State lawmakers were greeted by protesters at the capitol Wednesday as they returned from summer recess.

The Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence staged what they call a "Die-in" outside the capitol.

Protesters laid on the ground covered in red paint, symbolizing the 91 Americans killed by gun violence everyday.

Protesters are asking lawmakers to give them a hearing on gun violence prevention legislation.
