President Donald Trump's plan to regulate bump stocks and to support legislation to improve background checks on gun ownership is "disappointing," Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said.

"The [Barack] Obama administration acknowledged they lacked the constitutional or statutory authority to ban bump stocks, so President Trump's memo is disappointing," Massie, the leader of the House's Second Amendment Caucus, told the Washington Examiner.

"What's more worrisome for gun owners, though, is the president's deputy press secretary signaled support for the Trojan-horse 'Fix NICS' bill that was sneaked into the House reciprocity bill last year," Massie said, referring to legislation passed in the House of Representatives that would require federal agencies to report information that might disqualify people from owning guns.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president supports a ban on bump stocks, which are used to make semiautomatic weapons fire at a higher rate.
