Posted on 01/19/2013 2:00:30 PM PST by Doc Savage
In a startling follow-up to his spate of new gun laws which were passed last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced his new 'Gun-Snitch' program in which both adults and children will have a chance to turn in the name or names of potentially violent gun criminals for money.
Cuomo announced a new 1-800 number (1-800-RAT-CALL) which you can call 24/7 to provide the New York State Police with the name and address of any person you know has a gun. Children are encouraged to call and accuse their parents as well as other family members and friends. For each gun confiscated the tipster will receive a $100 EBT card personally signed by Governor Cuomo.
Cuomo additionally announced that if it is verified by their arrest that the gun owner is an NRA member or a self-admitted member of the Tea Party the reward will be doubled.
The head of the New York State Police says that massive swat teams are now being mobilized throughout the state to immediately follow-up on each and every name. He stated that only legally-owned guns of law-abiding citizens will be confiscated. The state police will not be collecting guns from known criminals or those arrested for committing crimes with unlicensed guns. When asked why, he stated that criminals need guns to commit their crimes thereby creating jobs for law enforcement.
Cuomo also announced a special state commission to set up a similar program for liberals and Democrats to turn in known Conservatives as enemies of the state. A similar bounty program would be set up to induce citizens to identify and rid the state of this criminal political element.
In two words, Heil Hitler! If true, that is what it is!
This is all bullshit.
Make no mistake. If they could get away with this kind of stuff they would.
Tyranny has NO boundaries.
Don’t put it past him, Cuomo is demented.
“Potentially violent gun criminals”. Will that include your law-abiding politically conservative neighbor?
Swamp the system with false reports.
Why not go straight for the kids?
“Hey Johnny, you don’t want Sandy Hook, do you? Tell us if your Dad (or Mom) have guns.”
And what rewards will he give to kids, a gold star?
You really should let people know this is satire.
I wouldn't put anything past our royals in government though...
What if people start making false snitches sending the police on wild goose chases?
..wonder how many “snitches” this moron is going to get killed
Heh, nicely done. The only thing missing was a link. Given the tendency for people (including myself) not to read the “whole story”, that would have been the finishing touch on a very well-done bit of satire.
Good job! :-)
The problem with satire is too often ‘tis indistinguishable from realistic news.
Thought this had to be one of the semi-news/semi-satire posts.......
“Hey Johnny, you dont want Sandy Hook, do you? Tell us if your Dad (or Mom) have guns.”
Not quite worded that way, but my kids’ doctor essentially said the same thing to one of my kids.
As in Communist countries, parents who own guns are now REQUIRED to teach their kids how to lie convincingly (or not let them know you have guns).
Before the halfway point, it is your responsibility to recognize satire.
Had me going for a few seconds. Good one.
I know of a guy who blatantly violated the law by openly brandishing a highly-illegal high-capacity magazine in Washington, DC. Where can I collect my payoff? Or does it limited to just New York?
Read “The Gulag Archipelago”. The Russians were encouraged to turn in their friends and neighbors for as little as expressing doubt that Stalin's plans would succeed. The ironic footnote to this was that those who did the snitching were also packed up in trains and sent to the work camps in Siberia to DIE!
Cuomo is a mafia punk....don't forget it.
I don’t think you should write and post untrue information. This helps no one and people might believe it.
Yes, I know the original Doc Savage post was not ‘real news’.
But for those of us who were naturalized, the snitch on parents scenario were not fiction ......
First, at what age is the parent not allowed to stay in the room with the doc and the kid?
There must be some cleverly worded response we could teach our kids.
The only thing that comes to mind is to train the kid to immediately exit the exam room and then HOLLER down the hall:
“Hey MOM! The Doc is EFFing with the Second Amendment!”
It may humor, however not far fetch. I recall reading a National Geographic Magazine years earlier where the subject was Cuba. It stated that in Cuba if you were to have a guest over you must let the neighborhood leader know you will have a guest. If you don’t you will be fine. Either you let the neighborhood watchman know or someone will snitch on you, either way your screw.
Now just remember how our government had pediatrics physicians asking if you have guns in your home. So I would not pass them to do it.
The snot-nosed little ingrates!
As a New Yorker, we are already overloaded with tyrannical laws. We don’t need satirical posts about more. But thanks for playing.
Only a matter of time. God please bless the USA.
It should be remembered that truth is often stranger than fiction.
When handguns were outlawed in D.C. in 1976, posters went up everywhere advertising a city snitch line “to report an illegal gun, and you do not have to give your name”. The poster depicted a revolver pointed straight at the reader, with two evil eyes glaring behind it.
When reading Soviet Russia History, one thing stands out - the government wanted everyone turned into a snitch. When people can’t trust each other, they can’t organize to overthrow tyranny.
Yer syntax caused me to look down and see it’s “humor” but, the way that loonatic cuz going on and on, at the top of his voice, it wouldn’t surprise me if and when he does it.
Same thing with nazi Germany. The worst thing is that they turned the children into the worst of them all with parents learning to fear the little gestapo informer sitting across the dinner table.
This is the guy Juan McCain said he would have put in his cabinet as HUD Director. My blood went cold when he said that.
A KNOWN OFFENDER.
So, if creepazoid pukebag Cuomo comes up with something like this, 10,000 phone calls on Bloomberg would just hit the spot.
Guns are so difficult to get in NYC legally and penalties are so harsh for illegal gun-owning that professional criminals are the principal illegal gun-owners there. This is why no such program will be implemented - over 90% of the illegal gun owners arrested would be black or Hispanic, and that would be racist.
Breaking News - Mali and Sasha turn in their secret Service Detail for carrying a gun.
Now demand all secret service detail to carry a slingshot instead.
Oh wait a pink Hello Kitty Bubble Gun Has just been banned from school.
sarcasm just one of the many services I deliver.
Seemed real until the end of the 2nd paragraph where it became more and more obvious that it was satire. But Hey- Expects parts of this to be implemented soon.
Hey MOM! The Doc just grabbed my privates!”
Exactly. I just read the other thread where a Congressman is suggesting that citizens' "assault weapons" should be housed in a government owned depot. Is that more or less believable than this?
A big fat Satire in the heading would help some people who read this obvious BS post. This type of thing(posting BS without informing us that it is not true) doesn’t help those who don’t recognize satire, or outright lies, when they see it.
