Well, if most of them are anything like the TV show it's mostly idiocy.
It's funny how a few bags of rice and some rainwater barrels make idiots feel like they'll live forever.

A true prepper is nothing like what you see on TV. Prepping is nothing more than an insurance policy against a possible rainy day. Like, you don't expect your house to burn down but, you'll carry homeowner's insurance just in case. You don't expect to be in a car crash but you'll have car insurance. It just makes sense and it's not that big a deal.
I'm get that as the scenario, but it's still not actually clear to me what the guns are preparing them for.
Are they planning to come take my ramen noodles or something?
Are they planning to defend their ramen noodles from me?
Are they planning to kill whoever they feel like, since they finally can? I mean here, not over in Iraq and Afghanistan, or Vietnam for some of them?

Guns are just part of a complete toolkit. The primary purpose is for harvesting of game for food. Secondary is protection against those that didn't prep and are threatening to harm through unlawful acts those that did. This is why "most" preppers do not broadcast who they are.
