Uber and Lyft prohibiting firearms for drivers, riders

After an Uber driver in Chicago used his gun to stop a mass public shooting and save lives, the company is moving to ban guns in its cars?  Uber has posted the above policy note on its website.
We have adopted a no-firearms policy to ensure that both riders and drivers feel safe and comfortable on the platform. We made this policy change after assessing existing policies and carefully reviewing recent feedback from both riders and driver-partners.
Uber has learned nothing from all these attacks that keep occurring where guns are banned.
With 11.1 million concealed carry permit holders last year, that is a lot of potential customers that Uber and Lyft are turning down.

I guess that would require Uber drivers to post the proper signage banning guns on each vehicle as required by local laws. That will be interesting to see.
