Photo Credit: Mario Tama/GettyIf you have a phone, and you are aware that your neighbor, your friend, or even your family member is a gun owner, you can now single-handedly launch an investigation into their activities by using a new toll free “tip line.”

The tip line was set up in New York State by Gov. Andrew Cuomo as an outgrowth of the infamous SAFE Act, reports David Codrea, who quoted from a news item published in The Niagara Falls Reporter.
