Cheney Gives Speech, Guns Not in Attendance

Bowing to Secret Service requests, Utah Republicans checked their weapons at the door to listen to Vice President Dick Cheney tout the administration's plans for missile defense and increased military spending.

Two knives, 25 guns and ammunition clips brought to a state party convention by Utah residents with concealed weapon permits were stored in lockers.

Gun owners had complained after the Secret Service suggested that people licensed to carry concealed weapons leave them in their cars while the vice president addressed the convention.
