Biden Endorses Bullets Made Of Chocolate In Letter To 7-Year-Old


A Milwaukee second-grader at Downtown Montessori Academy wrote to Vice President Joe Biden suggesting that if guns shot chocolate bullets, no one would get hurt. 

On Monday, the boy received a hand-written response, the Associated Press reported, in which Biden agrees that chocolate bullets would probably solve a whole lot.

The letter read:

Dear Myles,

I am sorry it took me so very long to respond to your letter. I really like your idea. If we had guns that shot chocolate, not only would our country be safer, it would be happier. People love chocolate. 

You are a good boy,

Joe Biden
