    In the latest episode of "Being Biden," the Vice President read letters sent to him by third graders from North Philadelphia.

    The letters expressed their views on gun violence. Biden says these kids understand because many of them have seen the impact of gun violence on city streets.

    Biden referenced one of his mother's sayings before he read the letters-- "Out of the mouths of babes come gems of wisdom."

    "I want to discuss gun violence with you, like why do people use guns and why do they kill people? Also, why don't people be kind to one another. I'm kind to everyone."
    -Damaris

    "I want to discuss with you why you want to stop gun violence. I think it's because you want less people passing away."
    -Camilla

    "You should close gun stores, that's my opinion."
    -Marilyn

    "I heard you take care of gun violence. Maybe no guns at all, but police can get safety guns. That would change the world."
    -Ishmael

    "You can go out on the stage and just say I want to stop using guns."
    -Jacob

    "Being Biden" is an audio series that gives people behind-the-scenes stories from the white House.
