Feel free to hail that Uber vehicle for a quick ride across town, but please leave your guns at home.
That’s the latest message from the popular ride sharing startup, which recently updated its legal policy to prohibit the possession of firearms “of any kind in a vehicle” used for its service. The ban is for both drivers and riders, Uber said in the updated legal portion of its website. The change was first noticed by New Republic.
“Any rider or driver found to have violated this prohibition may lose access to the Uber platform,” the startup warned.
Uber isn’t the first, nor is it the last company to deal with the delicate balancing act of weighing in on gun rights. As Fortune has reported in several other cases, restaurants and retail chains in particular often find themselves in the center of the gun rights debate.
