Public school bans mom for posting concealed-carry permit on Facebook

The Daily Caller has found yet another heroically stupid school principal who can’t tell the difference between something that sort of, kind of represents a gun and a real, actual gun.

The principal this time is Janina Dallas at McBean Elementary School in a suburb of Augusta, Ga.

Dallas banned the mother of a disabled girl at the school because she posted a picture of her new concealed-carry permit on Facebook, reports local CBS affiliate WRDW.

The mom, Tanya Perry-Mount, who had been a volunteer at the school, is not happy.

“I feel like a criminal. I want — I want to be heard,” she told WRDW. “I want a public apology.”

According to Perry-Mount, the principal met with her a couple weeks ago.

“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 grownup things,” Perry-Mount told the CBS affiliate.

It’s not clear if the gun permit ever came up at the meeting. Whatever the case, last week, an officer from the local board of education police issued  a trespass warning to Perry-Mount, which banned her from the grounds of McBean Elementary.

She asked what she had done wrong.

Perry-Mount said the cop told her: “The principal is scared of you. She doesn’t want you on the grounds.”

“I’m like, ‘For what?'” the mad mom explained. “He’s like, ‘Were you in the army?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He’s like, ‘Do you have a concealed weapons permit?'”

Perry-Mount told him defiantly that she does have such a permit.

Principal Dallas would not speak with WRDW.

Meanwhile, the principal’s bosses at the school district level have given Perry-Mount permission to remove her daughter from McBean and transfer her to another district elementary school.
