Dad Shoots at Teen Daughter's Boyfriend When He Catches Them Fooling Around

by Lindsay Mannering

teen signThere's probably not one parent in America who can't relate to 50-year-old Jamshid Ebrahimi. When he walked in the door of his Hillsboro, Oregon home to find his 14-year-old daughter partially clothed with a teenage boy, he kind of lost his mind. The enraged father grabbed a handgun and fired it into the floor. As the teenage boy fled, he fired another round into the air outside as the kid hauled it over a fence.

Now, the protective dad is under three years probation for reckless gun use. But if you ask him, he might say his crime was worth the punishment.

Listen -- fooling around with a gun is never a smart move. I mean, it's all fun and games until part of a teenager's foot is shot off. Still, I can't help but sympathize with the dad here. He saw red and had to do something to stop the madness.

Yes, a stern talking-to and a call to the boy's parents would have certainly sufficed, but in the heat of the moment, this father's cooler head did not prevail.

And hey, this way you can be sure that those kids learned a lesson. When dad gets out a deadly weapon, you know he's serious. Teens are really hard to get through to and, no, his fatal force is not justifiable, but you can't help but feel where Ebrahimi is coming from.

His daughter can rest assured that this won't happen again, though. Even though I'm sure she'd never dare fool around with a boy again in her father's home, the court has now forbidden Ebrahimi from owning a gun.

That boy lucked out.

What would you do if you caught your teen in this position?

yelled get dressed and see me in the kitchen ! Then tell them just how uncool that was to walk into. We would be having many many talks about BC. How performing adult acts when you are a child is pretty damn stupid.

This is the stereotypical senario that tons of country songs were written about.... dad cleaning his gun on the porch when a male suiter comes for his daughter.  

This dad's problem was that he was in the wrong state for his actions.

I would be very upset and disappointed.  I most likely wouldn't pull a gun though.  Now my Dh I can't vouch for lol.  We live in East Texas and I am sure some sort of this situation like in the article has played out plenty of times.

I would go Momma Bear ballistic on both their butts. Probably more so on the boy until he was gone then my girl would get it big time. I do have guns in my house but to get to them would give me too much time to calm down.

Quoting boys2men2soon:

Yeah, same here.

But sometimes I'm glad we don't have a daughter. My husband would be so overprotective if we did. I could see him going ballistic if we had a daughter in the situation described in the article, and I would just have to pray that it wouldn't involve a gun.

we don't own a gun so that wouldnt happen.  I do have swords on display on my walls that I may possibly grab one but more to scare the boy than anything else.   dH woudl probably put the kids head thru a wall
