For Those Of You Who Think Your Gun Rights Are Safe in the Hands of Liberals Storm Durham’s Story Will Change Your Mind

Elder Patriot – Durham describes herself as a “22 year old blonde who is 5’2 and about 140 pounds who loves everything Disney, pink, and basic,” and “a survivor of a sexual assault.”

She was fired yesterday from her job as a social worker for the Virginia state government or having a concealed carry permit.

Durham made the following post to her Facebook page:

“I was fired today. I was fired by a Department of Virginia… Social Services the people who are supposed to be there to keep kids safe and develop families into better people for each other. I was fired today due to having a concealed carry permit. Was my gun on me? No. Has it ever been on me during my job, or visits, or anything related to work? No. 


I was escorted by not one, not two, but three Roanoke City Police Officers to my office where I packed up months of thank you cards, and pictures of kids I’ve helped. I was escorted by officers who have been with me on visits where I placed a child with a relative due to risks, or when I was hugged by a child because they finally felt safe again. I was told to pack immediately and that I could not even use the bathroom to take a minute for myself because of my “serious safety concerns to the building.” 


For legally having a gun, registering that gun, and having the appropriate documentation for that gun?

Calls to the Virginia Department of Social Services requesting their comments were not returned.

Can you imagine the impact on your right to bear arms if, as Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has warned us, the pending “fix-NICS” legislation is passed this week?

The pending legislation would “require each federal agency and department, including a federal court, to certify whether it has provided to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) disqualifying records of persons prohibited from receiving or possessing a firearm.”
