Darwin award- level 10.

Sucks for the Uber driver. I guarantee he didn't want to shoot anybody that night.

Their words: To the extent permitted by applicable law.

Florida Constitution: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and of the lawful authority of the state shall not be infringed, except that the manner of bearing arms may be regulated by law.”

But I'm sure they will ignore that 'applicable law'.....
