Totally incorrect.

Depends on the individual city's laws.

And his city's laws state that you cannot discharge a firearm within city limits and he lives outside of city limits, hence me saying he is lucky for living outside the city limits.

BAM!!

You made a generalized statement. Perhaps if, for once, you chose to post in complete sentences rather than your stream-of-consciousness texting we would all understand what you better. Perhaps if you had written " ...HE doesn't live inside HIS city's limits"? Yes. I think that would have worked better for you.

I'll ignore the BAM. Not particularly original in the context of the subject under discussion.

Update, Laptop-shooting dad makes up with daughter.

ALBEMARLE, N.C., March 7 (UPI) -- A North Carolina man who posted a video to YouTube depicting him shooting his teenage daughter's laptop computer said he and the girl have reconciled.

Tommy Jordan, who posted the 8-minute, 30-second clip on YouTube in early February, told NBC's "Today" show he and his daughter, Hannah Marie, 15, have made up since he shot her computer nine times with hollow-point bullets in retaliation for a profanity-laced Facebook post she wrote about her parents.

I PROBABLY would not have blown the laptop away....HOWEVER, a well place 12 pound sledge does wonders......either on the laptop or between darlin daughters eyes.

I saw the Today show interview with the dad and daughter.

To everyone who thought Dad was evil and a big old meanie:

He saved her hard drive. He took it out of the laptop before he plugged it.

And he gave it back to her on the show.

I was extremely impressed with this man, well the whole family after seeing the Today interview. I think Matt was too. Apparently his video struck a nerve in the hearts of parents worldwide as they received 3 times as many positive comments as they did negative ones.

It's all stunt to promote some parenting e-book of his I thought? AND this is a horrible example of parenting.

Moderator cut: Just a head's up: "NSFW" means "not safe for work" and usually refers to language, adult content, etc.

NSFW NSFW

The guy is a do as I say, not as I do parent. No morning show plug piece will make me think any different. His actions spoke in spades about his mentality.
