Hephzibah, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) — A mother has been banned from her daughter’s school after she posted her concealed weapons permit on her Facebook page.
Tanya Mount, an Army veteran, was informed by the Richmond County Board of Education police that she would be trespassing if she was stepped foot on McBean Elementary School’s property.
“I feel like a criminal,” Mount told WRDW-TV. “I want to be heard. I want a public apology.”
Mount said she was told by police that school principal Janina Dallas is scared of her because of her weapons permit.
Dallas confirmed to WJBF-TV that Mount was banned from the school due to the Facebook post.
“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,” Dallas said.
Dallas cited recent school shootings as why she was alarmed to Mount posting her weapons permit on Facebook.
“There have been a number of school shootings in our country,” Dallas told WJBF. “And inevitably, people will say they saw signs and things of that nature after the fact.”
Mount posted that she has been haunted after being banned from her disabled daughter’s school.
“I feel that this is some high school crap. He said, she said,” Mount told WRDW. “She should have contacted me instead of taking the legal route which was uncalled for.”
Mount posted on Facebook that she will be going to law school after she gets her paralegal degree.
Mount’s daughter has been transferred to another elementary school.
