THE QUOTE

"If we had guns that shot chocolate, not only would our country be safer, it would be happier. People love chocolate." —Joe Biden, April 30, 2013.

THE BACKGROUND

A Milwaukee second-grader recently wrote to Joe Biden with an idea to limit gun violence. "Dear Vice President Biden, I have a great idea to help make our country safer, better and the best," Myles, a student at Downtown Montessori Academy, proposed. "I think guns should shoot out chocolate bullets. Then no one will get killed and no one will be sad."

Biden wrote back, endorsing the concept. "I really like your idea," Biden's note reads. "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."

TRUTH-BOMB

Biden's reasoning seems flawed here. People like eating chocolate, not getting shot with it. A chocolate bullet, though admittedly less lethal than standard ammunition, would probably still hurt like a mofo. We deem Biden's statement HALF TRUE.
