Michelle L. Price, The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS - Nevada's new attorney general wants to find a way to implement a stalled, voter-approved gun background check law when he takes office early next year after his predecessor said the measure couldn't be enforced.

Democrat Aaron Ford, in an interview with The Associated Press, said he'd also be supportive of other gun-safety measures that come out of the state's Democratically controlled Legislature. Gun safety is a prominent topic in the state where a gunman opened fire last year on an outdoor music festival, killing 58.
