    Maybe this should end up in the stolen gun sticky, but since it's local news also I'll post it here:

    The movie prop Winchester that John Wayne used in the movie "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" was stolen while on display in the "Movie Madness" memorabilia museum, on SE Belmont Street today. From what I recall, it had the over-size lever and has "John Wayne" engraved on the receiver. Obviously going to a private party scumbag, kinda hard to fence this one.
    By the way, the SAA that Clint Eastwood used in "Josie Wales" was on display there also, but after today maybe not.
