Uber Bans Guns After Driver Uses His To Stop A Mass Shooting

Uber announced that they have banned both drivers and passengers with concealed permits from carrying their weapons with them for self-defense while in Uber vehicles.

Uber announced on June 19th that they have banned both drivers and law-abiding passengers with concealed permits from carrying their weapons with them for self-defense while in Uber vehicles.

The announcement has been released just three months after an Uber driver with a legally registered concealed carry license stopped an attempted mass shooting by pulling his own weapon and shooting a gunman who had began opening fire in Chicago’s Logan Square.

An Uber driver in Chicago witnessed a man begin to open fire on a crowd and took matters into his own hands by shooting the terrorist several times, Video-Uber-Driver-Prevents-Mass-Shootingall in non-fatal areas of the body.


 

On April 20, the Chicago Tribune reported the driver was watching “a group of people” walk in front of his car on North Milwaukee Avenue just before midnight when 22-year-old Everardo Custodio allegedly “began firing into the crowd.” The Uber driver pulled his own gun and “fired six shots at Custodio,” wounding him in “the shin, thigh, and lower back.”

But now, the AP reports that Uber has decided to ban guns “to make sure riders and drivers feel comfortable.” The previous policy had simply been to follow local laws in areas where Uber drivers operate.

Uber says that “drivers or riders who violate the rule may lose access to the platform.”

The company did not comment on the lives saved by the Uber driver who had a gun in Chicago, nor did they explain what unarmed drivers and law-abiding passengers are supposed to do if there is a similar public attack near their Uber drop-off or pick-up.

I think this Uber driver should receive an award after stopping an almost certain blood bath.

Why the hell would Uber ban guns from being carried by law-abiding citizens for protection after this act of heroism?
