    Social Services Worker Fired, Escorted Out by Cops for Having a Gun Permit—NOT a GUN

    A social worker took to Facebook and Twitter to share that she was fired from her job at Roanoke City Social Services in Virginia and escorted from the building by three police officers—not because she came to work with a gun, but because her employer learned that she had a concealed handgun license.

    Storm Durham claimed that she went from working as “a damn good social worker” to being escorted out by police officers who claimed she was a “safety risk to the building.” Her announcement on Twitter received more than 15,000 retweets and more than 20,000 likes:

    Durham posted a longer version on Facebook, in which she wrote that the same department that claims to be devoted to protecting children and families, fired her because they found out that she had applied for a license to protect herself when she was not at work.

    “I was fired today due to having a concealed carry permit,” Durham said. “Was my gun on me? No. Has it ever been on me during my job, or visits, or anything related to work? No. When I told them that it has never been on me during work, what did they say? ‘How do we know that.’ Search me
    I wonder if that os 100% of the reason ?

    I'd sue the town, city or state whoever has the responsibility for record keeping and the individual who leaked the information.

    No leak is necessary, concealed carry permits are not considered privileged information.

    She should hire a good lawyer, unless she has a union and they are providing her with one.

    As a state employee, I can get fired for things I might do outside of the job-an arrest for DUI or possession of an illegal substance, or one that is now legal could get me fired. We are not allowed to carry weapons (except mace) on the job. I don't know MI's gun laws enough to know if it is a crime to have a handgun that you only keep in your house without a permit. I know you can have a shotgun without a permit.
