And, The Troy Record also has news on the tip line on their Facebook page It is real. There is actually someone there to take your tips So that state officials can come take your guns.
NY State has established a toll-free tip line 1-855-GUNSNYS (1-855- 486-7697) to encourage residents to report illegal firearm possession. The tip line also allows for information to be submitted via text individuals can text GUNTIP and their message to CRIMES (274637). The New York State Police staff the tip line 24 hours a day. Upon receiving a call, troopers will solicit as much information as possible regarding a firearm tip then contact the appropriate police agency with the lead to initiate an investigation. If the information leads to an arrest for the illegal possession of a firearm, the tipster will be awarded $500.
This is like something youd read about in China or Cuba, not America.
We need a crooked politician snitch line.
Those guns aren’t illegal. They’re ‘undocumented’.
Time to start reporting every Democrat you know New Yorkers. And you can’t be sure there isn’t a “high cap mag” without a cavity search.
Hey, what could possibly go wrong?
The state of New York decides to go the route of the Gestapo and the Hitler Youth, encouraging everyone to rat out their neighbors.
Don’t mess with the boy next door when he decides it’ll be fun to p*ss on your garden or ring the doorbell and run, or you may find yourself dealing with a house full of SWAT team, Navy SEAL wannabe’s.
Maybe this will help get people off their arses in NY and start fixing their mess. Might take a few arrests before they understand how Nazi this all is, but they elected the problem, so my pity dispenser is somewhat broken..
Using your tax money to pay off rats so they can rob you of you right to keep and bear arms. The gov’t is nothing but organized crime.
Someone better report Cuomo and his mafia buddies. I am sure they are all packing over the 7 round limit.
We let the 2nd Amendment protection die without firing a shot. Thomas Jefferson would be ashamed of us and he would be right.
The early years of the nazis is actually the most interesting and scary chapter rather than the later war years. In the early and mid thirties, regular germans noticed their neighbors going “missing” and a quiet terror swept over the populace to just go along with the madness or be one of those never to be heard from again.
NY Patriots, time to turn the tide of your facist state. Start reporting every liberal you know, whether they are guilty or not to overwhelm their system. The Cloward-Piven strategy turned around on them.
Snitches get stitches.
Why not just call up and keep them busy with random, useless reports?
They can’t judge one’s intent. They want citizen busy-bodies? Give them citizen busy-bodies!
Call in the local hippie with his subaru clunker covered with bumper stickers. Call in the guy with the Obama sign on his lawn. Fun for all!
Psssst- the relatives of the “representatives” that voted for this law all have big ugly black guns with huge “clips.” Pass it on.
just say they are ‘dreamers’.
Call the tip line for every cop you see. The “law” did not exempt them.
Who says you can’t call from an isolated pay phone in Bugtussle, Tennessee to report people?
I wonder if that sniveling little turd who ratted out that family in NJ who posted the pic of the boy with the rifle was hoping to cash in on some kind of a snitch-for-cash a payoff.
The left is itching for trouble because they are pushing the envelope on our freedoms each and every day. it is no wonder real patriotic Americans leave Obama zombie states in droves every year.
Gun manufacture Magpul is leaving Colorado after they signed into law the gun control bill in the state because that was the final straw.
“Why not just call up and keep them busy with random, useless reports?”
Because they log the number you called from. Not a lot of payphones left, yano.
How about calling tip in for the armed guards at the state capitol in Albany?
This will not work out well. Go figure.
Post of the day! How many Gladys Kravitz like people are we going to find! heh
Just be sure to do this from a ‘borrowed’ phone - or otherwise untraceable to you.
Turn in your neighbors and your friends
They’ll thank you for it in the end
And while they’re busy doing time
We’ll wash out their brains and cleanup their minds
NY nannystate ping
Nacht und Nebel.
I’d be a little nervous going out on one of these little excursions, if I was a cop. Who knows...could be a preplanned welcoming party of superior force waiting for them.
I'm just a concerned citizen watching out for suspicious behavior on behalf of our Govt, sir. I will call to help whenever I can.
OR - give that number when filling out telemarketing forms.
There’s a lot of payback waiting to be brought down on busybody neighbors or just plain obnoxious ones. A roving freelancer with a bag full of WalMart specials could wreak some real havoc. See an Obama sticker in the driveway, call the snitch line, disable the phone, repeat.
Enormous civil disobedience potential here, IMO.
Use the phones at libraries, police stations, hotels, motels, gas stations, etc. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
SCUM, Cuomo is a SCUM THUG!
I've heard it suggested that the modern version of tar and feathers would be good -- gorilla glue and packing peanuts.
Just be aware the phones at those locations most likely will under video surveillance. Just saying.
Be real careful with that advice. Most of those places have hi-res security cams in place.
My recommendation, Pre-paid drop phones...
In my area you can still find pay phones if you know where to look. Check gas stations, malls, strip malls, supermarkets, etc.
They now have a Gestapo in addition to a Hitler ya think? Next, Brown Shirts to go with their Death Panels and Hospice Centers/Camps.
History is repeating itself for those too devoid of gray matter to remember it.
You are so right! And so it begins. What next free skittles for kids who turn in their parents?
Thanks mm. How many innocent people will be turned in by a money grubby low life? Unreal!
I can only imagine.
I used to live in Fulton.
“What next free skittles for kids who turn in their parents?”
Nah, green onions and raw broccoli. Michelle, er, Michael Bloomberg mandates healthy foods for the little tykes.
The democrats are ruining America - a little more, every single day.
My goodness. My hometown. Ha!
