Hypothetically, yes. In reality, no. No DA would prosecute that, and no judge would ever instruct a jury in a way that would allow them to convict you for having guns in a safe. Like Hamdan, though, you could be convicted for CCW in your home or business having the gun on your person.
Actually I believe you are wrong on that one.
The concealed weapons statute is a restriction on the manner in which firearms are possessed and used. It is constitutional under Art. I, s. 25. Only if the public benefit in the exercise of the police power is substantially outweighed by an individual's need to conceal a weapon in the exercise of the right to bear arms will an otherwise valid restriction on that right be unconstitutional, as applied. The right to keep and bear arms for security, as a general matter, must permit a person to possess, carry, and sometimes conceal arms to maintain the security of a private residence or privately operated business, and to safely move and store weapons within those premises.
