Army veteran Tanya Mount was banned from her daughter’s school after posting a photograph on Facebook of her updated concealed weapons permit. Mount received a criminal trespass warning statement in the mail from the Richmond County Board of Education Police.

The principal is scared of you, she doesn’t want you on the grounds,” police told Mount.

Georgia school principal Janina Dallas confirmed the Facebook post was indeed the reason for banning the parent from school grounds.

“It is my duty and responsibility as principal of this school to ensure the safety and security of all of our faculty staff and students,” Dallas told ABC news affiliate WJBF. She pointed to the number of school shootings around the country as being the reason for preventative measures.

Mount feels as though she is being treated like a criminal. The veteran told Fox News:

"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 transferred her daughter to another school district and has asked for a public apology from principal Dallas.

So, why was the elementary school principal trolling the personal Facebook posts of her students’ parents anyways? Mount's daughter is disabled, and the mother was giving her time to the school as a volunteer. If a school shooting were to occur, the children would be much safer with a former military personnel armed and ready on the scene.
