New York offering $500 reward for reporting people with guns
Wow New York is pretty sad. First they try to ban sodas now this? There is no way some random person calling can possibly know if someone is a legal or illegal gun owner unless they know them personally in which case New York is paying people to snitch on those who have guns. Sounds to me like this is more for New York to identify who has or does not have guns. What is going on?
For more than a year, New York state has maintained a tip line allowing people to report illegal gun owners and collect a $500 reward.
CBS-6 news reported the existence of the tip line on Wednesday. It was previously a “well-kept secret” that received little promotion from state officials or fanfare in the media, according to the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.
A February 2012 press release from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office first publicly announced the tip line, saying it was designed to “encourage citizens to report illegal firearm possession.”

I just don't see it working well. Imho it sounds like a recipe for disaster. Let's say person a does not like person b. Person a calls the authorities, and reports that person b has a gun... etc
