Officials in Washington, D.C., are implementing tight security measures in anticipation of Sunday’s “Unite the Right 2” rally and ensuing counter-protests marking the one-year anniversary of a deadly white nationalist gathering in Charlottesville, Va.

D.C. Police chief Peter Newsham and Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) on Thursday announced the measures including banning guns from the rallies — even for gun owners with legal permits — and separating protesters and counter-protesters.

“The rules are pretty simple,” Newsham said. “Don’t hurt anyone and don’t break anything.”
