Hmm... Was it clearly visible?
Uber Firearms Prohibition Policy
Our goal is to ensure that everyone has a safe and reliable ride. That's why Uber prohibits riders and drivers from carrying firearms of any kind in a vehicle while using our app.*
Anyone who violates this policy may lose access to Uber.
* To the extent permitted by applicable law.
I am very pro-gun/military/law. I drove a cop yesterday, she jumped out of her squad car and into mine.
You drive a squad car?
I had to!
When Camry says pull over, you pull over. It doesn't take no for an answer.
If it's a police officer I would happily trasport them gun or no gun.
I'll give a cop a ride.
They have given me rides before . . . .
Screw Uber's policy. It's my car, I'll do what I want.
I'm Canadian so we don't have concealed weapons here but....
If an armed and uniformed peace officer needs a ride, no problem (although I can't think of any scenario where an on-duty officer would need to use an Uber).
If a PAX is lawfully traveling with their firearm and it is locked in a case and stored in my trunk, no problem.
I'm a retired police officer, so yeah, I would transport an off-duty cop who was carrying -- provided he/she wasn't drunk.
If they've been drinking, nope, no way -- and I would not hesitate to tell them why. Drunks and guns do not play well together; drunk cops are not an exception to that rule.
I don't really think an officer in uniform would be taking a ride!
So would I but Canadian police officers that are not on duty cannot carry so I'll never encounter that.
Agreed. It seems pretty unlikely.
On the other hand, I would certainly not fault any Uber driver who refused to drive a cop with a gun.
First of all, as noted above, it is against Uber's policy for anyone using the app to be armed. And second, there is the unofficial my car, my rules attitude. Either one is adequate justification to refuse a ride, IMHO.
But different jurisdictions, different rules. In my alma mater, we were required to carry a firearm, badge and ID off duty -- unless it was "clearly inappropriate," like taking your family to the beach. Nobody always, always did -- but that was the reg.
Lol. Cops are crazy. I'll transport a drunk cop with a gun. There's one club in New Orleans where a lot of ATF & DEA,FBI used to party.
Sometimes they talk too much when they drink.
The craziest ones are the young jump squad task force guys. They get pumped. Kicking down doors with no idea what's on the other side . . .
I'll also carry drunk bikers with guns.
Both have a chain of command to answer to.
I would not do it on Pool ride if we had Pool in my area. No mixing.
"Gun safe" policies are counter productive. Ever notice that mass shootings ALWAYS take place in gun free zones?
A sign won't affect a bad guy.
The good guys don't worry me.
Good for you. I would never provide a ride for someone I knew to be a criminal with a gun. I've been harassed by way too many cops, seen way too many real videos that the MSM hides.
Cops are not your friends. They are dangerous lunatics.
I would like to add that I'm always respectful to cops & have never given them reason to bother me. In my real job, I have to work closely with them as part of my job.
Legal Studies guy here, you could actually be sued for refusing a Police Officer a ride. It's Illegal to Discriminate.
If the pax is a policeman I will kindly ask him to see his badge before entering the car. I will explain that the scent of marijuana is simply from a prior passenger and the mints are truly mints. But high in sugar, don't try them. And also don't drink the water.
He can use the aux cord.
Refused to take service dogs for a while and been fine. LEO not welcome if they have a firearm...
