    The Discovery channel show has elicited some strong threads in the past, the former star of the cancelled TV show Sons of Guns has had his day in court.

    Why can't we just put this waste of oxygen to death?

    Hayden was sentenced to two life sentences to run concurrently in addition to 40 years to run consecutively.....

    Hayden is not eligible for probation, parole or suspension of sentence......

    I was shocked and saddened by this. I really enjoyed the show and even learned a lot from some of the episodes. It really is too bad that someone can fall so badly. It is also a shame that anti-gunners are loving all of the press.

    IDK know whether or not the guy is truly guilty or not, but...

    From your link in 2014 verbatim...

    "‘Her complaints arose only after her income from the show and [gun] shop stopped. She's still Will's daughter, and he loves her."


    From the OP's link in 2017...

    "He also is charged with aggravated incest of his oldest daughter and former "Sons of Guns" co-star Stephanie Hayden, who appeared on the "Dr. Phil" show in 2014 and said her father entered her bedroom one night about 20 years ago while drunk and pinched and kissed her while trying to take her clothes off. She told the talk show host she managed to escape her father and he did not touch her inappropriately again."


    Just sayin'.


    None of us know what really happened but he has been convicted by a jury so he's going away. Case closed for now.

    i had a close Army friend (M/Sgt.) stationed at a post 2,500 miles from mine. One day I called him: The unit CO answered and informed me my friend was dead but he could not talk about it. Soon there after i saw the officer at his refresher course where i was an instructor. My good friend got a call from his 15 year old daughters guidance counselor. He went to the unit arms room, got a .45, drove into the boonies and offed himself. He had been having sex with his daughter. What a scumbag.

    The perp was found guilty of raping two girls, the older daughter and another daughter who is now 15. Additionally, the prosecutor in another parish charged him with rape. After Hayden was sentenced that prosecutor dropped the charges without prejudice. If Hayden's sentence gets overturned on appeal the prosecutor plans to try him.

    Will is going to spend the rest of his life behind bars where he belongs. I knew Will for more then 20 years. He was always a strang kind of guy. The part he played on the show was BS. He didn't own the company, he was just part owner. Chris Ford and Stephanie ended up getting divorced.
    Red Jack is no longer in business. Joe Meaux, from the show now owns the rights to RJF and runs Meaux Guns, Home Of Aklys Defense..
    It's a shame how one person can screw things up.
    I was told that Will is not liked by the other inmates. Last year he was shanked in his back side in the shower.

    Eh no winners in the whole of it. What a tragedy for all involved. Didn't really care for the show or watch more than an episode or two before losing interest, but after seeing all of this I am sure that I missed nothing special.

    Yep, people in the gun world do stupid unlawful things, just like other people, but news is off topic.
