New Orleans musician offers kids trumpets for guns 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A New Orleans trumpeter, vocalist and bandleader is offering kids trumpets in exchange for guns. Shamarr Allen started the project last week, after a 9-year-old boy was shot and killed and two teens wounded, news agencies reported. “I have a 9-year-old son and I grew up in that environment so I understand what those kids are going through. They aren’t bad kids, they just don’t have anything to do,” Allen told WVUE-TV.
