President Donald Trump said on Sunday that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam cannot be allowed to play with the Second Amendment.

The president was asked by a reporter during the coronavirus task force briefing about the actions certain governors have taken during shutdowns across the country. He said he did not want to call out anyone by name, but did mention Northam's recent gun control bills without calling him by name.

He said, "He’s playing with your Second Amendment, (and) we can’t allow that to happen."

President Trump made similar comments about Northam's gun grab on Saturday, saying "We’re entitled to a Second Amendment....The Democrats in that state....they’re trying to take that Second Amendment right away."
