CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A gun rights advocacy group has formed a political action committee in Nevada with plans to target for defeat a Las Vegas state senator who pushed a bill to require background checks for gun purchases.

Democratic state Sen. Justin Jones was the primary sponsor of SB221 that was passed by the 2013 Legislature and vetoed by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval.

The bill, considered in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, would have required all purchasers of firearms to undergo a background check.

Jones represents District 9 in Las Vegas. The Nevada Firearms Coalition PAC on Monday identified his bid for re-election as its first project.

The group wants to rally Second Amendment supporters in the district to counter Jones' backing from gun control advocates.
