In 2011, their company was picked up for Jupiter Entertainment’s new reality TV series titled “Sons of Guns”. The show premiered on January 26 on the Discovery Channel and showed right from the start that it was going to be a success. The show aired for five seasons and 66 episodes before being canceled due to owner Will Hayden’s incarceration. Nevertheless, Joe continued his career as a firearms specialist.
He became the owner of Red Jacket Firearms LLC and changed the company name to Meaux Guns & Ammo. Furthermore, Joe has launched another project, Akly’s Defense, with facilities next to Meaux Guns & Ammo.
Will Hayden’s Arrest and Cancellation of “Sons of Guns”
The store experienced a number of problems with the law throughout its existence; one was that the store failed to account for ten registered firearm parts, when a regular inspection by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) took place in 2009. However, that was nothing to incriminate Will Hayden.
In August 2014, Will was arrested and charged with molestation of a minor and aggravated crimes against nature. The girl he allegedly assaulted was his 12-year-old daughter, and in addition, he was accused of aggravated rape by his eldest daughter, who said she was raped when she was 12 years old by her father. Three years later, Will was convicted of two counts of aggravated rape and one count of forcibly raping two girls over the course of two decades. Ultimately, he was sentenced to a third life sentence for rape plus 40 years, and transferred to Louisiana State Penitentiary.
His incarceration brought the immediate cancellation of “Sons of Guns”, and Joe took over the gun business.
