A Virginia mother who promised to bring everyone one of her guns loaded and ready to be fired if a school board decided to pass a mask mandate was arrested and charged over the weekend.
According to WHSV, Ameila King made the threat during a Thursday school board meeting. The board was debating on instituting a mask mandate for students as COVID cases rise or follow Governor Glenn Youngkin’s Executive Order that masks be a choice for students.
During the public comment period, King said, “No mask mandates. My child, my children will not come to school on Monday with a mask on. Alright? That’s not happening. And I will bring every single gun loaded and ready.”
The local police department contacted state and national law enforcement agencies for advice on how to proceed with the threat. The Department ultimately decided to charge her with a misdemeanor, feeling that was appropriate.
The school board decided to honor the Governor’s Executive Order and allow mask-wearing to be a choice by the parents or guardians.
King was released on a $5,000 bond and faces a later court date.
