Knives Work Their Way Back Onboard Planes [POLL]

The Transportation Safety Association announced this past Tuesday that starting on April 25th, it will allow small pocket knives and certain sporting goods on planes for the first time in more than a decade. Passengers flying on U.S. flights will be allowed to carry pocket knives with blades of less than six centimeters. Razor blades and box cutters, like those used in the 9/11 attacks will continue to be banned.

Passengers can also bring onboard up to two golf clubs, ski poles, and sticks used for hockey, lacrosse, and billiards. However, baseball bats will continue to be banned.

The move comes following a recommendation by a TSA working group that such items are not a security threat. However, the Flight Attendants Union Coalition condemned the policy change, calling it, ”poor and shortsighted.”

How do you feel about this?  Take our poll!
