NY Snitch Line: A $500 reward
 
We have met the Enemy and he is Us.

Quote:

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 CBS6Albany.com.

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

I wonder how many people will report others that they are pissed off at, whether there is a gun there or not?

This ought to be good!

Ring, Ring

That was usually only if they wanted their apartment or house. That could never happen in the US because people's neighbors are such friends...
