for reporting illegal gun owners...... To me it's the beginning stage of divide and conquer.... neighbor against neighbor.

Nearly a year before signing the nation's most stringent gun control measure into law, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched a hotline that allows state residents to report illegal gun owners in exchange for a $500 reward.

The measure is part of a four-pronged approach established by the governor's office to reduce gun violence in urban communities, according to

New Yorkers can call the "Gun Tip Line" if they believe someone they know has an illegal gun. Hotline calls are answered by state police and tips are referred to local law enforcement, the station reported.

“This initiative seeks to turn neighbor against neighbor and use their own tax dollars to pay for the $500 reward,” Republican Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin told the station.

Three police agencies contacted by for comment said they have not received tips from state police. Two of the agencies said they were unaware the program existed before this week.

Cuomo and legislative leaders said after announcing a budget deal Wednesday night that they will continue to discuss changes in January's gun control law before a provision kicks in banning the sale of 10-bullet magazines.

The gun measure outlaws the purchase of any magazines that carry more than seven bullets, the nation's most stringent limit. That would have put a severe limit on the sale of guns with industry-standard 10-bullet magazines when the provision of the law went into effect April 15.

"There is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine. That doesn't exist, so you really have no practical option," Cuomo said. He told reporters that any suggestion this will be a rollback of the law is "wholly without basis."

Cuomo said the state needs to allow the sale of handguns and rifles with 10-shot magazines, but New Yorkers will still be required to keep no more than seven bullets in them, except at shooting ranges and competitions. Violating the seven-bullet limit is a misdemeanor but a violation if the magazine is in the owner's home.

Cuomo minimized the cleanup now needed in the bill as addressing "ambiguities" and "grammatical errors" and routine for complex measures. They include exempting police and their weapons and allowing Hollywood to continue to film violent movies and TV shows in New York using weapons outlawed under his measure.

Tom King, president of the New York Rifle & Pistol Association, said the move will affect gun sellers but does nothing for gun owners.

He says the group plans to sue this week to overturn the gun law, which also banned sales of some formerly legal semi-automatic firearms and requires federal background checks for private gun sales.

Although Cuomo said Wednesday that the gun bill was developed over months within his administration, it was rushed to a vote in the Legislature after closed-door negotiations Jan. 15. Cuomo issued an order approved by the Legislature that suspends the three days' public review of all bills under the constitution.
But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Remember how the White house "snitch on your neighbor" website got deluged by people mocking it until it closed down?

How about residents of NY doing the same thing and reporting the POLICE who have ILLEGAL GUNS according to the ban. Spam the crap out of it to the point its useless.
If you can't trust people with freedom, how can you trust them with power ?

Like they need a reward system...

...Everyone knows the gangs have illegal guns. Are they shaking them down? NO!!!

They want the law abiding citizen's guns. NOT the thug, gang member's guns.

Besides, I thought all the "Gun buy programs" were taking them "off the streets"?

Dividing, rather than uniting people, has always been a way of growing government and empowering politicians ---- nothing more.

That's all this is really about.
Really has nothing to do with guns, nothing to do with reducing crime.

it will cause problems, reporting legally owned guns because someone got mad, saw someone with one going or returning from hunting or a shooting range.
This will not remove guns from the gangs, just piss them off more and then they will retaliate.
Guns dont kill people, they only provide a path
Legal gun owners will be punished because the government doesnt know how to keep the criminals from buying them.
