South Florida Uber Driver Sues to Carry Gun on the Job

•, Brittany Shammas

Mejia, who's also a local driver, couldn't believe it when the man's job was called into question instead, thanks to an Uber policy barring firearms.

After watching the story unfold, Mejia, who has a concealed carry permit and calls himself a proud Second Amendment supporter, decided the policy had to go. Now he's suing Uber in a case that could have far-reaching implications, arguing that drivers should be allowed to carry firearms for protection.

"It's very unfortunate when you have a huge corporation like this making money on the backs of others, and then, on top of that, they allow these individuals to be in precarious situations," the 28-year-old driver says.
