yeah, thats the point I was going to make, she ought to be real darn careful with that pistol. I was robbed once ( long before uber ), tossed into the back of their car. If I had a gun and reached for it I would be dead. they finally let me go. It was a close call.
You'd be dead if you were foolish enough to pull it on someone who was already pointing a gun at you.

They just should have held your grand piano for ransom.
Did I actually type that?

After uber gave away my personal information and I was stalked by a creeper, I felt like the creeper had power over me.. he had the power to make me live in fear, in terror of getting pinged and having him jump in my car.. it was one of the worst feelings in my life being a victim...and ultimately it also made me hasten my departure from uber... (which in hindsight was the best thing that could have happened...now having a job as a casino VIP hostess and having a fixed work schedule, fixed salary, health benefits, safe work envionrment...)

But as I do uber part time now, I decided that I was going to bring a new friend with me on all my rides... I had previous shooting experience as I used to go to the gun range with my dad, but I decided I still needed a re-fresher. I then went shopping and purchased a "friend" that most matched my personality....

Now I refuse to ever let anyone terrorize me or leave me in fear...and most of all I refuse to be a victim....


So without further ado...I introduce my new best friend.... who will be accompanying me on all my rides.....

Creepers beware...
Good for you. Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

My view is that if you feel you need a gun, you really should stop driving for Uber.

I've been on this earth 64 years and never felt the need for a gun you must live in a dangerous area
Good for you and your assumptions betray your bias. Most cops never pull their weapons in their entire careers but that doesn't mean we ban them from carrying them or say they shouldn't have them.

You're putting words into my mouth, I did not mention anything about what police should or should not have as a weapon, and there's a difference between bias and personal preference.

You miss the point.

You assume that anyone who feels the need to carry a gun for protection shouldn't drive Uber and you stated the fact that I carry one means I live in a dangerous area. Why? Because you feel that since nothing bad has happened to you in 64 years that we must be paranoid or live in dangerous areas because we want to carry that protection. With that logic, how would it be any different for cops? The vast majority never have to draw their weapons so they are obviously paranoid to want them, correct?
