RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond City Council signed off on spending $83,000 on its gun buyback program.

The city will offer $250 for assault-style weapons, $200 for handguns and $150 for rifles.

Last week, city council announced The Robby Poblete Foundation will lead the effort.

The buyback program should launch in late July or August.
