District Growth

Roy J Smith Middle School students eat lunch in the school's cafeteria Friday, Nov. 3, 2017. 

The first year all students and staff were required back on campus after the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted learning, the Killeen Independent School District saw a spike in the number of guns found at school.

More than 70% of the firearms found in the past three years on Killeen ISD property occurred during the last school year, according to KISD weapons data received Thursday in response to the Herald’s public information request.

Those thugs keep stealing them in burglaries

How many of them were legally owned, we don't want the media portraying innocent kids and needing more gun laws.

It's already illegal from kids owning guns and you must be 21 to carry

And it's a gun free zone.. thugs
