A coalition of advocates against gun violence are raising awareness of the issue on June 2 by wearing orange. Campaigners say they're wearing orange to mimic the orange vests hunters wear in order to avoid being shot.
It's part of National Gun Violence Awareness Day, which was established this year by a wide array of anti-gun violence groups, as well as other politically left organizations.
Plenty of celebrities have also voiced support for the movement, as have networks HBO and MTV.
