Would You Turn In Your Guns For A Beyoncé Concert?

February 27, 2013 by  

Would You Turn In Your Guns For A Beyoncé Concert?

What would it take for you to take your guns up to the local police station and turn them in? A $100 gift card? Some free gasoline?

Michael “Blue” Williams, who heads up a hip hop music company called Family Tree Entertainment, wants to make disarming Americans more fashionable among the younger set, particularly among blacks and Latinos aged 16 to 36.

“That’s the audience they need to reach out for, the ones who are carrying the guns and committing the crimes,” Williams said.

He thinks that can be accomplished by offering mentorships and concert tickets to the hottest new shows in return for guns. Among the tickets up for grabs could be a set to Barack Obama darling and recent headline grabber Beyoncé’s world tour concert. It isn’t clear at this time whether Beyoncé or any other pop stars have agreed to get involved.

According to MSNBC, William’s program, “Guns For Greatness,” is already being considered by New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly; but the commissioner wants to study the proposal further before implementing the program.

If New York implements the program, however, it would be one of the first private-sector gun collection initiatives to spring up in the Nation.
