A Georgia mother feels she’s being unfairly banned from her disabled daughter’s elementary school after she posted a photo of her new concealed weapons carry license on Facebook.

Tanya Mount, 42, who is a U.S. Army veteran, said she served as a parent volunteer at McBean Elementary School in Hephzibah, Georgia until sometime after she posted the photo of her permit, according to local CBS affiliate WRDW.

“I feel like a criminal. I want I want to be heard. I want a public apology,” says Mount. Mount said she was handed a notice last week from Richmond County Board of Education police.

“He tells me they were going to issue you a criminal trespass warning,” Mount explained, which banned her from her daughter’s school.

When Mount asked what the problem was, she received an unexzpected reply.

“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.

When she met with school principal Janina Dallas she was blind-sided.

“She told me that instead of volunteering at the school and playing on the play ground with my daughter I need to be at home doing grown up things,” Mount said.

“I feel that this is some high school crap. ‘He said she said.’ She should have contacted me instead of taking the legal route which was uncalled for,” says Mount.
