What do you get when you cross a daughter with a penchant for Facebook and a father with a penchant for his gun? It’s a clip that seems straight out of a sitcom, but Tommy Jordan was dead serious when he pumped his daughter’s laptop full of bullets in February. But before that happened, Jordan was careful to explain to the camera why he was taking such an extreme step. As part of a seven-minute lead-in to the gun-vs.-laptop scene, he said his daughter Hannah had posted whiny messages on Facebook complaining about her household chores.
Skip to the last minute, and the talkie film turned into one of action: “That right there is your laptop,” he explains, turning the camera on the laptop, placed vulnerably in the grass. “This right here is my .45.” He then proceeded to unload his gun on the computer, sending shards of plastic flying around the yard. Something tells us he’s not buying her a new one.
