My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all of my guns for what I told her I paid for them.

Don't I remember a Forest Gordon getting convicted of some type of theft involving guns!! How does he now open a gun store?

Owning a gun store does seem like a stretch for Forest. I guess getting a gun dealers license is easier than I thought.

Was that a felony conviction for Gordon? If so?

I read the State v Forest Gordon.{¶9} After hearing all the evidence, the jury returned a verdict of guilty on
both counts. The Ottawa firearms case was a felony of the fifth degree because the jury found that it involved the theft of property valued at less than five hundred dollars. The Kalida case was a felony of the fourth degree, with the jury finding that it involved property “valued at more than five hundred dollars, but less than
five thousand dollars.”

IDK, had that verdict been overturned?

Local gun dealer Forest Gordon, 50, and Dain Stauffer, 36, of Cairo, were also arraigned on charges related to falsifying documents to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Stauffer pleaded not guilty to a charge of falsification to obtain a concealed carry permit, while Gordon, who owns Patriot Arms in Van Wert, entered a not guilty plea to one count of complicity to falsification to obtain a concealed carry permit. Both charges are felonies of the fourth degree.
Both will appear for a pretrial conference at 8 a.m. Wednesday, May 14.
