I found citations from 2012 and 2009:

And I antedated "gundamentalist" to a 1926 item in the New Yorker:

Subject: "ammosexual"

Several times lately I've come across the term "ammosexual" for what we used
to all a "gun nut." 

I assume it's a satirical coinage, and it seems to be not very old (2014?).
