    I think Jerry Springer would be a better format for it!

    He seems like a good guy with a good head on his shoulders and it seems that he picked NBC over all of the other networks for a reason. He started a blog after the incident and I have to say that I am a fan. This does have the potential to be a good thing. As gun rights advocates we have been winning quite a bit lately and I also hope that this turns out to be a positive thing. Here is his blog entry about the show.

    I have problems believing they were laughing about it soon after. (Quote form daughter). But every family is different. If it really worked then okee dokee. Still think it was dum. His own words were that they tried it the mature way but that didn't work so they had to bring it down to her level (paraphrasing). But hey, folks might disagree how I discipline my kid, oh wait, nobody knows. We keep it in the family.

    He posted this video on you tube and face book. Now, he continues to keep the entire issue open for all the public to respond. It would seem that he likes the attention and all the emails he receives. Now, he's on television.

    It seems like his motives are more than disciplining his daughter. He also saved the hard drive to be inserted into her NEW laptop she'll be receiving.

    I missed that part. So he is getting her another lap top? That is another good parenting skill. Consistencey. Did he not say she was not getting another one until she got to college in the You Tube video. Me thinks he just wants attention and he needs parenting.

    I see it as the unsafe and unnecesary discharge of a firearm.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I was a bit dissapointed with the Thread title. He didn't actually shoot the Today show? The Today show didn't publicly humiliate him after being warned?

    He's doing enough of that for himself, I guess.
