PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona woman injured in a mass shooting near Tucson and a mother whose son was killed in last year's movie theater shooting in Colorado are demanding a meeting with Republican Sen. Jeff Flake over his vote against gun control legislation.

The gun violence victims and roughly 20 other gun control activists rallied outside Flake's Phoenix office Thursday morning.

Flake has said he supports expanded background checks but voted against the so-called Manchin-Toomey measure that would have done just that because it would have expanded the checks to cover some private gun sales between family members and friends.

Since the vote last month, Flake has declined to meet with gun violence victims who have pledged to regularly protest at his Phoenix office until they get a response.
