Didn't it like bleed gel-like stuff? I thought that was what was inside of LCDs because of when you touch the screen.

There nothing you can do. If the LCD is cracked it's cracked, you can't do another past replacing the monitor itself.

I would make my brother pay for the damn thing if that's an option.

No, my older brother is cool. And i dont care i just dont want my dad to find out, because he bought me the monitor. Well i can use other monitors because i have like 3 more in my garage but they are not flat panel. And yes the gel like stuff came out but there is a little thin rubbery coating ver the monitor and the gun didnt go through it, it expanded it and hit the screen inside.
