Veteran Barred From School Property For Facebook Post Of Concealed Carry Permit

0 Shares

Tanya Mount, an Army veteran living in Georgia, claims she was banned from her child’s elementary school after the school’s principal found a picture of the veteran’s concealed carry permit on her personal Facebook page.

Mount told WRDW-TV, that a police officer working for the Richmond County Board of Education approached her recently at McBean Elementary School and advised her that she was going to get a criminal trespass warning for being on school property.

“He asks: ‘Were you in the Army?,”‘ she said. “I said, yes. He’s like, ‘Do you have a concealed weapons permit?’ I said yes,” she told WRDW-TV.

The officer informed Mount that the school’s principal, Janina Dallas, was afraid of her and didn’t want her on the school’s property.

According to the local news station, Dallas confirmed in a follow-up interview that her fear of Mount was related directly to the post of the concealed carry permit.

“It is my duty and responsibility as the principal of this school to ensure the safety and security of all of our faculty, staff and students,” she said.

Mount, who has since transferred her daughter out of the school, said she wants a public apology.

“I am a private person. However, after serving OUR country, it is my DUTY to make sure that our lives are not infringed upon. However, do it all within the confinements of the LAW, I am a law-abiding citizen,” Mount said on Facebook.

    This principal sounds like another Communist plant; just trying to make American feel guilty about their liberties. What separates this gun owner from any; just because her permit was on face book?? It’s people like this soldier that discourage illegal gun owners from committing crimes against school kids. Or would you rather see another school shooting?? It would frighten me much worse to find this Principals Teachers Certificate on face book.

      Schools are government. Constitutional rights of a veteran were violated. If it isn’t settled in court every time it occurs freedom will be lost for good! The principal is obviously disturbed, possibly paranoid & hysterically fearful – needs to be sent to counseling & rehab – maybe a NRA approved course or two to get acquainted with firearms and how to prevent Sandy Hooks from happening.

      She needs to make sure any suit is a jury trial, about the Constitution, and requiring a constitution copy for jury deliberation on “the law”. It trumps all other laws & opinions! ALL JUDGES federal & state are oath and duty bound to essentially unconditionally defend the Constitution. Apparently, Amendments 1, 2, 9, & 14 are definitely violated, as well as 1, 4, 5, & 6 depending on what happened.

      It gets real serious when “color of law” is used to deny Constitutional Rights & same is true when using official government powers of office.

      Resurrect the Constitution. Force judges to enforce every word in the Constitution!

      If the principal wants to teach in a gun free zone – quit & get a job in Chicago or Detroit.

        LOL boy will she be in for a surprise!!

          Perhaps 90% will walk away, let it happen, gripe about it, then comply and soon line up for whatever tyranny tells them to do. Evil will fight for its life. The first obstacle is the 90% DA who has the authority to deny prosecution, and the 90%ers up the line who will not override the DA. The key is electing or forcing appointment of a DA who will prosecute, even if its a misdemeanor charge. True blue progressive groupies are petrified by guns, global warming, and an enforced Constitution. A minor fine and job loss would be a huge victory for the Constitution.

          Civil suit is another matter, where one could ask for $25 or a million plus legal & court costs plus walk around the courthouse all day with a “I won’t violate the Constitution again”, sign, King & the folks in Mississippi eventually won & put some teeth & $$$ in the Constitution… even after death. I hope this vet will have the fire to do something like $25, costs, & carry the sing thing – regain the reputation, dignity, & Constitution that she put her life on the line to defend… that would speak louder than any money could ever do!

      Those running the liberal one dimensional idiot-ologic non-education indoctrination system that masquerades as public education have simply lost whatever minds they once possessed; and their
      ridiculous, mind-numbed zero-tolerance policies are causing kids and parents all manner of hardship and even resulting in criminal
      records for victimless non-crimes. And the governments of New York and California have long ago divested themselves of common sense and restraint.

      To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

      We need to shut public schools down NOW!

  • squeeze127

    She deserves an apology as well as a thank you for services rendered!

    • Vis Fac

      The principal needs to issue an apology then write on the black board I will not be stupid and afraid of a piece of paper” 500 times then receive a pink slip and sued. After which the district should undergo the same!!

      Personally I wouldn’t want anyone who is afraid of their own shadow anywhere near my children let alone teaching them Which is probably ours were home schooled. The grand kids did attend public school for a short time then went to private school

      Both my wife and I have CCW permits and have carried many times on campus and no one was the wiser anyone ask me a question I am uncomfortable with I simply say no or I don’t know end of grilling.

      Tis better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it

        Oohh, the Liberal mind works in reverse osmosis fashion! Exactly how the Liberal agenda works, penalize the law abider and reward the criminal. No good deed goes unpunished! That’s the rule of them.

        • Vis Fac

          It would be nice if that were true for when using reverse osmosis you get a better product namely purer water. Unfortunately anything coming from a liberal is COUNTER productive meaning no good what-so-ever USELESS.

          Their main goal is total control and the Socialist elite have promised to share the wealth. Well with socialism somebody is going to get something but that somebody will not be them. ODUMBO has promised transparency and more food stamps for those who need them We have yet to see ANY transparcancy and those on food stamps will be receiving $35 less per month. This is the beginning of the end (in small increments)

          To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

            I stay away from ALL social media. I don’t need unauthorized meddling into my affairs I mostly contact people via email (which can be read by anyone) but what I gay is generally generic in nature If I have something important I go low tech and meet in person.

        Especially a piece of paper on facebook!!It is ok for them to teach our children islamic religion in school and communist leanings( right now in Tx) but a mother that has served this country cannot have a CCP?

