INTERVIEW: I Was Fired From Government Job For Having A Concealed Carry Permit

Published

Storm Durham tells Big League Politics in an exclusive interview that she was fired from the Virginia Department of Social Services for possessing a concealed carry permit.

“Yesterday my supervisor came and got me out of my office, and asked me to come into our associate director’s office,” Durham told BLP. “There were 3 police officers. The 3 police officers stood outside the office while they told me I was being dismissed from the agency.”

“They said it was a safety factor. She [my supervisor] said you’re a safety risk to our building due to having a concealed carry permit,” Durham said.

“I said, my gun has never even been on the property. She said how do I know that?. I said, search me!” Durham said.

“So then I told them this is discrimination why are you treating me like a criminal?. I said can I go to the bathroom, they said no that’s a safety concern.”

The officers brought Durham to her office and she got her belongings.

How did Durham think the supervisor found out about the concealed carry permit?

“About 2 months ago, my supervisor called me in and said do you feel safe in your home? I said, of course. My boyfriend has no criminal record or anything. He said well we found out there are guns in your home. I said And? What’s the correlation? I said there have always been guns in my home since I was a little kid!”

Durham thinks her firing violated the law.

“I think it’s definitely illegal,” she said.

Durham noted other small details the agency put in writing — such as saying that she missed work due to a concussion and a broken leg, but she had doctor’s notes for those absences and she said they were excused. She also said the department faulted her dress code “because I wore loafers to training one day.”

Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick

She’s reportedly the frontrunner.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
