Someone may want to remind Uber that they’re not the only ride in town.
Accepting the left’s gun control narrative, the ride-sharing company changed its app Friday evening to have riders “reflect on gun violence” while awaiting transportation.
Instead of the usual countdown message showing how many minutes away a driver is, the app instead showed a “minute to reflect on gun violence.”

If Uber’s not careful with its political foray, riders may opt to look for a Lyft instead… either way, social media users were not impressed.
