    The work of the task force will be to solidify public consensus.  That's why Biden, who is personally popular, and who was on the Judiciary Committee when the assault weapons ban was passed in 1994, is heading the committee.  That will move the "Overton window" in the right direction, allowing what might have seemed impossible a year ago.
