have to do with Obama? It could out of pride for regional heritage, or to show support for states rights, since that's what the Civil War was about, and the topic of state secession has been floating around quite a bit lately.
