Uber Bans Guns for Drivers and Passengers

Ride service company Uber is banning its drivers and passengers from carrying guns.

If anyone breaks the rules, they could lose access to Uber. The company said it changed the policy on June 10th, after reassessing the existing policies and reviewing customer feedback.

It also came after two incidents where Uber drivers fired guns.

In the past, Uber has promised to strengthen background checks on drivers, after reports of rapes, assaults and kidnappings.
