An Army [2] veteran in Georgia is outraged after her daughter’s school banned her from campus because she posted a photo of her concealed weapons license on Facebook [3].

Tanya Mount [4] said she is being targeted by the principal of McBean Elementary School [5] in Hephzibah, where her disabled daughter attends. According to the mother, who volunteers at the school [5], she was approached by a police officer from the Richmond County Board of Education [6] and was warned that she was about to get a criminal trespass warning, WRDW-TV reported [7].

“He tells me that ‘We’re going to issue you a criminal trespass warning,’” she recalls the officer as saying. “‘The principal is scared of you and she doesn’t want you on the grounds.’ I ask for what? And he asks, ‘Were you in the Army [2]?’ and I said, yes. He’s like, ‘Do you have a concealed weapons permit?’ I said, yes.”

Miss Mount [4] said she was ultimately banned because she posted a picture of her new concealed weapons permit on her Facebook [3] page.
