Evolv "Has Never Stated" They "Could Have Made A Difference in Uvalde"

By Donald Maye, Published Jun 03, 2022, 09:54am EDT (Info+)

Evolv has ramped up its school shooter marketing following the mass murder in Uvalde, Texas 10 days ago but Evolv defended its practices, emphasizing to IPVM that they "have never stated that Evolv could have made a difference in Uvalde."

Evolv's marketing tactics, including Evolv's CEO telling investors that they would have found the gun in Uvalde, and Evolv's surging stock price since the mass murder, raises questions about what is appropriate corporate behavior and what can any concealed weapon detection system, Evolv or rival's, do for attacks such as Uvalde.
