I love this story!
Well, I don’t love that this man was attacked in a robbery.
And it’s unfortunate (I guess?) that one of the victims is now dead.
Maybe some of you will have different feelings about that in the comments below and that is understandable. Let me know!
But what I most certainly love is that the Second Amendment proved, once again, why it is so very important — now more than ever!
An Uber Driver with a license to carry a firearm was reportedly carrying as he worked a shift delivering food, when suddenly he is ambushed by three thugs.
The entire event was caught on camera.
Before you watch….a warning.
This is the real deal.
It could disturb some viewers.

Local Fox29 had more details:
Police say an Uber driver shot and killed and man and badly injured another during an attempted robbery overnight in Mayfair.
Investigators from the Philadelphia Police Department said a group of three armed men approached the driver as he was getting out of his car on the 3200 block of Longshore Avenue just after midnight Saturday.
The driver, who police say is licensed to carry a firearm, shot at least two of the alleged robbers several times and may have injured the third. The men, both in their 20s, were taken by responding officers to Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital where one died.
Investigators were unsure if the third alleged robber who fled from the scene was injured during the shooting.
And here is even more, from Local CBS3:
Police say an Uber driver got out of his car on Longshore Avenue near Sackett Street when three men walked up to him with guns drawn.
They tried to rob him, but police say he pulled out a gun of his own and shot at least two of them.
2 Men Shot, Another On Run After Attempted Robbery In Mayfair, Police Say
One of those men was pronounced dead at 4:59 a.m. at Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital after being shot numerous times in the chest, according to police. The other man, who was shot multiple times throughout his body, is in critical condition, while another male suspect is on the run.
Two firearms have been recovered and an arrest has been made, police say.
“The person who was targeted in this robbery was in possession of a valid permit to carry,” Inspector DF Pace said. “He stayed on location, spoke to police, described what happened, and additionally, there were numerous cameras in the area that we were able to access, which confirmed his version of what happened.”
CBS3 spoke with a neighbor who said the Uber driver was in shock following the incident.
“All he kept saying is, ‘I had to, I had to. I didn’t want to, but I had to,’” Rachael Onimus told Eyewitness News. “You could tell he was really upset about it, but I’m glad he was able to protect his family and protect himself.”
No one should have to defend their life against thugs just because they’re trying to make some extra money being an Uber driver.
How absolutely sad and disgusting!
So glad he is ok!
And so glad we have our Second Amendment!
This is your friendly reminder that the Second Amendment is NOT about bagging a deer….it’s about protection of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!
