    Bad idea all around. If he is a police officer, you are antagonizing a police officer. If he is not a police officer, you are antagonizing an armed person.

    Cops are people too, some nice, some not. Whatever the case, you pick up ahole pax some times right? So why would you not pick up cops? As far as the gun is concerned, they are licensed and trained to carry so what's the problem? I have way too many other things to think about to make this a problem. I pick them up, get them safely and comfortably to their destination and drop them off, I really don't care who them is.

    Constitution applies to government entities, not private sector

    Sure it will, can you name one single incident where there has been a shooting in a gun free zone, or cite any where that more gun control has led to higher crime, or cite a dictatorship that was pro gun control?

    You are right with regard to the 2nd Amendment -- it is a constraint on governmental bodies infringing on the rights of citizens. Most of the Bill of Rights is like that -- protecting the rights of citizens against the powerful central government created by the Constitution.

    But that is not true of the entire constitution. Many parts of the constitution have been widely applied beyond governmental activities to virtually every aspect of American life, using the "intrastate commerce clause" and other approaches.

    If they're concealed, then you wouldn't know.

    And you're a ******ed troll.
    I'm a driver and I drive with my pistol, OC spray, and a torch. Oh god Uber might find, and what deactivate me! You know, you likely have already taken passengers that had a concealed weapons permit and their firearm with them in getting in your car. Most people who carry a firearm for defensive purposes do not open carry.

    You sound like one of those that talk trash about law enforcement all day long until you get robbed, hurt, or burglarized and then you're crying to 911 to send the police.

    UBER has no legal authority to say I can't carry a weapon on me, or in my vehicle if I'm working for them. They can choose to end their partnership with me for doing that but I will never suffer legal consequences from them. Now if they have a sign posted in their office stating no firearms, this is a different scenario and legally I can't proceed on to their property, regardless if I have my concealed permit.

    Isn't LA crazy as hell regarding concealed or vehicle carry? I thought it was very difficult to legally carry in almost all of CA

    Uber's policy, while unenforceable where carry is legal and the driver or pax is following the law (open carry or permit, etc). What that means as a driver is if a pax complains and they deactivate you, you'll have to fight them, probably in court under the silly arbitration clause, to get reinstated. And then try to collect for missed work (if you do this full time). Going to be an uphill battle.

    That being said, there's usually a firearm in my car or on my person when I drive that is compliant with Iowa & Illinois law. Last I checked Uber didn't do background checks on pax and I've driven some shady people into some shady neighborhoods (damn Uber hiding destination until pax is already in car - less confrontational to take the trip than try to kick someone out in most cases)...

    Not true, Or else your Bill of Rights would not apply to you by your logic.
