Uber Bans Guns

I guess I won’t be using Uber, after all.

Uber’s new policy would prohibit passengers and drivers from having guns inside its vehicles.

The company’s rule states that violators risk losing access to Uber services.

    Good! Finally, some rational thought.

    Uber has the right to disallow guns in its business.

    Gun owners also have the right not to use Uber for that reason.

    I will not be using Uber either because of this policy.

    Uber’s policy is contrary to Wisconsin law.

    Wi statute 175.60(15m)(b):
    An employer may not prohibit a licensee or an out-of-state licensee, as a condition of employment, from carrying a concealed weapon, a particular type of concealed weapon, or ammunition or from storing a weapon, a particular type of weapon, or ammunition in the licensee’s or out-of-state licensee’s own motor vehicle, regardless of whether the motor vehicle is used in the course of employment or whether the motor vehicle is driven or parked on property used by the employer.

    So then, before you are cleared to enter an Uber car you’ll have to be groped by some perv in a blue shirt?
