Hot topics in the US today—gun control and gay marriage—have been tackled and surmounted by our fellow English-speaking humans on the other side of the globe.
Enjoy a few moments of levity, along with a healthy dose of common sense and logic, as Australians and New Zealanders manage these issues without losing their senses of humor or dignity.
