Michael (Blue) 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.

"The Beyoncé show is coming to Brooklyn; the Jay-Z show is coming to Yankee Stadium. 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," Williams, 43, said Monday.

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

Beyoncé is slated to perform at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in August, while Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are set to play Yankee Stadium in July. Williams hopes to also talk Jay-Z into the guns for tickets deal -- once police sign off on it. - [NY Post]

As mentioned, Beyoncé is playing three shows at Barclays (and one at the Izod Center) in August, including the just-added 8/5 show.

This type of exchange system wouldn't be quite as effective at the concerts this site usually promotes.

I wouldn't trade a water pistol for a ticket to see her or her dopey husband. All of this is just more publicity for B & J. It will not make any difference on the streets.
