Yankee, move south

I first began this post with the phrase, “And so it starts…”, but realized that this isn’t the beginning.  It isn’t even the middle.  Laws such as this one have been creeping into our lives since the day we agreed, as a country, to establish rights through our Constitution.  It is the inability of people to let others simply be.  It is the bastardization and politicizing of individual freedoms.  It is the lack of discernment from people that have been raised on un-American ideals that refuse to accept the very foundational concept of our country – that other people have a right to their own set of beliefs, and they have the right to live their lives in a way that reflects said beliefs, and our country was intended to be a place where the government had as little involvement as possible in such things.  There was an exponentially greater sense of self-responsibility, integrity, and faith exhibited in those who founded our country.  I can’t imagine that they would have ever imagined these people and these circumstances, that are bringing America to her knees.

So now, not a start, but another breathtaking example of government run amok, and turning citizen upon citizen.
Nearly a year before signing the nation's most stringent gun control measure into law, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched a hotline that allows state residents to report illegal gun owners in exchange for a $500 reward.
The measure is part of a four-pronged approach established by the governor's office to reduce gun violence in urban communities, according to CBS6Albany.com.
New Yorkers can call the "Gun Tip Line" if they believe someone they know has an illegal gun. Hotline calls are answered by state police and tips are referred to local law enforcement, the station reported.
To the freedom-loving, 2nd Amendment revering, people of New York, did you vote for these people?

Bloomberg is the most dangerous man in America.

A nanny state progressive who is the 13th richest person in the world enabling him to take his control freak laws nationwide.