        • Vis Fac

          The issue was never not allowing her to have a CCP but the fact she had one but a phobic MORON was made principal of a school and UNILATERALLY bared her for having the piece of paper.

          This is what happens when you let Liberal MORONS be in charge. Liberals have problems with being rational and accepting reality so they form opinions from emotional reactions rather than any actual threat.

          Liberals don’t have the intellect or the character to take care of themselves let alone anyone else!!!

        Definitely lawsuit time…

          Had it been me you could rest assured I would have sued. First the principal personally this to make her pony up for her own defense, then to district to teach them why we have our constitution.

      The Idiots are the ones who have a petty ego page and post their private information. Why would anyone make information available to anyone who can take it and use it for nefarious purposes or as in this case use it as leverage? You are just asking for trouble just because you have an ego to satisfy.

      Anonymity has been and always will be my greatest ally. I have no ego to stroke and if you want any personal information on me you have to be tenacious and find out for yourself. I’m not going to just hand it over.

        I personally agree and that is why I carry concealed. Stealth is my friend, but what of the citizens that are lawfully able and wish to open carry?

        • Vis Fac

          The general demonizing of firearms is coming for the extreme left who have an agenda of people control. The best way to get rid of anything you want is to sway public opinion against it.

          The Socialist elite are AFRAID of armed people because armed people are citizens unarmed people are subjects. If they are patient they will achieve their goals by first planting a seed that guns are evil and you should be afraid hence the “stupids” buy into this by banning open carry, then concealed carry then outlawing certain firearms then outlawing ALL firearms.

          Two things these “stupids” don’t take into account 1) first and foremost our pesky second amendment and 2) technology is forever and once something has been invented it cannot be un-invented.

          I have the skills and technology to fabricate most anything a firearm would not be that difficult to fabricate. I have enough chemical knowledge to amalgamate ingredients foe a suitable propellant so ammunition wouldn’t be that much of a challenge.

          Since I have been manufacturing my own ammunition for decades I prefer to use readily accessible components in doing so have amassed a respectable amount.

          To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

        you got that right ! however when the time comes i well be the one eating the fattened up wolf lol

        • Vis Fac

          I believe there are more of us than that wolf would care to admit. When the going gets tough the wolf’s support will go shopping to fine the nearest safe haven ally with.

          There are literally millions of us but relatively few wolf supporters.

    This should be be a wake up call for those who believe in the 2nd Amendment. Contact your Representative or Senator, both state and fderal and advise them that schools and churches must allow citizens to carry a gun if they wish to. If the pastoer of the church does not want to allow carry then he/she must post signs at each entrance informijng their congregation that he/shedoes not allow guns. As far as schools are concerned the law should allow any parent, guardian or other person with a chid in the school MUST be allowed unfettered access to the school.

    egomaniac and only one side is reported. Where is the real report? Not just the one-sided version from someone who wants their 15 minutes of fame?

    ” “I am a private person. However, after serving OUR country, it is my DUTY to make sure that our lives are not infringed upon. However, do it all within the confinements of the LAW, I am a law-abiding citizen,” Mount said on Facebook.”

    Well??? ~ advertising your ticket to carry on Facebook is not private. There is nothing private about such an “act”. Which does in and of itself displays poor judgement on this “subject’s” part. ~

    Maybe she is a nut? maybe she’s not ~ Why allow the answer to be “my” problem?

    Get her out of here! This is not baseball, three strikes and you are “out”!

    Adminstration is playing “conservative” ball, and I for one don’t blame them.

  • CommonSense4America

    Geeeze,,,I’m glad I don’t have kids in school nowadays. The school officials just make my head hurt. Unbelievably stupid. She needs to SUE the school board,,,and coming from someone that does not believe in suing, that says a lot.

  • BHR

    The principal knows she is no threat, he just wants to show his power. Another power hungry liberal. These are the people who are educating our children.

  • Toy Pupanbai

    What idiot puts personal details on FaceBook?

    • Jimmy the Greek

      the same ones that have facebook acc .

  • Don

    Typical school administration drone that we all wish would pay as much thought to making sure students were being taught the things that really mean something in this world like manners and respect, and not just force fed from a text book that more than likely was nor read and approved by any authority to make sure what is in the book is even acceptable or not, and I’m sure this scared principal could tell you.

    This educator needs some courses on how to deal sensibly with parents of the children in a school she has been entrusted to run in a humanitarian way and not create this type of open confrontation.

    In looking at this totally unbiased is difficult because my wife and myself started out in the teaching profession, but became dissatisfied as time passed,due to teaching becoming secondary to “handling” students and memorization techniques with no thinking on their own, you know like the way they do in many of our schools today, and it is very disappointing!

    We think this principal is educated far beyond her intelligence, and owes this
    US hero an open apology for the way she and her superiors treated this law abiding citizen, because some day she might need someone like Tanya to protect her and the students from some maniac that probably couldn’t read all of those “gun free zone ” signs, and Tanya would be my first choice in that
    situation!

    Was it ever decided if Tanya was packing heat or not???

    GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS TANYA!

  • Alan

    And just exactly what did this principle have to fear from a posted concealed carry permit? For heavens sake, she, her faculty and the students couldn’t even get a paper cut from it! It’s not like Miss Mount had broken the “gun-free zone” law and brought a weapon on the campus after all, an innocent action that shouldn’t invoke a fearful reaction in and of itself. These people frighten way too easy. They seem unstable and thus unfit for being responsible for the safety of our children.
