Let me guess, all the schools now have these cutesy little posters of Brown shirted kids proudly involved with removing guns for the fatherland, plus they can make easy money ratting out the parents who refuse to let them run wild.

If they changed it from “illegal gun owners” to “illegal aliens,” then it would have my support!

Time to use their own tactics against them by overwhelming the system with calls to report on the government class. Tip: use a burn phone.

I think it would be fun to report Hizzoner himself, his aides, family, friends, etc. and then watch the fun of the no-knock weapons searches in the middle of the night.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahahahahahahahaha! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Amen!

But if they ever do get a gun ban in effect will that mean we are all illegal gun owners? Ya gotta think like the puppet masters and stay a few steps ahead of the game nowadays. Incrementalism is one of their staples.

With a certain class of Italian you also get a strong whiff of fascism ~ the Cuomo family has it in spades.

BTW, his own firearms are probably possessed in violation of this law ~ TURN HIM IN!

Report them ~ there’s no reason they can’t be reported and odds are good that all of those people you named are currently in violation of New York’s gun laws.

Silly wabbit....they’re not interested in gang-bangers!

Once a gun is “reported” as “illegal”, it is confiscated, and you can spend the next 3 years trying to prove otherwise.

RE :”New York offers $500 reward for reporting illegal gun owners “

Turn in your neighbors for $500.

Dems path to fairness is to turn lawbiding constitution believing citizens into common criminals.

Now are seen as the same as the drug pusher selling crack to kids now if you live in NYS, a threat to society.

People should do it. Start with the legislators who voted for this mess. Then dime out the campaign contributors to these hacks.

If enough people did this (from payphones, burners or IP phones that are hard to trace), the “rat out your neighbor” program will die a rapid, quiet death.

And the political class will realize that gun owners aren’t going to get on the train quietly...

That’s called ‘stooping to their level’ and it’s illegal.

Same thing that happened to that family in NJ who posted on Facebook.

It’s nice to know that New York States financial condiion is so good that they can afford to piss away taxpayers money by rewarding pimps who report a neighbor for an illegal gun.

Heh.

Here's the details - I may just call them myself... except the Texas area code on the caller ID would "tip" them off.

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 StatePolice 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.

I know but, IMO we need to take the high road here.

Wonder if the Feds will attempt to find the posters who tipped off the ATF and CPS or do they encourage such? In NY, apparently they do.

>>> New York offers $500 reward for reporting illegal gun owners

Interested minds alike want to know what New York Cuomo want to do about it (the info on illegal gun owners).

If I were a New Yorker, I would demand Cuomo spit out his plan before allowing him give out 'rewards'.

Talk about a field day for anyone with a microphone in front of their face.

I’d come up with “official reports” of rewards being paid for turning in anyone that was a Jew, Black, illegal, homo, Christian, Muslim, you name it.

I would flood the airwaves with the “official” reports.

So here we are in a mud pit fighting animals who don’t obey laws and you want us to abide by the Marquis de Queensbury rules.

You’re quite a piece of work, new guy.

I’d much rather see a reward for citizens who report Cuomo’s mafia and communist party connections.

They are doing more damage to society than any gun owned by a responsible citizen.

“.... block your number...”

You can’t block your number if you’re calling a toll-free number. The owner of the toll-free number can opt to receive the caller ID info with the call. Not all TF owners choose to get that info (extra cost), but many do.

Cuomo will.

RE:”But don’t you DARE turn in an illegal alien!”

Its now ‘recent immigrant’

or ‘natural conseravtive’

They find being called ‘illegal’ offensive.

Somebody could make a pretty penny with this. Here’s how.

First, get a list of felon, ex-gun offenders. If they had a gun before, they likely have one now. Probably tens of thousands of them.

Then phone them in. When the police search them, and find their illegal gun, you get the money. Figure maybe three in five have a gun they plan to use to commit more crime.
