HARRISBURG, September 24, 2018 — State Senator Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia/Montgomery) and Rep. Carolyn Comitta (D-Chester) will hold a rally at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25 to remember Bianca Nikol Roberson, in which they will call for a ban on loaded firearms in vehicles.

Roberson was fatally shot during a road rage incident June 28, 2017. Her killer had a loaded gun sitting next to him before he picked up the weapon and fired on the 18-year-old woman as she drove home from a shopping trip. Michelle Roberson, Bianca’s mother, has advocated on behalf of banning loaded firearms in vehicles. Roberson says her daughter would still be alive if a reasonable ban had been in place, prohibiting her daughter’s killer from having a loaded gun so readily accessible.

Both Hughes and Comitta have proposed legislation in their respective chambers.
