"Are there any guns or weapons in the house/vehicle" is a standard issue question by law enforcement. A police officer will ask this question before entering a dwelling or searching a vehicle.

It has as much to do with the complaintant causing harm to the assailant as it does with the assailant causing harm to the complaintant with the complaintant's own weapon(s). It is also a safety issue for police officers responding to the scene presently or in the future.

A few years ago, we called the police about a tenant. We feared the tenant would cause us harm in our sleep or burn the house down. The first question the police officer asked when he stepped up to the threshold was, "Are there any guns or weapons in the house?" Yes, there is a gun. "You may want to think about removing the gun from the house until this issue is resolved." Considering all of the circumstances, the gun went on vacation to grandma's house. It removed the risk of the gun being used by the creep on himself, on the police or on us.

It also removed the temptation to take the creep out.
