Local man still fighting for gun rights

A local man's fight for gun rights has taken a new turn.

The Colorado Court of Appeals has denied an appeal by Bill Martin.

Martin is a convicted felon who had his gun collection raided by the Mesa County Sheriff's Office two years ago.

By state law, his rights were not restored after he served his time, but by federal law, he can own guns.

Martin says he wants to close the gap in the law.

He tells 11 News he plans to file another appeal and will take the case to the state Supreme Court if he has to.
