The White House is reportedly finalizing a new executive action regarding gun control measures, though Press Secretary Josh Earnest refused to elaborate on the timeline to issue unilateral proposals. Of course anything President Obama decides to do will most likely set up a major battle with Republicans in Congress and gun rights groups. Meanwhile, in Connecticut, where 20 children and six educators were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, gov. Dannel Malloy proposed his executive order capacity to ban gun sales to those on federal no-fly lists. That would make it the first such state to enact such a restriction, but first they need to get the no-fly list from the federal government.

Hoverboards are the hot toy ticket this year. But if they’re on your holiday wish list, you might be disappointed: Delta Air Lines is keeping them grounded. The airline is banning the “self-balancing personal transportation devices” in carry-on and checked baggage. They say the “poorly labeled,” powerful lithium-ion batteries powering them — often exceeding government limits for being aboard aircraft — pose a safety risk. Delta’s ban takes effect Friday, with Jet Blue also joining in. And with word that more than a dozen airlines around the world have stopped accepting bulk shipments of those lithium-ion batteries, hoverboard manufacturers may have to wait on assembling them until after the holidays.
