I'm compiling a list of all the reports of the VCDL Bloomberg Gun Give-Away II that took place on May 17th.

I've also added a list of all known videos and photo collections of the event at the bottom of the page.

If you've found one that's not listed here, please PM it to me and I'll add it to the list.

NOTE: Some of these links are for the AP wire coverage and though the outlet is different, the article is the same.
