The city of Miami, Florida, is once again holding a gun buyback with a twist — the guns collected during the event could end up being transported over to the war-torn country of Ukraine, where Russia has been waging a brutal attack since earlier this year.
People can score a $50, $100, or even $150 gift card if they turn in a firearm during the upcoming buyback this Saturday.
