New York to launch gun snitch line

Thirty pieces of Cuomo’s silver is $500

In German-occupied regions in World War II, the Nazis offered rewards to people who informed on the location of Jews in hiding.

(Eyewitness to History) – …It was posted that the penalty for hiding Jews is death, but for showing their hiding places special rewards will be given.


(Historical Boys Clothing) – …There were rewards for informing on Jews and French people hiding Jews. Conditions were very difficult under German occupations. Not uncommonly French collaborators informed in Jews for the most seemingly inconsequential rewards. That was how the Gestapo found the Jewish boy in Au revoir les enfants–a true account.


(United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) – …Throughout German-occupied Europe, the Nazis made a concerted effort to locate Jews in hiding. German officials and their collaborators harshly penalized those who aided Jews and offered rewards to individuals willing to turn in Jews.


Today, the New York Department of Criminal Justice Services is hunting down suddenly illegal guns with the same fervor the Nazis hunted down Jews.  They sent out this letter to to police agencies in New York State, according to Shall Not Be Questioned.

At a time when all of us are finding ourselves doing more with less, a reminder about a resource available from New York State that can assist you in your efforts to solve cases, prevent crime and better serve and protect your communities.

The 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). While the state will provide the administrative support and fund the rewards, the investigation and validity of the tip will be up to each local department.

To spread the word about this free resource, New York State is planning a comprehensive campaign, including public service announcements that will air on television and radio stations across Upstate.

The tip line can provide your agencies with another avenue for receiving intelligence about crimes being committed in your jurisdictions. This initiative is designed for communities where no tip lines are in place and is not meant to replace existing gun tip lines.

Here’s how the tip line operates:

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, while allowing the individual to remain anonymous. The caller will be informed that this program is not the traditional gun buyback program but rather is focused on identifying individuals who are carrying an illegal firearm.

The State Police will in turn contact the appropriate police agency with the lead to initiate an investigation. Staff from the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) will follow up with that agency to determine the validity of the lead. Once the investigation is completed, the police agency would convey to DCJS the outcome of the investigation.

If the information leads to an arrest for the illegal possession of a firearm, the “tipster” will be awarded $500. DCJS staff will handle all of the financial transactions.

State Police staff will explain the program in its entirety upon notifying an agency that a lead has been generated for their jurisdiction. If you have any questions in the interim, please contact DCJS Deputy Commissioner Tony Perez in the Office of Public Safety at 518-485-7610.

How long will it be before someone has to die over a standard capacity handgun magazine?

How long will it be before “law enforcement” officers get killed enforcing New York’s new law?  You can bet Cuomo and the bill supporters won’t be the ones on the front lines making the arrests of formerly law-abiding New York State residents.

How long will it be before gun owners decide to be proactive against rogue “law enforcement” officers violating their oath?    Or the person or persons calling the “hotline”?

We can’t imagine anything good coming of offering people $500 to turn in their neighbors for owning a gun or accessory that was perfectly legal to own a few months before.

Just as nothing good happened from the Nazis paying citizens to turn in their neighbors as Jews or for harboring Jews before and during World War II.

  1. It would be a crying shame to use their methods against them. Spam them with bogus tips, or putting the text number up as weather, lotto, sports scores, etc… bury them in non compliance. Is it time for us to start monkeywrenching them? I do agree that someones going to die over this nonsense, all because Cumo has presidential aspirations…

  2. Do you know a person carrying a firearm here in Illinois without a government issued permission slip?

    Let us know, upon their arrest the taxpayers of Illinois will hook you up with a five hundred dollar check.

    Lisa madigan.

    P.S. a special thanks to the NRA for making this possible….

    Yeah yeah , I know. I’m being hard on the NRA but it is what it is.
    Produce your papers!!! Sheesh!

  3. In your article you failed to mention what the Resistance in Nazi occupied Europe did to those who snitched to Germans…

  4. Time to “plant” an “illegal” gun on/around Cuomo’s home/vehicle/family members and turn them in to the gun “hot line”, or just turn them in by saying you “thought you saw” an “illegal gun” in their possesion. Turn in police/detectives/LEOs until they get fed up with chasing wild geese. Keep ’em guessing. Meanwhile, take the “law” to court to get it declared unconstitutional. Glad I’m not in NY state, although, Illinois isn’t as “gun friendly” as I would prefer with the “National Socialist” democrats ruining/running the state.

    1. I’m certain that I saw Mr. Bloomberg walking down Wall Street with an M-16! It had a grenade launcher and a selector switch that allowed full-auto fire!
      Go get him, Coppers!!!!

  5. The snitch number is toll free and there is no law against calling them. Americans everywhere should call them as often as possible and then put them on hold to tie up their lines (I just did it).

  6. The NAZIs won. They are Liberals now. Kind of a misnomer as they are all petty dictators at heart. America you voted for the Mancurian Candidate and now he is free to impose his great program.

  7. Will Cuomo be the FIRST politician to have blood on his hands? If so, kiss you political aspirations good-bye!
