Will NYFW Be Forced To Relocate? New Yorkers File Suit Against The City For Hogging Park Space!

New Yorkers don't want the Lincoln Center to be used for fashion week anymore!

New Yorkers are PISSED that all the commercial events at the Lincoln Center, specifically the seemingly endless fashion weeks, are keeping them from playing frisbee and using their dogs to meet good-looking strangers at the Center's Damrosch Park!

In fact, residents and environmental activists are so STARK RAVING MAD that they've filed suit against the city and Lincoln Center for "limiting public access to Damrosch Park" and holding commercial events, including fashion week and the Big Apple Circus, for 10 months out of the year.

The plaintiffs also argue that the $32 million generated by the Lincoln Center from all of the events is NOT going back into the city like it's supposed to, but instead benefiting the Center itself.

In a statement, NYC Park Advocates, a nonprofit watchdog group, said:

After the lives of 20 elementary school children were taken by a sick man wielding automated assault weapons, it should be obvious that gun control laws (among a myriad of others) in this country are ineffective at best.

NYC's Mayor Bloomberg appeared on Meet the Press over the weekend and proposed a plan for gun control reform (above).

During his proposal, the Mayor states:

Mayor Bloomberg Speaks On Empire State Building Shooting

Filed under: R.I.P.PolitikSad SadNew York

The shots at the Empire State Building were heard around 9am.

Two people were found dead (including the suspected shooter, 56-year-old Jeffrey Johnson), and there have been at least 8 reported to be wounded.

Six are currently in non-life-threatening condition at Bellevue Hospital.

At 11am, Mayor Bloomberg held a press conference to address the tragedy that just took place in his beloved city.

An avid supporter of gun control, Bloomberg says:

"Earlier this morning, a man who had been fired from his job about a year ago began shooting. He killed one person, at least nine shot. Some may have been accidentally shot by the police.

I ask everyone to keep victims in their thoughts. This is a terrible tragedy, and it would be no doubt more tragic without the heroic acts of the policemen. Every day, the police put their lives on the line to save lives bravely.

NYC is the safest big city in the country, but we are not immune to the national problem of gun violence. This is the beginning of an investigation. Two are dead — the perpetrator and his victim. He does not appear to have a criminal record [at this time]. We're just starting this investigation."

This will no doubt encourage conversations regarding gun control. With this incident and the Dark Knight Massacre happening with so little time in between, we're sure many more will now listen to the stance Bloomberg takes on the issue.

Mayor Bloomberg Urges Obama & Romney To Speak On Gun Control

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikBarack ObamaSad SadPerezTV

After the horrific Dark Knight killings where James Holmes shot 12 dead and injured 59 using a LEGALLY purchased AR-15 assault rifle, Remmington 12-guage shotgun and 2 40-caliber glock handguns, the nation-wide debate on gun control has re-ignited with a ferverence.

NYC Mayor Bloomberg, who is renowned for enforcing strict gun control laws, appeared on CBS' Face The Nation and called upon President Obama and Gov. Romney to publicly provide concrete plans of action in regards to gun control, rather than the generic, vague statements they've recently been issuing.

Check out Bloomberg's commendable request (above).

People may kill people, but it's a hell of a lot harder to kill people - especially a whole bunch of people - without a gun!

Just saying.
