    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a rally Friday, June 17, 2016, in The Woodlands, Texas.

    Donald Trump emphatically told a Texas crowd Friday night that when he wins the presidency, people will call the White House to say they "can't believe you've saved the Second Amendment,” NBC News reported.

    "We're going to save your guns," Trump roared to the thousands in a Houston hotel ballroom. "They're not going to take away your bullets. They're not going to shorten up your magazines. They're not going to do anything."

    Trump also said it would have been a "beautiful sight" to see the Orlando gunman shot by someone armed at the nightclub last week.

    "If we had people where the bullets were going in the opposite direction, right smack between the eyes of this maniac," Trump began to openly consider. He then added: "That would've been a beautiful, beautiful sight, folks." 

    But despite his colorful denouncement of gun restriction efforts, Trump did not specifically refer to the gun measures that the Senate is expected to vote on next week.
