A US state could soon make it legal for students over the age of 21 to take a gun to university.

The Governor of Georgia will this week decide whether or not to veto a bill, allowing licensed gun holders carry concealed guns into universities and colleges.

If the bill passes, Georgia will become the ninth state to do so.

Last August, a student died at Savannah State University in Georgia after being shot on campus.
