(WTMJ) It may not be unusual for schoolchildren to write to the president or vice president, but one Wisconsin boy got an unexpected response.
Myles Nelson, a 7-year-old second-grade student at Milwaukee's Downtown Montessori Academy wrote a letter to Vice President Joe Biden and other officials a few months ago with a simple idea for making the world safer.
"I think guns should shoot out chocolate bullets," Myles wrote to the vice president. "Then no one will get killed and no one will be sad."
Vice President Biden wrote back: "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.
Myles came up with the idea shortly after the school schootings in Sandy Hook.
His teachers helped him send letters to President Obama, Vice President Biden and Wisconsin Congresswoman Gwen Moore.
So far he has gotten responses from Congresswoman Moore and the vice president.
