    Two words.
    Legal liability. Same reason I'm sure the vast majority of businesses go out of their way to forbid guns in their stores. The beliefs of the owners/management notwithstanding, they don't want to get stuck with a lawsuit. Lawsuits put companies out of business. I'm sure their concern for potential customer/employee/occupant/etc safety factors in there but honestly, the bottom line is the bottom line.

    Not defending it, just saying...

    Legal Liability is right...when you remove the ability for someone to defend themselves it should be 100% on the business to provide said protective or face culpability...My two cents.

    Uber is still going strong and has gone on to infiltrate 58 countries. It's chauffeurs double every 6 months. Recently, I read an article by collegeusatoday which recommends tips like verifying the identity of the driver before getting in, wait in a safe area for the app notification than venture into darker unsafe area, keep in touch with the family, check for the driver's rating on the app.
    I'm still not sure if it is safe to use Uber for female riding solo. But I don't think even a taxi rank better when it comes to safety. Another article on why one should be talking about taxi or uber safety tips (10 Reasons You Should Be Talking About Taxi/Uber Driver Safety Tips | ProTELEC CheckMate).

    This is obviously fake news, it's illegal to use a gun while robbing someone.
