HOW Confiscation occurs: Cuomo set up $500 Reward & 1-800 Snitch HotLine vs GunOwners...1yr ago!

If, and/or when, these type of programs were to spread like virus, nationwide & become generally accepted like TSA, DUI roadblocks, etc., it'd simply complete the final nail in the coffin vs. the American Constitutional Republic, by turning us into a snitch culture, a veritable Nazi/Stasi/Stalinist 'watch what you say/show/do, to whom you show/say it to'-neighbor vs. neighbor police state:

New York state offers $500 reward for reporting gun owners

For more than a year, New York state has maintained a tip line allowing people to report illegal gun owners and collect a $500 reward.

CBS-6 news reported the existence of the tip line on Wednesday. It was previously a “well-kept secret” that received little promotion from state officials or fanfare in the media, according to the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.

A February 2012 press release from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office first publicly announced the tip line, saying it was designed to “encourage citizens to report illegal firearm possession.”

Cuomo Puts $500 Bounty On Gun Owners

Posted on March 20, 2013 by Stranger

Albany’s WRGB reports New York has set up a website where a tipster can get a $500 reward for turning in gun owners.

Essentially, a snitch can call 1-855-GUNSNYS, 1.855.486.7697, a line manned 24/7/365 by the New York State Police to report a gun owner. Snitches can also text GUNTIP and their message to CRIMES (274637). Troopers will solicit as much information as possible, then relay information to the appropriate police agency to begin an investigation. If the information leads to an illegal possession of a firearm arrest the “tipster” will be awarded $500.

And given the fear and loathing the law abiding gun owner have been subjected to by New York Democrats like Cuomo, you can bet there will be thousands of tips. And some of them will actually lead to prosecutions. But for the most part, these investigations will be very little more than persecutions as vindictive neighbors turn in community members they have a grudge against.


Now, if you project these programs expanding to other anti-2A states? This is how a great nation dies: not with a bang, but with a bunch of 1-800 Hotlines! .o(

Death of a Great Nation... all in the hands of a bunch of petty controlfreak neighbors ratting on each other for that Tuesday night party you never invited them to.

The Eternal Cautious Optimist in me says that our Constitutional heritage, the Gun Culture, and the Culture of Liberty in America runs FAR too deep and strong for a bunch of displaced LA & NYC denizens (who seem to spread like a virus to every awesome place in America and repeat the political mistakes/intentional malice that made them leave those very cities, in the first place, over and over again: over-burdensome taxes/high cost of living and heavy nanny-state govt intrusion into their daily lives) to hijack, overtake and destroy our culture.

However, observing how gullible the populace are on a whole slew of issues, let alone large geopolitical metric markers? I never underestimate the depth of capacity for the BluePill Sheeple's willful ignorance.

'Funny' how all these gungrabbers seem to have all these programs 'on standby'...just in case another opportune politically expedient tragedy just happens to land on their, like 3 times in a row, consecutively, sequentially, all in less than 6 months: Aurora, Clackamas Mall, Newtown.

How 'lucky' for them.

I hope this doesn't lead to

I hope this doesn't lead to violence.

The Americans used to set up traps for the British arresting officers and shot them when they came to seize their weapons. Some of it was completely staged.

This is just moving us down the road to people getting shot. Someone will end up using that tip line exactly that way. And in Indiana, it's going the opposite way - with an official law that says you can shoot police that invade your home.

There is obviously a divide in states as well. Indiana and New York are going in opposite directions.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
