    I wear Cavalry Sabers on a Black Stetson, since I was in three Cavalry units in my career. BUT NOT on the Indian Reservation when I visit friends. (Not a good idea). Just be aware of where you are and who with.

      I kind of view its message as similar to the Gadsden flag. I have a Stars and Bars that I display inside my house not out front. I might fly it outside sometime though. I would maybe think twice about wearing it in some places, but generally I don't think its a problem. Some people associate with racist stuff, but alot don't.

        Look at the Florida State Flag it has the Bars but no Stars, its on every PD and State Trooper units it when you put stars on it...That a problem!

        We have a New car Tag with the Stars and Bars on it,
        to Honor the Florida Confederate Units..?

            There are other Confederate flags than the Stars-and-Bars which you can display proudly and when asked actually tell people what it means to you. The Stars-and-Bars has become known as a symbol of racism to many because they have been brainwashed by the left of this country. If you wear it some places, you risk sending the wrong message.

            Here are some examples of other flags to display:

            As a gunowner, I prefer the Gonzales Flag (Come and Take It).

                I believe my first post pretty much explained the problem. Symbols have been around for many many years. Their meaning has been changed through the millennium. If you live in a microcosm everything is fine. If you step out of that small area. It may be a signal that is read differently. Unless you put a disclaimer under that Swastika tattoo saying wait a minute this is only a Hindu symbol for the Sun. Well you see what I'm saying. The problem with symbols is the should say what they are and not be open to interpretation. You don't see any racist a**hole wearing a Stop Sign on their hat because it's meaning is well defined.
