Bullets made of chocolate? America's VP says the world would be a better place

“DEAR VICE PRESIDENT Biden, I have a great idea to help make our country safer, better and the best.”

Myles, a second-grader in Milwaukee, wanted to have his say in the gun control debate that is dividing the US and did so by penning a letter to Joe Biden.

“I think guns should shoot out chocolate bullets,” he wrote. “Then no one will get killed and no one will be sad.”

A simple wish. But one that the VP took time to respond to with a rare hand-written note.

“I really like your idea,” he told the seven-year-old. “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.”

It was signed Joe Biden.
