Default NYS Snitch Hotline

New York State is now offering $500 to people who snitch on gun owners.
Menrec has the story.
And, The Troy Record also has news on the tip line on their Facebook page – It is real. There is actually someone there to take your tips… So that state officials can come take your guns.

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 State Police 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 seem to recall another country who told their people to snitch on each other. Hummm I think it as grease, no not grease, maybe it was guyana, no not that one either. But I do know it started with a G.

Hmm... how illegal would it be to harrass call them complaining about there not being a hotline for real crimes?

When I called the similiar DC hotline for Paul Gregory's misdeed the cop on the line was a pretty good sport about it when I ribbed them about not arresting the ja.ck.as.s yet.
.
But i have the feeling in New York it might be different...
