Killeen reader says campus watch programs would make kids safer

To the Editor:

Do we really want our right to own firearms modified? When we start modifying our amendments, it makes more waves and will drown the most basic rights and liberties. We all want our schools safer for our children, and that needs to start right there. If parents and local law enforcement would get together and start a campus watch, maybe we would catch the problem before it falls on our children.

Taking it to Washington isn’t the place we need to go, we need to start right here in our community. It’s not an inconvenience to be more mindful for the lives and safety of our schools. Trust me — the more we show our involvement in our children’s lives, there will be no reason for us to miss something wrong.
