Storage of firearms on board

In one of the other forums it was stated that during a USCG safety inspection they were asked if there were guns on board, which raised the questions: why would they ask, and what are the laws about firearms on board? I assume they are the local state laws out to the 3-mile territorial limit and no laws in international waters. Please - I'm not looking for a ranting screed on gun control, either for or against (We've all heard it all.), nor on whether guns should be on board.
Anyone know what is proper and legal?
