Do Legislators pack heat into Jazz games?

After learning that four Utah Legislators made a show of turning their guns into the NRA before going into Hill Air Force Base and an Oil Refinery, it led me to ask one question:

Do these same legislators, when attending Jazz games on the lobbyists' dime, pack their guns? Or do they hand them to an NRA rep for safe keeping?

In case you didn't know, Energy Solutions Arena, a privately-owned facility, doesn't allow weapons.


[UPDATE 8/20/07 4:08 PM] As per Misty's comment below, I don't want to infer that the legislators are packing heat into Jazz games. Trust me, if I knew for sure that they were packing heat, you would have heard about it from numerous sources by now....

Making a show if it did seem a bit silly, but I have to wonder why you would insinuate that the Utah Legislators might be doing something illegal such as carrying into the Energy Solutions Arena? Do you know something that the rest of us don't?

A lot of the gun nuts consider packing heat a constitutional right that trumps a property owner's prohibition. So legislators who fall into that camp wouldn't consider it "illegal" to carry a gun into a Jazz game.
