If you’ve been living under a rock, you probably don’t know that there is a massive debate happening in the United States right now surrounding gun control following yet another mass shooting, this time at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last December.
The Daily Show, a US TV show hosted by Jon Stewart, has recently shown a three part series on how Australia has dealt with gun control since then Australian Prime Minister, John Howard introduced a ban on automatic and semi automatic weapons after the Port Arthur tragedy in Tasmania in 1996.
By cleverly using satire to get his point cross, John Oliver makes a pretty convincing argument in favour of gun control.
Take a look at the three video’s (click on the links) and tell me if you agree or disagree with gun control reform in the United States. If you disagree, you better have a pretty good argument and waving the US 2nd Amendment in my face is not it.

When the movie, Hairspray was released in 2007, it became an instant hit at our place.
The Soundtrack was on high rotation in my car and the only music we could listen to when my kids were in the car, was Hairspray. My then 3 year old daughter, Lara, absolutely loved it.
In this footage I shot on the way to daycare one morning, Lara sang the opening song, “Good Morning Baltimore”.
Stick with it. The last minute is the best.
I came across this clip today of this bear in a zoo doing some pretty amazing things with a stick. He is known as the Kung Fu Bear and this footage is real as you can tell by the second, unedited video clip.
It is one of the funniest video’s I have ever seen. I love it!
Here’s the unedited version.
