Ah, I figured if it was from Wisconsin it'd be either Milwaukee or Madison.

Nice to know the schools are spending time indoctrinating children to fuss about guns when they should be learning academics.

But, if you are breeding a generation of welfare check taking voting livestock I suppose it's OK.

I don't care for the Obama Admin but we shouldn't bash any politician for a personal interaction with a child.

So long as it's not that kind of interaction with a child IYKWIM.

The only thing that can stop a bad guy with chocolate bullets is a good guy with a peanut-butter grenade.

A little boy in Cuba once wrote a letter to FDR asking him to send him a $10 American banknote because he and his friends had never seen one. Nice touch, that detail. Clearly a lad with a future ahead of him.

And the name of that little boy was Fidel Castro.

If FDR had sent Fidel Castro a $10 bill when he asked for one, Castro would have been a third baseman for the Chicago Cubs (his alma mater is the University of Chicago).

I'm ok with this as long as the chocolate gets hot enough as it exits the gun to burn human flesh away.

My post in the redlit thread on this:

The problem with chocolate bullets are as follows:

1. They aren't dense enough.  That translates into higher muzzle velocities but because of the poor sectional density they would lose velocity very quickly.

2. Lack of material cohesion compared to normal bullet materials:
      a. A bullet has to stay together to be effective against all but the smallest, lightest targets.
      b. A bullet without the necessary integrity will 'trip' over any rifling, making it wildly inaccurate
      c. The explosive force necessary to propel a bullet is likely to completely destroy a chocolate bullet.
      d. If the shock didn't do it, the temperature would melt the chocolate bullet.

Having said that, a chocolate bullet would make the "catching a bullet in the mouth" trick a whole lot tastier.

Academics!  They should be learning academics, people.  Not fussing about guns.  You hear me?  Academics!

What about chocolate shotgun shells? Put a chunk of Hershey's in there, but expect it to act like bird shot. Maybe use peanut butter for the wadding.

The chocolate is merely the jacket. You didn't take into account the density of the nougat center.  Reloaders could also use a hard caramel center for the bullet.

I was wondering about the CSI episode with the meat bullet, but Mythbusters have got it covered:

I'm going to guess that if frozen hamburger can't hold it together long enough to cause injury, then chocolate wouldn't either.

The Bootstrapy Resisty called.

They've cancelled your farm subsidies.

They've cancelled your fossil fuel "exploration and development" tax credits.

They've cancelled the power of corporations to collect taxes from consumers and then just keep the money.

They've cancelled your protectionist barriers to free trade and free movement of workers, resources and money..

They've cancelled your cut-price leases on the one third of the land in the USA that belongs to the Government and theoretically the American People.

They've cancelled the Patriot Acts, the dronocracy, and the TSA, like Obama should have done by executive degree on day one of his One Hundred Days.

And some guy with a hippy beard and a whip drove your lobbyists out of the taxpayer-financed paid halls of Congress saying you've made his Father's House into a Den of Thieves.

In other words, you can kiss your Red State asses good bye. The Democrats have decided not to throw buckets of money at the rich any more. They need those buckets of money to restore the dying American Middle Class.

The jig is up, self-styled conservatives. You've been caught in the Gubbermint money trough with you heels barely above the credit line.

THE TAXPAYER'S MONEY. IT IS NOT YOURS.

One, because you stopped paying your far share years ago, and two, it should go to the people who pay, not the players who play.

P.S. The Government has figured out that it is cheaper to let banks that are too big to fail, fail, and just give the money back to the depositors, small businesses, etc. so they can go to another conveniently located bank instead.

***

And then Bootstrapy McScrooge Duck woke up and it was all a horrible nightmare, except that J.R. Ewing was still dead. So he says to his wife: "Honey, wake up, you won't believe the dream I just had" and she says: it wasn't a dream, America was a dream. A dream that went bad because it was founded by a bunch of needy-greedy Whigs and crypto-Tories. It was sick unto death from the moment of conception by those who cast envious and greedy eyes on the lands guaranteed to the native peoples by Jay's Treaty. It was sick unto death from the moment Philadelphia lawyers joined with Patroons, Southern Gentry and Boston Patricians to evade paying the cost of the French and Indian Wars after trying to fob it off on the London and Provincial taxpayers in the Metropolis.

It was dead from the first twinkling of New World Gold and Silver in the eyes of Cortèz.

Come to think of it, a Chocolate Lobby might be the only thing powerful enough to take down the NRA.
 
2013-05-14 11:04:25 AM  
The proposal is absurd and without merit. That the Vice President would reply to it demonstrates an abdication of his responsibilities. Suggesting that ammunition be manufactured from chocolate contributes nothing meaningful to any discussion when the suggestion includes no specific explanation of whether milk chocolate, white chocolate or dark chocolate will be used.

Depends:  If the class assignment was "Let's write a letter to the Whitehouse about something that concerns us", and the kid picked guns then meh.  If the assignment was "Guns are bad, let's write the President a letter telling him how to fix the problem." then, yeah, I agree with your sentiment.

They should try using Montreal steak seasoning in the hamburger, and they should fire it at my open mouth.

Also, mix in some hickory sawdust with the gunpowder.
