Everytown activist, Brenda Moss, came after Door Dash on Twitter after a delivery driver showed up carrying. Now, how she knew if the gun was loaded, we’re not sure but it apparently freaked her out that someone would legally carry a firearm when delivering food to strangers.
Must be nice to live in such a cute little bubble not to know how dangerous that job really is.
@Doordash I didn't know carrying a loaded gun and a magazine was a requirement to deliver food. Yes! Your driver showed up at my door just like that. I am a survivor of gun violence. Is this your policy? #foreverShawn @JoshuaCole @MomsDemand @Everytown

Luckily, Cam Edwards was good enough to explain it to her.
And he didn’t even have to break out the puppets and crayons.

I'm truly sorry for your incredible loss but violent criminals prey on delivery drivers. This is a person legally carrying to protect themselves. None of us want more victims but disarming the law abiding is not the answer

Maybe that’s how the driver got to be a survivor of gun violence. Carrying a gun isn’t the same as brandishing one. Hope that driver blocks you from now on and you quit harassing delivery folks until you get the mental help you need.

Do you realize a lot of these drivers are women, not just men, and they go into all kinds of areas to deliver ? The place my kid works for, their drivers carry openly and I applaud them for it. You do know you can request they just leave your delivery on the porch? Twit.

Maybe he wants to survive gun violence as well?
Do you wish to leave them as disarmed victims?

Yes! Anyone and everyone who can legally possess a firearm should carry a firearm! An armed society is a polite society!

Nice to know you value your kale smoothie more than your driver's life.

Yeah, why should people be able defend themselves?! How terrible! 🙄

Someone legally carrying does not equal gun violence, and see, that is the biggest problem with their messaging. When EVERYTHING is gun violence then nothing is, you know? It’s hard to truly tackle gun violence when you see it everywhere …
Maybe she’ll learn a thing or two from Cam?
