Gun Hating Principal Bans Mother From School For Having A CCW Permit

angry-teacher-pointing

Janina Dallas, the principal of McBean Elementary School in Hephzibah, GA,  has involved the police department in banning a student’s mother from the buildings and school property.

The mother banned is Tanya Mount.  What did Tanya do that was so dangerous that it warranted Dallas taking these extreme measures?

Mount took a picture of her recently issued Georgia CCW and posted it on facebook.

While I wouldn’t have posted my carry permit or any form of ID on social media there is no crime in that.  And if Mount was excited by getting hers and wanted to show her friends then I do not see the harm.

Yet, Mount, an Army veteran, soon would discover what harm an irrational, hoplophobic administrator on a power trip can cause.

The Principal, Janina Dallas, was somehow made aware of the photo showing that Mount had her CCW and as such contacted police to issue a trespassing warning.  Effectively meaning that if Mount were to be on school property again she would be subject to arrest.

Mount, who was a volunteer at the school for her disabled daughter, was blindsided and recounts the conversation she had with the police officer who spoke to her about it:

“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”

Apparently, in Hephzibah, GA, being in the army and having your CCW makes you a danger to society and therefore it is somehow acceptable to ban you from school grounds.

What does Dallas say in her defense?

“There have been a number of school shootings in our country. And inevitably, people will say they saw signs and things of that nature after the fact.”

A few problems with this crock of bs.  If Mount, or anyone really, were intent on doing harm, being “banned” from school grounds is as effective as school grounds being a gun free zone.

Since Georgia all ready has a law barring people from carrying firearms in school, why doesn’t this principal feel safe?

How does this principal get away with this garbage?  Mount was nothing but a model parent volunteering at the school with no word against her (until this photo surfaced), no evidence of dangerous activity or being anything other than a benefit and a loving mother engaged in her daughters education.

How a power-mad, gun and soldier hating despot like Janina Dallas is allowed to keep her job after such an abuse of power, in GEORGIA of all places, is beyond me.

Fortunately, Mount has since removed her daughter from  McBean elementary and transferred her to another school in the district, where hopefully she will not be infected with the vile and disgusting ideology of intolerance of people like Janina Dallas.

Tanya Mount is demanding an apology for having this principal, who styles herself as an all powerful potentate able to dismiss people from her “kingdom” on a whim, treat her so disrespectfully.

I hope that Mount not only gets her apology but that the school district re-evaluates Dallas’ tenure with them and rightfully finds that she is no longer fit to be gainfully employed.

I won’t hold my breath but here’s to hoping.

Anyone who would like to respectfully express their opinion and displeasure on the Principal Dallas’ ridiculous actions can email her directly at: [email protected]

    Stupid is as stupid does. Schools are soft targets and might as well have big, colorful neon signs advertising; “Shooting Gallery Open; We’re too Stupid to Protect the Children.” Of course the obligatory “GUN FREE ZONE” sign would be on all the doors.

      Thanks for passing on that information, i added it to the article.

    Instead of circle-jerking why don’t you post the full story? You know, the one that shows she did other shit before she posted a gun permit on facebook? Or does including the fact that she caused problems before the permit that made the school apprehensive of her having a gun get in the way of emotion? People like this are an albatross to the gun community. We shouldn’t be defending her.

      From the link you put, I got that Ms. Mount was protective of her special needs daughter and maybe there was good reason for it. And why wait until after she got her gun to disclose all these “reasons”. In fact, Mount was such a distraction she should have been banned long before now. But no, the reasons reek of after the fact butt covering on the side of the principal.

      I’ll just use a comment from the link you provided to further bolster my argument:

      It would be great if you gave ALL the information available, such as the fact that Ms. Mount’s daughter is special-needs. Schools get tired of dealing with parents who insist on federally-mandated adaptations being honored for their children. Having a CCW is LEGAL. Not once does the principal, or anyone else, say that this mom, Ms. Mount, has ever come into, or even near, the school with a weapon. Obtaining a legal government document is not grounds for the principals actions. BTW, since when do Boards of Education have their own police forces?! What the heck is that about? Sounds like Georgia has some problems, but Ms. Mount is far from being the biggest problem in the state.

    Ms. Dallas,

    While I fully support and respect your authority as Principal of McBean Elementary, I feel you crossed the line when you issued a ban of Tanya Mount from school property.

    The state of Georgia has laws in place to allow properly vetted citizens the option of fulfilling the requirements of and receiving a license to carry a concealed weapon. I’m sure the law provides for exempted areas such as a school with language like “banned from the following areas” or “unless specifically authorized” somewhere within the bill.

    Your action effectively targeted one individual for exercising their right under the state law, and isolated Tanya Mount for ridicule.

    I would think an educator with your experience would by now have found a way to differentiate between your own biases, and the reality of the situation which in no way suggests Tanya Mount has been, is now, or ever could be, a threat to you or anyone else.

    I hope you reconsider your actions, and set aside your ruling.

    Tanya Mount deserves and has a right to the education of her daughter at any school she chooses, and you have effectively denied her this right.

    The best you can hope for now is to keep your job.

    Worst case: the school board is sued, and you lose your job.

    Then again, maybe a lawsuit is exactly what is needed here.

    Sincerely,

    Brian White

    PS: I too have a CCW, and I demand you issue a ban of myself from all school property.

    I await your confirmation that this request has been completed.
