Firefly / Serenity had daily carry and use of firearms of all types as normal, even for women and high class society. Bars had lockboxes, high class parties had scanners and a butler would help store it for you.
Admittedly, lots of bandits and western style shooting, but everyone is armed.

Swamp People

Doomsday Preppers suggest that people get guns if they do not have them already, and to know how to use them if the need comes up.

How I Met Your Mother

Robin owns several guns, practice shoots them on occasion and takes other characters to shoot with her in a few episodes. It's a minor but known part of her character.
Barney also has a framed display of cartridges in his apartment though it's never shown him with guns.

I think it may have been said, I don't recall. But I just finished an episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and Danny Devito is carrying. He's asked "do you have your gun with you?!"

My show would be "Rick goes Christmas shopping with the wife" or "oh my, I sat wrong and the grip jabbed my ribs!"
That's about as exciting as real life gun carrying gets, aside from trips to the range or hunting.
