SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gun-rights activists who grudgingly agreed to a ban on firearms at the 2002 Winter Olympics were angered to learn the venues will not have gun storage lockers.
Spectators are being told to leave firearms behind, the Salt Lake Organizing Committee said. Utah has some of the nation's most lenient firearms laws.
Gun-rights activists expected lockers for Utah's 41,800 concealed weapons permit holders under a 1999 state law.
