katt williams (mouth open)*You gotta love the Katt man. Not!

As we reported, he spent some time in the pokey yesterday and part of last night for gun-related child endangerment.

When a photog from TMZ caught up with him he posed this thought: “How do you keep kids safe without guns?”

Katt was arrested and his 4 kids were taken away after his house was raided by cops, who found numerous guns and illegal drugs.

Williams told us the guns were secured in a locked box, adding, “If the police come in and raid my place and break into my gun boxes, you’re gonna find guns! I’m not in a gang, what difference does it make?”

Katt also told our photog there were no drugs at his house — well … he admits there was weed, but says, “Weed is not a drug.”

Katt, to you it’s not, but to the authorities, it is and that’s all the excuse they need. Duh.
