A Georgia dad has filed a lawsuit against his daughter’s elementary school, saying he has the right to bring a gun to school.

Hugh Myers took legal action after the school principal told him he’d be arrested if he brought his gun on school property — unless he was dropping off or picking up his daughter, according to the local Fox affiliate in Atlanta.

According to the suit, Myers frequently attends educational activities at Beulah Elementary School in support of his daughter and wants to come armed for his own safety.

And a new law appears to give him that right.

Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed the “Safe Carry Protection Act,” aka the “guns everywhere bill,” into law in April.

According to USA Today, the new law allows:

“…licensed gun owners in Georgia and visitors from 28 other states to bring a gun into a bar without restrictions and carry a firearm into some government buildings that don’t have security measures. It also allows school districts to decide whether they want some employees to carry a firearm and religious leaders to decide whether to allow licensed gun owners to tote to their church, synagogue or mosque.”

Myers’ attorney, John Monroe, says his client has every right to bring a gun to school.

“The principal claims something that is not true,” Monroe said. “The Principal is saying it’s still a crime to carry a gun in school for a person with a license, and that’s just plain not true.”
