But apparently, it wasn't something he bought, according to bart_calendar.

The father's actual implementation of the firearm was done well. He fired at the ground to reduce the chance of the bullet hitting someone else, and kept control of the gun as he was shooting. But his actual use of it, using it to fire on something of his daughter's, was not a responsible use of a weapon. In doing so, he equated a punishment to the destruction of property with a lethal weapon.

To say nothing of the comments on the damn video. I've seen enough disgusting comments about using the gun on her next - if nothing else, even if the family is okay with what happened, that video normalizes the use of a weapon in family disputes, and the comments can give an abuser the assurance that, if they chooses to use force on his or her family, there are people out there who support that decision.
