Dig the gun family stickers... Wouldn't put them on my vehicle though....
Those stick family's anoy the crap out of me..... I have to wonder what happens when they get divorced.. Just put "every other weekend" above the kids?? Or when little Timmy meets a untimely death.... I picture the family huddled around the 'old soccer mom express with a razor blade, everyone is crying.... Dad is scraping Timmy off the glass.....
I saw the sweetest bumper sticker a few months ago it said "my other ride is your mom" l0l

A heat gun (or good hair dryer) works really well. Heat the sticker up so the glue gets tacky. If its a raised decal, use dental floss to "cut" the glue. For the residue you can either mix some paint thinner with water (start with 80/20 paint thinner / water and see how it works). Sometimes if the glue gets warm enough it'll just come off with a regular paint cleaner (auto parts store, wal mart etc...) A fingernail works well for picking glue, as does a credit card. Be gentle though. If the sticker was on there for a while, the paint may be less faded in that area, leaving a "halo" effect. A little polish usually helps blend it a little. Either way, clean it and wax it when your done, since chemicals are rough on a painted finish. It strips all the wax and leaves it vulnerable.
If that doesnt work, draw a red circle around the "PBS", then draw a line through it.
I think that it's a bad idea to let anyone know too much about you, your family, sports, gun preferences or what ever. The less attention that you draw to yourself the better.

Some WD-40 sprayed on a rag wrapped around a finger will also remove the residue.
I use Prep-Sol and If it's being stubborn a little enamel reducer will remove it.
I have these chemicals already on my paint shelf.
ETA: 3M makes a adhesive removing wheel for large jobs like removing body side moldings glue residue and de-badging.
I used my thumbs and enamel reducer to remove the adhesive from my trucks body side moldings,
needless to say my thumbs were quite red and sore.
