There was a great deal of concern about protests at the Republican National Convention, especially because people are allowed to openly carry weapons. Last night, demonstrators took aim at that and the fact that while guns are allowed in the protest zone around the convention site, tennis balls are not.
Authorities say the balls could be used as weapons. The protesters tossed the tennis balls onto the street, forcing the police to swoop in to fetch them.
