    From another forum:

    The letter shown below is from DCJS but was distributed by a Law Enforcement Association to all it’s members. I’ve removed the Association’s information to protect our source but wanted to show you the depths to which we are falling. Orwell was right; just 29 off years on the date!


    The Letter

    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.

    Flood the system with calls about cops and politicians with illegal magazines.

    So how do they get the reward to the correct person if the tips are "anonymous"?

    But I agreee with ZXCVBOB. Call in every officer/bodyguard you see with a "high capacity" magazine.

    This is the very first thing that came to mind.

    I'm going to see if there is a NY state RKBA board we could post this on.

    This reminds me of both Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Both had turn in your buddy type programs.

    I'd be willing to consider to give "the other side" the benefit of doubt if they stopped pulling crap like this; it just shows that their true nature is evil.

    The true American Way.

    I just totally fail to understand how many people don't see this stuff for what it is. Do they have no brains? No understanding of history? How can so many be so weak?

    Lord, I truly pray that the freedom loving people can get out of Ny, NJ, etc., etc, etc.

    Try to hang on.

    zxcvbob's idea might work.

    If it doesn't matter what state we live in, publish the numbers and many of us will call. "Caller ID" might ruin such a movement from outside.
    But we could say that we were up there TDY or on a vacation.

    Reminds me more of Salem. Isn't this why we supposedly have the right to question our accusers?

    Sounds like McCarthyism when they wanted you to turn your nieghbors in for being communists.

    It seems that some people, the ones who think this kind of thing is a good idea, believe that utopia is where everyone is taken care of by the State. They think depending on the State to supply and insure all the comforts of life is the ideal of humanity. What they don't ever offer are ideas for where the magic pot of money is located, the one that would pay for it all.

    LEOs better be careful if the state pushes this. Many will resist.

    I don't see how you can make an "anonymous" call to the police. Wouldn't the phone company at least have a record of the number and time of the call?

    I think this has been around for a while.
    When my mom came to visit a couple of years ago, we took the kids to the Bronx zoo. I remember seeing a poster in the train station offering a similar deal.
    I also saw another one about 'deceptively colored firearms' as I recall.

    I live on long Island, and I have only been to the city a couple of times, and always because I had visiting relatives who wanted to do the tourist thing.
