Salem Communications' radio network has semi-religious gasbags like  Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, Mike Gallagher, Bill Bennett, Janet Mefferd and Richard Land.   It also cashed in on gun ads:
Second Amendment is good business for Salem’s latest Q2.
Last year Salem Communications harvested a bounty of about $700,000 in political revenue, during that heated political year. This year, without an election cycle, Salem did about $400,000 – and CEO Ed Atsinger says that this time, “almost all the political revenue was related to Second Amendment rights, and not political candidates.” So guns, and protecting the rights of gun owners, are doing well for Salem, whose conservative talk stations are a place where such ads would feel at home. In fact, a lot of the Second Amendment money is flowing to Salem Radio Network.
