1. keep your mouth shut, you think you may be being helpful answering questions, and by being co-operative they will somehow go away. They won't, they will use your statements against you. You have no obligation to speak to or make any statement to the the police, under any circumstance.
2. As Patrick says get a lawyer, a criminal lawyer. get the best number to contact him at any time.
As the others have said and pictures without testimony of the photographer are not evidence. They could simply be prop guns that happen to look like the guns you own. But do not make any statements as such, your lawyer can do that.
There is a reason very few police officer ever get charged with any thing and if they do get charged they often get off, its because they know enough to cheap their mouths closed. You will not talk your way out of trouble, but you surely can talk your way into it.
If asked questions be polite and ask why they are being asked, ask if you are under arrest, and inform them you will not answer any questions or make any statement until you talk to your lawyer.
