Ride Share Companies’ Policies Making Drivers Targets Of Crime

From Bearing Arms:

That’s somewhat of an evergreen headline, since this isn’t exactly a new phenomenon, nor are the company’s policies requiring their drivers to be disarmed while on the clock. Violate that policy and you’ll be fired, even if you used your gun in self-defense.

Rideshare Divers Targeted Because They Are Unarmed

From Bearing Arms:

We’ve been covering the rise in carjackings and other violent crimes committed against Uber and Lyft drivers for some time now, including the story of Cynthia Norman, a Cleveland woman and driver for Lyft who was cut loose by the company because she dared to defend herself against a pair of attackers with her legally owned and lawfully carried firearm.

Both Uber and Lyft have policies that require drivers be unarmed, and most of the folks contracting to drive for the companies abide by those restrictions (though clearly not all of them do). Still, violent criminals don’t seem to care that they’re not supposed to bring a gun along for their ride as well. One of the latest attacks on a rideshare driver took place just a few days ago in Gilbert, Arizona.

Georgia Bill Would Allow Armed Uber/Lyft Drivers

From Bearing Arms:

It’s an issue that shouldn’t be an issue, truth be told. No company should bar their employees from carrying a firearm if it’s legal for them to do so, yet plenty of them do.
Ridesharing, however, is particularly egregious because you’re using your property for work purposes.
