This might depend on where you live. In the early 2000s in oakwood and flowery branch (yes, the flowery branch in that Hee Haw skit) it wouldn't be weird to see shot guns and rifles in the gun rack, which is mounted to the cab of the truck behind the seats, overhead. 

These guns of course are not meant for shooting people, but for hunting. The rifle generally wasn't loaded, but the shotgun was (even though I think this was illegal). 

I would expect that someone would run you off the road and then shoot you with such a setup, rather than the urban phenomenon of shooting through the window with a handgun.
