Sons of Guns Star Will Hayden Abandoned by Lawyers in Child Rape Case

Will Hayden's mug shot

There’s a code of ethics when it comes to lawyers. As unbelievable as that statement sounds, there are some things that they aren’t willing to do. One shining example is lying in court or contributing to the commission of a fraud, which is exactly what a lawyer would be doing if, in the defense of their client, they presented false evidence or made false statements. This week it seems that Will Hayden, former star of the gun-related TV show Sons of Guns and (twice arrested) accused child rapist may have learned that lesson as his legal team abandoned him before his trial could even begin . . .

Oakland Park Business Owner Fights Back. Too Much? [VIDEO]

I’m aware that not all TTAG readers share my opinion on all things gun-related. Which is why Dan, myself and the rest of the team read our comments section: for a reality check. The feedback over on our Facebook page is even more, uh, critical. You might even call the commentators “groundlings,” but I couldn’t possibly comment. Except to say that when I FB’ed this video of an Oakland Park, Florida biz owner beating back armed robbers (click here for the story) with the caption “Too Much?” a mess of folks reckoned…nope. Not enough. Like this . . .

Omaha Woman Mugged in Church [VIDEO]

“A 76-year-old woman was injured and her purse stolen by two teenagers Sunday morning while in the north vestibule at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral,” the caption under this YouTube video informs. This is hardly the first violent attack in or near a church. Why would it be? Thugs know that elderly people attend church.

CSGV: Urging Armed Self-Defense = Blaming the Victim

David Johnson Sr. (courtesy nola.com)

“Commenting on a gruesome case of domestic homicide that occurred in Geismar, Louisiana on August 9, 2015, Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley advised women to do the following,” the anti-gunners at csgv.org report, accurately enough. “Get your concealed weapons permit. Ladies, learn how to safely handle a weapon, learn how to safely store a weapon, and when you’re in a situation like this shoot him in your back yard before he gets in your house. Drop him. I mean, I’m serious. Take the extremes necessary to live a life where you don’t have to worry about your kids and your life.” And that’s where the Campaign to Stop Gun Violence’s rhetoric goes south, so to speak . .

“The step-granddaughter of actor Morgan Freeman was stabbed to death on a street by her deranged boyfriend in Washington Heights early Sunday,” nydailynews.com reports. “Police officers found E’Dena Hines, 33, lying in the middle of W. 162nd near St. Nicholas Ave. with several knife wounds to her chest around 3 a.m. ‘Get out devils! I cast you out Devils in the name of Jesus Christ! I cast you out!’ the 30-year-old man repeatedly said, according to George Hudacko, 65, who saw the attack and called 911. ‘I watched someone get murdered, and there was nothing I could do,’ Hudacko added.” So there were two people who could have . . .

Note to Kim Kardashian: Stick To Selfies

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 10.18.40 AM

I had to “reveal” my gun to someone once. I was at home with my newborn son. It was a long time ago, and fairly uneventful. Which is exactly how it should be. Knowing I was armed was enough to make someone leave my property. If I hadn’t been…. But that’s not a situation Kim Kardashian would ever encounter. She has armed guards to protect her children and her. Which is why the celebrity felt free to use the sickening news of what one man did to an entire family in Texas as the springboard for an anti-gun Twitter rant . . .

Talladega Mayor Larry Barton (courtesy myfoxal.com)

“Larry Barton [above], who is about to run for his fifth term as mayor of Talladega (Alabama) told NBC News from his hospital room at the University of Alabama that the attack began around 7:30 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Cahaba Heights Plaza Barber Shop in Vestavia Hills. ‘Before I could do anything, he jerked the door open and he started hitting me,’ said Barton, 75. The man was wearing a trench coat and a hood, and Barton said he repeatedly hit him in his face, legs and knees.” I thought about filing this one under It Should Have Been a Defensive Gun Use. A 75-year-old man beaten with a baseball bat? That ain’t right. Then again . . .

Contest Entry: What We Can Learn From New York City

times square
By Matthew Howe
New York City gets a bad rap from a lot of folk in the gun-rights community. Not just in terms of their gun control policies, — which are as bad as anyone out there thinks — but in terms of how dirty and dangerous the city is. But is it? Not really. New York City, 2015, is a clean, relatively safe city full of great shops and amazing restaurants. But there’s a catch . . . Read More

Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Ferguson Edition

“After being looted two times in the past year, the Ferguson Market and Liquor Store employees decided to take things into their own hands,” new2share reports in their description of the above YouTube video. “Armed with shotguns and handguns, the employees stood at the front of the store to ensure that no one could enter. When shots rang out in the middle of a protest on West Florissant Ave., many people ran towards the market, but quickly dispersed when guns were drawn.” What else needs saying, really? . . .
