Don't come packing to next week's gun rights rally at Virginia's Capitol Square; it will be a gun-free zone.

According to two state officials, Governor Ralph Northam is set to announce a temporary emergency measure on Wednesday afternoon that bans all weapons from the building grounds.

Fearing a repeat of what happened in Charlottesville two years ago, the Democrat will also reveal that credible threats of potential violence and extremism have been made for Monday's event, says the source.

Lawmakers already instituted a ban inside the Capitol and a legislative office building, but outside is under the executive's jurisdiction.
