SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A former colorful TV pitchman in Utah facing federal charges in a wildlife harassment case is appealing a judge’s order requiring him to remove guns from his home.

Dell “Super Dell” Schanze argues in court documents filed Friday that he’s not a danger to the public and the order violates the Second Amendment.

Schanze is asking the common pretrial condition imposed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Brooke Wells be withdrawn.

He has protested the requirement before, but authorities say he allowed a search of his home for guns last week after an admonishment from the judge.

Schanze is facing two misdemeanor charges from prosecutors who say he kicked an owl while riding his motorized paraglider.

The 45-year-old Schanze has pleaded not guilty. His attorney wants to back his Feb. 17 trial date.
