Guns For Beyonce Tickets?

Hip-hop mogul Blue Williams wants to launch a program in which New Yorkers can trade in their guns for Beyonce concert tickets. And the NYPD might be down for it.
Williams, the head of Family Tree Entertainment, has pitched the city’s first private-sector gun buyback program to NYPD brass and is waiting for Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly’s okay. "We want to get as many guns off the streets, and if this works, we’d like to support it,” Kelly told the Daily News, adding that the proposal needs more study. If given the green light, Williams — who has managed the wildly successful careers of OutKast and Cee-Lo Green and has the ear of hip-hop and rap royalty — said he’ll solicit help from none other than Beyoncé.
Beyonce has three concerts slated for Brooklyn's brand new 19,000-seat Barclays Center in August. Tickets start at $225 and go as high as $3529.  And that's before the scalpers add their cut.
