Music mogul wants to trade guns for Beyonce tickets

If hip-hop music manager Michael “Blue” Williams, the head of Family Tree Entertainment, has his way, New Yorkers will be able to trade guns for Beyonce tickets.

That’s part of Williams’ plan for a private-sector gun buyback that he’s pitched to the New York Police Department, the New York Daily News reports.

“We want to get as many guns off the streets, and if this works, we’d like to support it,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told the Daily News.

If his “Guns for Greatness” buyback is approved, Williams, who has managed OutKast and Cee-Lo Green, hopes his celebrity ties will help get both Beyonce and husband Jay-Z on board.

“I think we should all work together to help get guns off the streets,” Williams said.

SNIP:  Stop calling it “GUN BUY-BACK”.  You can’t buy back a gun you never owned.

    They’re concerned about getting ‘guns’ off the streets when they should be more concerned about getting ‘criminals’ off the street.

    Let me see, I’m going to let my 15 year old daughter go to a concert that is marketed to thugs with guns??? Yeeaaahhh, right, that’s gonna be well-behaved audience.

    I’d say it’s a safe bet to assume that there will be a few fights after, if not during, this show.

    I just read (here?) that she and JZ were part of a million dollar shindig put on by Nigeria, monies taken out of anti-poverty aid funds. It was 2006, but still.

    Somebody would have to shoot me with one of those guns to get me to attend a Bee-un-say concert.

    A ticket to a Beyonce extravaganza must be worth -

    what … 50 cents? A dollar?

    Shitty .22s are going for $200.

    Can I get in on this action?

    (if I get to keep the guns)

    I’d buy a ticket to this nasty whores concert, if they’d give me a AR10.

    Bring in an old, non-working gun. Get Beyonce tickets. Sell them on Ebay or scalp them at the venue to some brain-dead schmuck that thinks “She’s all that.” Do this as many times as you can get away with until you have accumulated enough money to buy that new Sig P220. Send a letter of thanks to Beyonce, Williams, and the New York police.
