>> These were really brave people, amazing people.>> Donald Trump meeting Thursday with victim's of last week's stabbing attacks at Ohio State University. Just as the state nears passage of a bill allowing concealed weapons on college campuses. The bill passed by the Republican-led Ohio Senate Wednesday night, and likely to clear the House Thursday before landing on Governor John Kasich's desk.

Ohio would join eight other states with campus carry laws, including Texas, Colorado, and Wisconsin. Andy Sullivan is following the story.>> So if Kasich signs this bill, it's yet another example of the incremental victories that gun rights advocates have been racking up at the state level. The argument on this side is that an armed society is a polite society, that when there is some sort of violent incident, there will be more good armed citizens who can step in and prevent things from getting out of hand.

>> The Ohio law would allow permit holders to carry concealed weapons in college classrooms if university trustees give the okay. Freeing the school from any civil liability. Those who support the bill say last week's attack shows its needed for self defence. A Somali immigrant and Ohio State student plowed his car into a crowd and began stabbing people with a butcher knife, wounding 11, the attack ending when the suspect was shot and killed by a police officer.

>> Curiously, police chiefs oppose these sort of laws, saying that actually things wouldn't be helped at all by having more people with guns. That that would just lead to more chaos, more bullets flying around, etc.>> Trump holding private meetings Thursday with the injured, as well as police and first responders.

>> There hasn't been that much change at the federal level. That could change once Donald Trump takes office. He himself has a concealed carry permit and he said that other states should recognize those laws. They're pushing for reciprocity, the idea that if you have a concealed carry permit in Virginia, for example, you should be able to carry that gun in other states where it's legal.
