Had a friend/co-worker get shot in the head when I was driving a cab. Taxicab Authority in Las Vegas said we can not defend ourselves because if no driver got killed every few years they could not justify their existence.
I always carry multiple weapons of varying severity when I am working. I would bring my AK with me if it would fit under the seat...

If you do have CCW, concealed means no one needs to know.
Didn't say I carry a firearm... Just said I would if my assault rifle would fit under my seat. Uber just says no firearms, that means mace, taser, knife, machete, hand grenade etc... are ok.

I do have a weapon in close proximity. Additionally my vehicle has Onstar and an SOS button. Figured is something goes down ill exit the vehicle as safely as I can and, let the PAX talk over Onstar to Metro, who will already know my location. Hope it never happens
