If you live on a state border you really get a feel for the contempt other residents have for Mass gun laws. Combine that with this Boston mentality moving out to the suburbs and so much evil is attributed to guns you hate to mention that you shoot targets and or hunt. Worse yet, you don't want to be seen going into the woods as they call the police. "There is a man on my road with a gun!"
"Mam, its hunting season."
