Will Hayden is known for his business in Louisiana called Red Jacket Firearms. They are a firearm specialty company, buying, selling and making firearms.

The show is fairly popular.

Was...fairly popular.

Hayden has been arrested twice in the past couple of weeks or so for charges of child molestation and more recently, rape.

Of his own 12 year-old daughter.

'Sons of Guns' star booked on rape charges

The alleged victim told deputies with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office that since March 2013, that Hayden had raped her almost daily, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The victim says Hayden took her virginity when she was 11-year-old and would allegedly take her in his bedroom and rape, according to the affidavit. The victim told authorities she did not report the acts because she feared physical abuse from Hayden.

He is reported to have used the common threat of "tell nobody: I'm all you have".

The show is CANCELED!

On Wednesday, Discovery Channel confirmed the network has canceled its docu-series “Sons of Guns.” The news comes two weeks after TMZ reported that the show’s star, Will Hayden, was arrested in Louisiana on child molestation charges involving his 12-year-old daughter. Although he was released after posting bail, Hayden was arrested again on Tuesday with an added charge of alleged aggravated rape of a child.

“Given the serious and horrific nature of the charges against Will Hayden, we have decided to halt further production of ‘Sons of Guns’ and cancel the series,” the network said in a statement Wednesday.

This should be the least of his worries now.

For those unfamiliar with this fine entertainment program, here's a nice distillation of what it's a;; about. They have modifed and built a modern Thomspon machine gun for a local sheriff's dept.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
