Posting Knives and Guns on Facebook....Trouble?

According to published reports an Army veteran was banned from her daughters school after posting pictures of, get this, not a weapon, but a weapons permit on her Facebook page.

The report goes on to say:

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.

"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"

- Tanya Mount

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 FoxNews.com to Richmond County Board of Education was not immediately returned. WJBF.com 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 WJBF.com.

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.
