A Young Boy's Gun Proposal - Chocolate Bullets.

 “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” ― Charles M. Schulz

Just hearing the words 'gun control' these days is enough to make even the most seasoned politician cringe.

It has become a proverbial thorn in the side for this administration - who has tried their very best to come up with a solution which will satisfy both sides of the political fence.

But, can there ever be a reasonable solution? 

Enter 7-year old Myles from Milwaukee, Wisconsin who offered Vice President Joe Biden the following bit of advice - make the bullets out of chocolate, then no one will get hurt. 

To which the Vice President responded,

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
You're quite right, Mr. Biden (and young 7-year old Myles) - chocolate can often carry more power than a politician's words.
