    I knew the question would come about Australia gun laws. Just to point out: The population of Australia is about 24 million. The population of the USA is 324 million. The land area of Australia is 2.97 million square miles. USA = 3.5 million square miles.

    I thought the Australian Prime Minister handled the question quite well. The reporter asked him if he tried to persuade the President to change our gun laws. He wisely pointed out that we have a Constitutional amendment that makes the situation very different here.
