New York State Wants to Take Guns Away From All Domestic Abusers

  New York State Wants to Take Guns Away From All Domestic Abusers New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday proposed legislation that would take away firearms from anyone convicted of domestic violence. Under New York’s current laws, only domestic abusers convicted of felony or “serious” offenses are prohibited from owning guns. Cuomo said he wanted to close the loophole that allows gun-owners convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors, including some assault and battery charges or strangulation, to retain their firearms. “This year will be remembered as the year of reckoning, when both the tragedy of mass shootings and cultural and institutional harassment of women became impossible to ignore,” the governor, a Democrat, said in a

Gone but never forgotten.

Elton John honored his late mother, Sheila Farebother, while performing at Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, on Tuesday, December 5, according to BBC.

“Yesterday was a sad and hard day for me because my mother passed away,” the Grammy winner, 70, reportedly told the audience. “I’m glad to say she passed away peacefully, with no pain. But maybe sooner than she should have done, so I was quite shocked. And I was thinking how I could pay tribute to her tonight and what song I should choose.”

A 'Lasting Tribute': Prince William & Prince Harry Announce Sculptor for Princess Diana's Statue

  A 'Lasting Tribute': Prince William & Prince Harry Announce Sculptor for Princess Diana's Statue Prince William and Prince Harry are ending a poignant year in which they have led the public memorials to their late mother Princess Diana by announcing that a sculptor and design have been chosen to create a commemorative statue of her. They have comissioned Ian Rank-Broadley, the sculptor behind the effigy of Queen Elizabeth that has been used to decorate all British coins since 1998. Prince Harry, 33, and Prince William, 35 — who have spent much of the year talking about and commemorating Diana — used the latest news to express their gratitude over the touching reaction to the 20th anniversary of their mother’s death this past summer. “We have been touched by the kind words and memories so many people have shared about our mother over these past few months. It is clear the significance of her work is still felt by many in the U.K. and across the world, even 20 years after her death,” the princes said in a joint statement released to PEOPLE. The statement continued, “Ian is an extremely gifted sculptor and we know that he will create a fitting and lasting tribute to our mother. We look forward to unveiling the statue, which will allow all those who visit Kensington Palace to remember and celebrate her life and legacy.” Rank-Broadley’s statue will be created in the coming months and situated in the public grounds of Kensington Palace, just yards from the home where Diana lived until her death following a car crash in Paris in August 1997.

Touching tribute : Three days after his mother Anne Meara's death, Ben Stiller took to social media on Tuesday to pay tribute to the 'extraordinary' woman Mark Foster emerges for first time since coming out at Elton John AIDS Foundation gala alongside trailblazing gay sportsman who inspired him.

"He was boundary-changing and he danced to his own tune," says Elton . Elton John dedicated a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ to the late singer at a concert in Los Angeles this week.

As previously reported, Farebrother died on Monday, December 4, months after she and John reportedly reconnected after being estranged for years. “So sad to say that my mother passed away. I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock,” the “Candle in the Wind” crooner tweeted at the time alongside a photo of the pair. “Travel safe Mum. Thank you for everything. I will miss you so much. Love, Elton.” 

According to The Telegraph, the singer and Farebrother stopped speaking after he asked her to cut relations with two of their friends.John revealed in May that he and Farebrother had reconciled after not speaking since June 2008. He honored her on Mother’s Day by sharing a sweet photo of the two on social media and writing, “Dear Mum, Happy Mother’s Day! So happy we are back in touch. Love, Elton xo.”

Farebrother’s cause of death has not yet been revealed.
