Arizona residents who want to exercise their right to peaceful assembly might get more than they bargained for if a single rock is thrown during the protest.

The Arizona Capital Times reported on Wednesday that the state’s Senate has sent a bill to the House after a “17-13 party-line vote” that, among other things, allows for assets to be seized from those involved in any protest in which violence occurs.
