UBER FIREARMS PROHIBITION POLICY We seek to ensure that everyone using the Uber digital platform—both driver-partners and riders—feels safe and comfortable using the service. During a ride arranged through the Uber platform, Uber and its affiliates therefore prohibit possessing firearms of any kind in a vehicle. Any rider or driver found to have violated this prohibition may lose access to the Uber platform.

And remember, Uber drivers are independent contractors, something happens and you cannot sue Uber HQ. Like the old carny saying: You pays your money and you take your chances.

That sounds like an untapped market waiting to happen.
If the Liberal lawmakers weren’t already trying to strangle Uber through legislation, anyway.
I am rethinking my use of it. I pray my driver is armed. It could save my life. As for policies against me being armed, I say FU Uber. I will not comply.
“A driver for Uber is an employee, not a contractor, according to a California ruling that eventually could push up costs for the smartphone-based ride hailing service and hurt the closely watched start-up’s valuation.”
“It’s important to remember that the number one reason drivers choose to use Uber is because they have complete flexibility and control,” the company said in a statement. “The majority of them can and do choose to earn their living from multiple sources, including other ride sharing companies.”
CA’s ruling that the drivers are employees tenuous at the least, in my opinion. But hey, it’s California.
Wasn’t there an incident in Chicago where an ARMED Uber Driver took out a gunman that was shooting into a crowd?
I think the driver was a PI supplementing his income?
If I remember correctly, Domino’s dropped their 30 minute guarantee when a driver successfully sued the company after an accident while trying to comply with the mandated time limit. If an Uber driver is injured while compiling with this no weapons policy, would he not have a similar argument that the company’s mandate put him in jeopardy, since it removes his choice to be armed or not.
Uber just made their drivers sitting ducks. The Charleston gun free church that made its parishioners into sitting ducks, and countless other gun-free zone shootings apparently don’t count for a company that wants to make its drivers and clients “FEEL” safe. Well, it’s their company, and they are free to decide what policies they enforce. It’s my life and I will not be using them.
