[Video] GA Mother Banned From Daughter’s School b/c She Posted Photo of Carry Permit On Facebook
A mother in Augusta, GA has found herself banned from her daughter’s school.
The reason? The mother served in the Army and now, as a law abiding citizen, possesses a license to carry a firearm.
Apparently these reasons alone were enough for the mother to be banned from the school because the principal there felt threatened.
According to WRDW,
“I feel like a criminal. I want I want to be heard. I want a public apology,” says Mount. On Wednesday, Mount says she was handed a notice from Richmond County Board of Education police.
“He tells me that were going to issue you a criminal trespass warning,” says Mount. The notice banned her from McBean Elementary School where her disabled daughter attends.
She asked what she did wrong. “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 and I said yes. He’s like do you have a concealed weapons permit? I said yes,” says Mount.
Mount who is a parent volunteer says she is banned from the school for posting a picture of her new concealed weapons permit on her Facebook page.
Under GA law, since she was issued a trespass warning, Mount could be arrested if she returns to the school.
Mount was allowed to transfer her daughter to another school within the district following the incident.
It should be noted that the reporters mistakenly call the carry permit a concealed weapons permit. In GA, possession a carry license allows for both concealed and openly carrying weapons.
