With all the heated discussions going back and forth over gun control, Jim thought it would be nice to offer a funny antidote to lighten things up a little.

Ronnie DelBacco from Easton, PA wrote a Woody Allen-esque editorial piece comparing the use of pencils to gun control.

DelBacco's op-ed piece discusses taking "rapid-fire automatic pencils" out of the hands of children, as well as the prevention of random pencils laying around the house.

It is a quite humorous piece and if nothing else, will give you a break for a little while.
