While it’s possible to get a concealed carry permit in the heavily gun-controlled District, it’s not easy. Besides, Uber prohibits its drivers from carrying firearms to protect themselves, no matter how dangerous the areas in which they operate may be.
This incident clearly falls under the category of it should have been a defensive gun use.
A GoFundMe account has been set up for Mr. Anwar’s family.
Mohammad Anwar was a hard-working Pakistani immigrant who came to the United States to create a better life for him and his family. He was simply at work yesterday evening, providing for his family, when his life was tragically taken in an appalling act of violence. The details are still being investigated, however we know that Anwar was working on an UberEats delivery when two assailants attempted to carjack him in Navy Yard.
