A new ride-sharing platform has launched in the United States, allowing drivers to carry firearms while transporting strangers from point A to point B.

Black Wolf, an app aimed at competing with Uber and Lyft, recently launched in Atlanta and is set to launch in New York.

Kerry King Brown, the app’s creator, said that he built the software as a “necessary evil.”

“Who is mostly in the news being robbed or raped?” Brown told Atlanta News First, “the average person.”

“What I am working on is a necessary evil.” It is a requirement.”

Brown is not your typical driver. And he is no ordinary man with a plan.

He has served as a bodyguard for celebrities and politicians and as a private investigator.

He now wants to share his own brand of ‘executive protection’ with the rest of the world.

“I am catering to people who value this and want to take their life seriously,” he stated.

His new ride-sharing software allows consumers to order an armed driver and choose between armored and non-armored transportation alternatives.

All drivers are legally equipped, have experience in the military, law enforcement, or private security, and are educated in disaster de-escalation strategies.

Furthermore, every Black Wolf App vehicle includes GPS monitoring and live-streaming technology, allowing riders to share with their loved ones while keeping both their passengers and drivers safe.

The service has been available in Atlanta since 2021, but they just created an app and will soon expand to New York.

According to Forbes, the app has gone viral, with over 79,000 downloads in just over a week.

In Atlanta, an armed driver costs USD$60 (AUD$90.18, £48.25), an unarmed driver costs USD$50 (AUD$75.16, £40.22), and you pay roughly USD$1.75 (AUD$2.63, £1.41) each mile on top of that.

Jackelyn Eckles, a Black Wolf user, claimed she would gladly pay to have her armed driver bring her home safely.

“I believe that everyone has the right to feel safe,” she told Atlanta News First.

“I just feel like there have been too many incidents across multiple platforms.”

Users in the United States can get the software for free on Apple’s software Store and Google Play.

It provides three types of executive protection: armed executive protection, unarmed executive protection, and school executive protection.

The latter is touted as a way to send children to school in the safest possible manner, as gun violence continues to plague the US education system.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 234 mass shootings in the United States this year.

There have been 141 days in 2023 as of this writing.

The number of children killed in mass shootings – that is, children aged newborn to 11 – is currently at 102.

In addition, 242 minors were hurt in the attacks.

In 2023, a total of 592 teenagers (ages 12 to 17) were killed in mass shootings.

In 2023, 1,476 more teenagers were harmed as a result of widespread gun violence.
