No Guns Allowed During NRA Convention Speech By Trump, Pence: The Two-Way: NPR

A notice posted on the NRA event page explained that “Due to the attendance of the Vice President of the United States, the U.S. Secret Service will be responsible for event security at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum. As a result, firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance.”

A second page lists prohibited items, including selfie sticks, backpacks, signs, drones, laser pointers, toy guns and weapons of any kind.

It is standard operating procedure for the Secret Service to coordinate security wherever the vice president travels, Secret Service officials told NPR. And the agency has “authority to preclude firearms from entering sites visited by our protectees, including those located in open-carry states,” it said in a statement.
