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.

      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

      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.

        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.

        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?

  • Dajeno

    Just another idiot without any common sense!

      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.

      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 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?

  • WilliamHarrington

    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.

      Just ask yourself,,,what would Jesus do? He would defend His people.

    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.
