--STORY CONTAINS PROFANE LANGUAGE-- ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee promised supporters in Texas that he would protect their right to bear arms in the wake of a massive shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando where 49 people were killed.
