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.

On Tuesday morning, a Florida Uber driver who is a trainee policeman shot and killed a man who mistakenly thought his girlfriend was in the back of the Uber and forced the Uber driver to a stop, then approached the Uber driver, shouting, “I’ve got a pistol. Do you want me to shoot you?”’

No Guns in Uber Cars?

From Shotgun News:

Uber has forbidden all its supposed free-agent drivers to carry guns or to pick up anyone with a gun. So Uber gets to tell you how you may protect yourself (prayer, maybe?) and restricts you from carrying a whole class of passengers.

In concealed carry states no one is supposed to know/see that you have a gun so how would this be enforced? Quick answer: it can’t. It won’t be long now before criminals start targeting Uber cars to rob driver and passenger.

Update: I called it.

From Brietbart.com:

On Wednesday, an Uber driver in Queens was robbed by a man who allegedly got in his car, pointed a rifle at him, and demanded his money.
