I'll tell you what I think.

Russia has built a number of Kalashnikov manufacturing plants throughout Latin America. Just ask your local Kalashnikov salesperson for the model AK of your choice. No real problem. Kalashnikovs are outlawed all around the world. Kalashnikovs continue to sell all around the world.

"There are about 100 million Kalashnikov assault rifles worldwide, of which half are counterfeit, i.e. produced without licenses, patents or intergovernmental agreements," he said.

Hitler, Mau and Stalin all disarmed their population. This is about control and the state must control every aspect of human life. We live and serve the state. Socialist America - brought to by the illiterate 47%.

I was taught not to be a tattletale as a kid and I think most of us were, too. Even cops despise snitches. My grandfather was the Chief of Police and he made it clear how he felt on this topic. (We are Texans, my husband is from Louisiana and was taught these same values.) Obviously, this New York snitch line is funded by the government. Wow, American taxpayers are likely footing the pay out. If minors packing illegal heat are robbing and pillaging, citizens don't need a pay-off to call police, justice is enough incentive for me if I were a victim of crime. This law seems more about reporting one's neighbors, friends and even family members just for having a gun at home. This is so wrong in so many ways!

witch hunt. joe public are misinformed, ignorant, greedy and stupid. this will cause a lot of deaths by gun owners paranoid thinking every one's after their guns legal or otherwise.

"Gun Owners" vs. "illegal firearm" owners?

Wouldn't the headline have been less idealogically tabloid, but more honest..if the "illegal" caveat was included?

Is there not a pretty damn important distinction between possesing a firearm legally and illegally?

If a teenage thug flashes a gun he bought illegally...I want someone to drop a dime on him.

Please be specific on why you think this is a bad thing. Provide me with a scenario?

Oh wow, yeah, and tell us how the heck can any joe or jane smuck know whether someone has a legal or illegal firearm?... Some criminals might be stupid to tell you, but most won't... So tell us, are "tipsters" going to read people's mind so all "tipsters" get the $500 because such people are too lazy to work for it?...

"Tipsters" are just going to report anyone and everyone they see with a firearm just to try to get this money, the legal citizens will be searched, as well as their properties, and their weapons will be registered by force through this system...

The plan of the Demonrats is obvious, this is an attempt to register as many firearm owners, and their firearms as possible.

Time to pull out the phone book and report everyone in it. Of course authorities will be flooded with 'reports' so they will be quite busy. Eventually you might just make a living by doing this reporting.

Lets see, if I report 1000 people a month and if 50 actually have unreported guns, that's 50 x $500 = $25,000 for one months work. Do this successfully for 12 months so that’s $300,000 for the year.

OK you got me the tip was correct you can have all the guns.

NYS residents should call the tipline and report the names of all the legislators that voted for the recent bill, and any law enforcement officials that publicly supported the bill.
Keep that tipline busy folks!

Lovely suggestion...
Just be sure to call from a pay phone.

The New York black market must be salivating at your neighbor, get $500, then you can use that to get a gun off the black market for free! (to you)....

Wait a moment, NY can not even process war veterans for coverage of benefits for injuries coming back home and taking up to two years in bull crap paperwork but can afford to pay for snitches on gun owners?

You know, when a nation gets this way is time to hang by the balls all those dirty politicians that have taking hold of Americans future.

Here, here, I for one am happy that the majority of the people in this state are down for beating the hell out of tyrants. Not saying I condone violence, but a few good knocks will keep peoples noses where they belong.

This is scary stuff. I have legal firearms my neighbors have never seen them. I have never seen a firearm in the hands of my neighbors. I also will not let them be seen in my hands, simply because even though things like this are not happening in Missouri there is a chance someone could call for no reason.

Too many times have we heard of the tyrants turning neighbor against neighbor. How many killer dictators have done that? How many books warning of such events have bee written?

I agree with the poster who said this is a reason to stay out of New York. Here I do not have to register squat, what I have is for me to know and no one else's business.

Where I live there is not forced registration. I guess you can register it if you want. They will be happy to put down every weapon you own.

My point is though in Missouri there are a large number (I am not going to bother to guess the number and it is not that important to be exact to look up) of firearms. People love guns here. You try to take any of them away and you are likely to be sent away in fear. A large number of the guns in Missouri are legally owned even if they are not registered. What does it matter to you or anyone else what weapons a person has as long as they are not a problem?

Why is it important for people to have registration laws?

New Yorkers remember to make sure the "officers" have a search warrant in hand and you get to read it before you allow them in. After they leave, finding your guns were all legal, acquire the services of a lawyer and force the "officers" to give up the name of the false accuser so that the false accuser can be properly sued for the crime.

Where does slander end and probable cause begin? Is it based solely on the legality of the supposed allegation?

There should be a law against incriminating someone without proof.

Our society is just plan idiotic. Dumb laws are dumb.

Now that is an awfully good point I hadn't thought of as a separate issue. You raise a VERY good point now that I think of it. In an environment of general wide spread financial hardship, $500 is no small thing. It's literally a few dollars OVER my monthly mortgage payment here, actually. So, the issue of false charges and outright malicious reporting, beyond just the opportunistic I'd first written this in relation to, becomes a real concern.

Maybe it wouldn't be as damaging if someone lives on a dead end road with neighbors who all know each other and can hear about the mistake to understand what happened later. It's a world different for someone who gets a warrant squad making a dynamic entry raid against an apartment in a huge complex? That would hang on a person as long as they lived in that complex....even for a totally unfounded accusation..wouldn't it? Neighbors would never look the same again. Not really.

So when are people making the move down to good ol' Texas?
You've heard the saying everything's bigger in Texas... That includes the guns.
Not to mention the economy is on the rise at an astoundingly rate.

When I read your OP, it made me think of the lady who supposedly had big brother called on her for voicing her discontent with the reassessment of her property value at a town meeting.


The one where big brother was called on the facebook gun owning kid.

My line of thinking was that people do not understand that if they play into this system for fast cash, spite, or just busy-bodiness, they are promoting its proliferation, and could thereby become an unintentional victim themselves. It could become like the Salem trials, and many people could suffer before the mass populous comes to their senses.

Again, it's just idiocy. I feel sad for people, because they don't understand what they're doing.

The state of New York has some of the most strict gun laws in the nation (and yet every hoodlum and gang member has a gun)....

So registration is working out well then

I am glad they have tabs on all those in the criminal element with a registered gun.
It would be funny if not sad that the laws are working more against the law abiding people than the criminals.

I am happy I live in a state that registration is not mandatory. As long as I pass the background check and have the money I can leave the shop the same day and take any gun I want home (aside from those that would require a permit such as a full automatic weapon).

Indeed! I unknowingly broke the Sullivan Law a long, long time ago.
You actually have to have the unloaded gun in a locked container in the trunk of the car you are in when you drive through that Nazi state, and the ammo can not legally be in the trunk with it!
