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.
