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.

Interesting. Here's the full interview.

I feel his intentions were 100% genuine. Let us be honest here,children tend to step way out of line; at times providing situations that question rearing techniques. I am the Reality Check, Tough Love type!

Intentions! I did not say utilizing a gun was right or wrong!
By the way guns actually make great teaching tools, depending on the compacity.

Actually I would use a .45-70 on a job such as this. Much greater 'splatter' effect.
