Knives Will Be Allowed On Planes

I just traveled thru airports in Omaha, Phoenix and Maui. Going past the security check points is challenging to say the least. I had a wrist watch set off an alarm.

But soon you can walk on thru with a knife. A report just came out of the change.

The Transportation Security Administration announced Tuesday that U.S. airline passengers will soon be allowed to carry small knives in their carry-on bags, a move that prompted swift condemnation from a flight attendants union.

FOX News reports that the union for Southwest Airlines flight attendants called the decision ‘dangerous’ and ‘designed to make the lives of TSA staff easier, but not make flights safer.’ The changes were made public by TSA Administrator John Pistole during an aviation conference in New York.

Starting April 25, passengers going through U.S. airports can bring on board Swiss Army-type knives, specifically, ones with blades no longer than 2.36 inches. This marks the first time such knives have been allowed on board since security was heavily increased in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Among the other items also allowed on board are lacrosse sticks, ski poles and small, souvenir baseball bats.
