But, when governors and other state lawmakers in multiple states began going after religion, firearms, access to the outdoors and other everyday actions, the people began to push back. It seems they're not alone.

In regards to Trump's comment on wanting the people of Virginia to "save your great 2nd Amendment," the president was seemingly referring to a move by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's decision to sign bills placing restrictions on the public's access to firearms.

People in Michigan protested en masse Wednesday afternoon, taking part in a protest of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's far-reaching stay-at-home order.
Here's video of the protest that was called, "Operation Gridlock":
