There's a Catch

Sure, some people are allowed to carry guns, because it's legal. Some people aren't, because of American Common Law which says that certain laws only apply to certain kinds of people. Don't carry a gun to these protests if you want to live.
Cleveland has banned a wide array of items inside a broad zone in downtown Cleveland around the convention site, including water guns, toy guns, knives, aerosol cans, rope, tennis balls and others. But because of Ohio’s open carry laws, protesters who legally own a firearm will be allowed to carry it near the convention center.

Could get absurd where it's OK to gun down people with toy guns, but not real ones. "Sorry, Captain! I thought it was a fake!" "No, officer, it was real. Give me your badge." "But the victim, I mean perpetrator, was black or a hippie at least!" "Oh, ok then."
