Get the guns rotation and apply it to the bullets rotation.
Something like

 bullet.rotation = gun.rotation

Another thing, the bullet should not be a child of the gun. It should be a child of the level itself so if you instanciate it at the gun scene make sure you declare it as so.

get_parent().add_child(bullet)

yeah but, for example, if im aiming down, the gun have to shoot down, if im aiming up, the gun have to shoot up

Add a position2d node in your gun Scene at the end of the muzzle and when you create your bullets make their global position to be there.
