New York State Offering $500 to People Who Snitch on Gun Owners
Mental Recession ^ | 03/20/2013

Posted on 03/20/2013 1:38:25 PM PDT by rustyweiss74

WRGB in Albany has a breaking news story posted to their Facebook page, claiming that the state of New York is offering up bribes for people to rat out those possessing illegal firearms – an interesting development considering the adoption of the new anti-Second Amendment SAFE Act legislation. In other words, a firearm that may have been obtained legally could become illegal under the SAFE Act, and anybody who knows you possess said firearm can report you and earn themselves a cool $500.

In addition to the Facebook page, Pat Bailey, a reporter from at CBS 6 in Albany, tweeted that he has a letter from the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services explaining the reward program.

Impeach 'em. Try 'em. Hang 'em.

If one is an elected official, uphold the oath, or pay the price of treason.

Yes, but when you turn in your neighbor, or better yet, a family member, you will get a frameble, multi-colored certificate from the local GESTHIMASTATSPOLIZI office, in addition to your 500 marks.
(I can pronounce it in German, but can’t spell it.)
Question: Is the reward doubled if you turn in a parent?

The one thing that stood out in Gulag Archipelago was how the Communists turned everyone into spies. No one could trust anyone, which meant it was impossible to have a successful rebellion.

I would at the very least shun any person who snitched on a fellow American. In all probability, I would shun their husband/wife/kids also. Any interactions we had would be only because I was forced by law into interacting with them or because I could ruin their lives at least as much as they ruined a decent person’s life. I do have money though, so I might sick a PI on any snitch and see what that might lead to.

If it were only about illegal guns, ok, but it won’t be. It will be nosy neighbors ratting on normal, law-abiding people who have guns legally. They will be harassed by the police.

VERY few illegal guns will be reported. And the libs will be happy cuz they want to take guns from innocent people and leave them in the hands of criminals.

Suddenly the libs care about illegals?

Maybe there’s an opportunity here. There are some enterprising souls who build zip guns just to sell them at buybacks. If these zip guns are illegal in New York, then you can build some and plant them on the property of various statists, reporters and leftwing libtards & make money off the whole deal.

“If it were only about illegal guns, ok, but it won’t be. It will be nosy neighbors ratting on normal, law-abiding people who have guns legally. They will be harassed by the police.”

I’m not sure there is any such thing as a illegitimately illegal gun.

In any-case perhaps we should support and encourage the massive New York Resistance movement:

http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/14322-gun-owners-refuse-to-register-under-new-york-law

Along with similar movements by patriot in all other similar states. “Civil disobedience” is the new praze of the day for the few remaining patriots of New York.

Were I a New Yorker I’d buy a gun just to stand up to this tyranny.

Well in a way it might get illegal (stolen) guns off the streets when rival gang members out each other. Should be fun to watch.

Yes, I think you do get a double fee if you rat out your parent.

1.5 multiplier for a brother or sister and 1.25 for a first cousin.

You get the bonus of choosing which family member gets shot in the head when it come to that point.

I bet the public schools are already teaching that there never were any such thing as Nazis. It’s just a fiction made up by evil patriot Americans.

Perhaps a sign in their yard, or better a sign in their neighbor’s yard that reads “This person ratted on an honest citizen. By the way criminals, this person doesn’t believe that non-criminals should own a gun and will do anything for money”

A nation spying on each other. The Scriptures clearly tell us in the last days that brother against brother, children against parents, friend against friend. This is what the Bible is alluding too. That we will spy on each other for gain. The End Times are here. The Last Days are upon us. Daniel, Ezekiel, Matthew, etc. clearly lay out these days and what is happening. You don’t need to listen to the news to find out after the fact. The Bible is telling you before hand what is happening and going to happen. The days run short. Don’t be one of those standing here saying, “where’d everybody go!!”

Well, no, there WERE Nazis, but they were the Republicans of their era. I was talking to some guy the other day and he was talking, half jokingly, about how all conservatives are Nazis, trying to get my goat. I asked him, "So it's your position that if the Nazional Socialistische Arbeitpartei (National Socislist Workers' Party) were around today, they'd be Republicans?" He didn't say anything.

Sure he made his mistakes, but Benito Mussolini stabilized the Lira, drove down unemployment, improved the Italian infrastructure, united the Italian people (at least until that unfortunate "Pact of Steal" thing) and made the trains run on time.

Compared to that, what has Cuomo ever really done for the people of New York?

This isn’t even remotely compatible with living in a free society. How many peoples’ homes are going to be violated by law enforcement because of a tip by some cash-greedy citizen or disenfranchised ex-friend or ex-lover? I realize these questions are merely rhetorical, knowing full well that those who enacted this policy are aware of these consequences, but just don’t care. This is all about power and fulfilling some sense of revenge over a demographic of the population that these liberals don’t like.

Select a commie politician. Plant a 30 rd. AR mag in their car, house etc. Get a burner phone and turn them in using a false name and address. The authorities will tear their property to pieces looking for the AR and they will still have felony evidence even if they find nothing else.
