Title: 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.”

Durham described herself as a “22-year-old blonde who is 5’2 and about 140 pounds who loves everything Disney, pink, and basic,” and argued that she is clearly not a threat, and did not pursue a concealed handgun license with the intention of carrying out any illegal acts.

“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,” Durham said. “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.’”

During a Facebook Live video in response to the incident, Durham reiterated that the officers told her she was being escorted out because she was a safety risk for the building for having a concealed carry permit.” 

She also said she was given a written list of reasons why she was fired, which included her concealed handgun license, a performance requirement she said she corrected, and a complaint that she wore loafers during training.

In a post on Twitter, Durham said she was first called into her boss’s officer two months ago, where she was asked if she “felt safe at home,” because they had learned that there were guns in her home.

While Durham said she does not intend to try to get her job back, she is questioning why the department treated her like a criminal for simply having a concealed handgun license, even though she is a law-abiding citizen.

“I have a concealed carry permit. I own guns. I hunt. I target shoot. I represent women hunters and outdoorswomen,” Durham said. “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? So scary and threatening that I need to be treated like a criminal? To be humiliated and looked down upon for owning a gun? For legally having a gun, registering that gun, and having the appropriate documentation for that gun?”

Durham also claimed on Twitter that she never carried her gun on the job, even though officers told me daily I should be carrying,” given the environment she was working in.

Durham concluded her post by revealing that she is a survivor of sexual assault, and she obtained her concealed handgun license as a means to legally protect herself. By firing her because of the presence of the license—and not the presence of an actual gun, the City of Roanoke is setting a dangerous precedent that could lead to the termination of any employees who have obtained licenses outside of work that the department claims may present a “safety risk.”

“The Constitution of the United States of America. The one document that has followed us for years, and will continue to be the power resource of all we do as Americans. The second amendment: the right to bear arms. The Roanoke City Department of Social Services should be ashamed of themselves. They should be publically known that they did this,” Durham said.

Either she's lying or she's an idiot.

I'll expect a lawsuit and probably a quick settlement in her favor.

She was fired because her "boyfriend" brought a gun to her work and threatened another employee... and this upstanding young lady didn't report it.

It's a nice yella story designed to trigger the sheep tho. You let me down, by triggering so easy or by not investigating first. Within 5 minutes of reading her Facebook page, I saw the posts from her co- workers. You are too smart to let Dickard make you look foolish by biting on ANY article that nitwit would post.

lol

UPDATE: Storm Durham did aFacebook live video, where she gave her backstory, her upbringing, and said that most of the negative comments are from people who she doesn’t know at all—typical of social media. She also addressed the accusation that she and her boyfriend are “psychopaths,” who brought firearms to her former office. It looks like troll bait.

She also detailed more about why she was fired. Besides the "safety risk" regarding her concealed carry permit, she was cited for wearing loafers at training and not closing a predetermined amount of cases in her employee evaluation. She had to close three cases a day, which she did, but was out due to a concussion and broke her leg soon afterwards. She added that she addressed and corrected the citations listed against her, which Durham said were bogus to begin with.

As for the other allegation that she was really was fired because her boyfriend brought a gun to her office, Durham said it's false, adding that he’s only been on the property twice. He helped her carry her bag in when she was on crutches due to her broken leg.

Durham told her supervisors that she was a concealed carry holder when they asked her if there was any domestic violence in her home when they found out she and her boyfriend are gun owners. She suspects they found out through social media; she’s a brand ambassador for hunting and fishing.

This is not a confirmation of her story, just a video providing more details from her side of it. We'll be keeping you updated if this was a gross violation of constitutional rights or if we're being taken for a ride.
