Legalize ticket scalping

Ticket Scalping is the act of buying tickets to a concert or movie and some kind of event, and reselling them yourself, generally for a much higher price. Why such a practice is illegal ill never understand. If I buy something, its mine, I should be able to sell it or destroy it. If I can get someone to pay an outrages amount for it, then I should be able to sell it at that price. The logic behind outlawing ticket scalping is the same behind outlawing price gouging, that if people r being suckered into paying more than they need to the government should step in and stop them from being stupid. People own themselves, therefore they own their own fuck ups. Seeing someone being taken advantage of is sad but if the person is voluntarily going along with it then you have no right to use aggression to prevent it.
