GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Grand Rapids City Commission voted to approve another gun buyback program in the city. Mayor Rosalynn Bliss said the vote was unanimous.

Gift cars will be rewarded for two categories of guns.
Tier One includes assault rifles and semi-automatic handguns, which would get $200 each.
Tier Two includes revolvers, shotguns and rifles, getting $100 each.
Exact details of the program have not been announced yet. The last time Grand Rapids held a gun buyback programwas in 2020.
