Discovery Channel finally released a statement over the legal case that falls upon its "Sons of Guns" star Will Hayden. The network choose to halt production and cancel the series after allegations that Hayden rapes his own 12-year-old daughter made headlines.

Hayden was arrested on Tuesday, August 26 for aggravated rape, just a few weeks after he was detained on accusation that he molested his daughter. According to the affidavit from the new arrest, the alleged victim told the authorities that she was raped almost daily between March 2013 to July 2014 when she was 11 and later turned 12.

Discovery Channel chose to distance itself from the reality show star. "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.

"Sons of Guns" follows Hayden and his Red Jacket Firearms company which buys, sells and rebuilds firearms. The Red Jacket Firearms has cut ties with him, saying, "Red Jacket Firearms LLC has initiated and received full legal separation as an entity, from William M. Hayden. With heavy hearts, we will be continuing to operate and ensure the fulfillment of new customer orders, back orders and to provide support to those affected by these new developments."

Shooting is to good for him. Put him in a prison where he can be gang raped daily.

What do you expect from a guy who plays with guns all day! These nuts are GOP zealots who preach family value and raping their own daughters.

Well no not all gun lovers are that way. But we must wonder about people that think they need to stock up on guns. You can only use one at a time. You have to also wonder about their mental state. For some reason they think they may have to take on the Federal Government of the United States of America. Not going to happen. But if you must think that why don't you go to Iraq sign up with ISIS. They are looking for a few good men.

This is a terrible tragedy for the family and you wonder if there is more to the story. That said, no one has been convicted of anything as of this moment.

MeltTheGuns: Correlation does not imply causation. I'm sure there are some very liberal rapists out there too. a126: Irony. JackASs: Pfft... made me chuckle. On topic: Hope the guy gets his 'just reward'... seriously. Rape is inexcusable in any sense of the word, but your own daughter?

How far can go a lie; the anti-second amendment people have no regards for their own, how low can go political dispute. Obvious this is not true.

I truly wonder if you have any idea how moronic and childish you sound. Let me guess, this is Bush's fault too, right? Buffoonery is your strong suite.
