The Daily Caller alerts
us to a gun buyback program being pushed by New York hip-hop mogul Michael "Blue" Williams that would have cops offering concert tickets to see the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce in exchange for firearms. Williams just needs to convince NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to OK it first.
"Our goal is to reach out to individuals who are in my industry, in my world and who I have an association with and get their support," stated Williams. As for Kelly, well he appears receptive to the "Guns for Greatness" program:
"We want to get as many guns off the streets, and if this works, we'd like to support it," said Kelly, who also claimed he'd only go forward with the plan if police officers were present at the time and place of the exchange. "You need police officers present; you'd need the expertise."
