The Democratic Governors Association's (DGA) creative director on Monday shared a tweet calling it "terrorism" to legally carry rifles.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Democratic Governors Association's (DGA) creative director on Monday shared a tweet calling it "terrorism" to legally carry rifles.

Zainab Javed has previously called for guns to be taken away but she took it a step further when she retweeted a left-wing Twitter user saying protesters were engaging in acts of terror by being armed.

"To be clear, this is Terrorism. This isn’t a peaceful protest; they’re amassing this heavily armed for the specific implication that if the Virginia Government doesn’t meet their demands, they will incite violence," wrote a Twitter user with the handle @PanasonicDX4500.

Javed and the DGA did not respond to requests for comment.

Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski spoke to attendees and reported the rally was free of violence and racist displays, tweeting that it "was focused on gun rights."

WRIC.com has more on the rally:

Thousands flooded the surrounding streets of the Capitol Monday for a gun-rights rally, however, some locals in the area say the roads are the cleanest they’ve seen in quite some time.

There’s a reason for that, says Matthew Keisling, a protester who made sure that once he shared his message, he went above and beyond to protect it.

“I’ve been in the area when there have been other protests and demonstrations and people leave a lot of trash behind and it waters down the message,” Keisling said.

Advocates told 8News they made sure to clean up after the rally because they felt leaving trash behind “represents the group and the movement very poorly.”

Locals in the city appreciated the gesture, even if it was unexpected.

“They picked everything up and made it look nice,” said Richmond resident Jack Hamilton. “It was really good for them to do that and it looks a lot better and good job.” 

Around 22,000 pro-gun activists took the streets of downtown Richmond. The protest was peaceful, with most of the controversy stemming from the fact that participants cleaned up after themselves.

“There’s just cans and you know boxes and trash on the corners and like sidewalks but it looks a lot better,” Hamilton said. “It really does.”
