(National Sentinel)Â Anti-Gun Bias: A social worker in Virginia appears to have been punished by her employer because she has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, according to reports.
Storm Durham took to social media to claim that she was fired from her job not because she was armed on the job but simply because she had the permit.
â€œNot the gun, the permit,â€ she wrote Friday, adding that she was escorted out of the building by three police officers for allegedly being a â€œsafety threat to the building.â€
“I was fired today. From Roanoke City Social Services, serving as a damn good social worker. I was fired for having a concealed carry permit. Not the gun, the permit. I was escorted by 3 city police officers bc I am a ‘safety risk to the building,'” she tweeted.

In a follow-up to her original tweet, Durham wrote that she â€œdidnâ€™t even carry on the jobÂ or the property,â€ even though officers told her â€œdailyâ€ that she should carry when going into homes alone as part of her job.
In a Facebook post,Â Durham continued to vent, claiming that while she is a legal gun owner, she has never carried a weapon â€œduring my job, or visits, or anything related to work.â€
â€œWas 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? â€˜How do we know that,’â€ she wrote.
â€œI have a concealed carry permit. I own guns. I hunt. I target shoot. I represent Women hunters and outdoorswomen. Does that make me a criminal? Does that make me a safety risk to others? A big enough safety risk to be escorted by three Roanoke City Police officers?â€ she asked.Â â€œSo scary and threatening that I need to be treated like a criminal?â€
Continuing, Durham said she initially obtained a concealed carry permit because she has been a victim of sexual assault.
Durham said she is considering legal action, though she does not want her job back because she does Â â€œnot want to work for these liberals,â€ according to The Daily Caller.
â€œI am an American. A gun owner. And a proud sponsor of hunting across America, and I, nor my lawyers, judges, or support systems will rest until something is done,â€ she said. â€œUntil someone answers for punishing me and taking away my constitutional right.â€
