RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. - An Army veteran living in Richmond County 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.

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.

McBean Elementary School Principal Janina Dallas says the order was a preventative measure.

"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," said Janina Dallas, principal of McBean Elementary School.

"I'm not a criminal. I've never been to jail, I've never been arrested. I was like, 'What is this for?'" Mount said.
