Public school principal bans parent/Veteran from her childs own school

12 On Your Side: Banned from child's elementary school for Facebook picture?

An Army veteran living in Georgia says she wants an apology from her daughter's former school after being banned from the building for posting a photo of her concealed weapons permit to her Facebook page, reports.

Tanya Mount says she was approached by a police officer from the Richmond County Board of Education at McBean Elementary School and was warned that she was about to get a criminal trespass warning.

The officer told her that the principal at the school was “scared” of her and did not want her on the school property, she told the station.

"He asks: 'Were you in the Army?,"' she said. "I said, yes. He's like, 'Do you have a concealed weapons permit?' I said yes," she told the station.

A phone call from to Richmond County Board of Education was not immediately returned. asked Janina Dallas, the school's principal, if the "no trespass order" was issued over the post, and Dallas responded: "Yes, it was."

"It is my duty and responsibility as the principal of this school to ensure the safety and security of all of our faculty, staff and students," Dallas told

Mount reportedly said, "I feel that this is some high school crap." She is calling for a public apology.

"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 posted on Facebook after the uproar.

Other posts on Mount's Facebook page are photographs of children trick-or-treating and recipes for pork tenderloin.

Her daughter has since transferred from the school.

I suspect a few of you may wish to voice your opinion.

Insane... How is posting pics a danger to the faculty and staff? I work in a school district and that would by no means make me feel unsafe!

Posting a pic of your CHL should do the opposite of scaring the principle.

Here's what I pull up to my sons school with every morning:
