WHY WE CARRY: Quick Thinking Uber Driver Stops Robbery Attempt

uberThis Uber driver took the steps to defend his life. And defend it, he did. The likes of Obama and Hillary want us to believe we don’t need guns, they they won’t protect us when the time arises. Tell that to this driver. He will probably disagree.

An armed Uber driver in Florida stopped an armed robbery attack by shooting and killing one of the suspects.

Police officers in Aventura, Florida, are investigating the shooting death of a man who was apparently attempting to rob an Uber driver. The driver shot and killed the would-be robber as he approached his car displaying weapons, WSVN 7News reported.

The Uber driver was cut off by another vehicle carrying two people. The passenger of the car jumped out of the car and allegedly approached the Uber driver’s car displaying two guns. The driver, who has a Florida Concealed Weapons License, pulled his own gun and shot the robbery suspect. The robber fell dead in the street.
