Biden says consensus emerging on gun safety

• Associated Press

Biden said that while he had not finalized his recommendations, a consensus was emerging over banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, as well as tightening background checks.

Some of those measures are likely to face opposition from some pro-gun groups, most notably the powerful National Rifle Association. A representative from the NRA was scheduled to meet with Biden Thursday afternoon.

Obama, spurred by the horrific shooting of school children in Newtown, Conn., appointed Biden to lead a task force on preventing gun violence. He set a late January deadline for the group's recommendations, which he pledged to act on swiftly.

Yes, I've long found a consensus becomes very prominant and loud when you hear only in one ear while pressing the other to a brick wall.

This was a done-deal long before the doors were unlocked to the conference room.
