TSA to allow pocketknives again!! - March 6, 2013, 03:44 PM

Finally.

"On Tuesday, TSA Administrator John Pistole announced that small pocketknives and an array of sporting equipment -- which were banned from aircraft cabins in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks -- will be allowed in U.S. planes beginning April 25."

Air marshals, flight attendants want TSA to reconsider knife policy - CNN.com


I almost died laughing at this one:

"It's as if we didn't learn anything from 9/11," said George Randall Taylor, head of the air marshal unit of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA). "Flight attendants are going to be sitting ducks."

Watch for all the stabbings that are going to happen. Flying is going to be the most dangerous form of transportation before we know it.

I think I've accidentally taken at least 3 knives on planes while they were banned. TSA as a whole is a bunch of incompetent, useless BS.

I'm curious what the reasoning behind this is. Does this mean that razors, water bottles, and Leathermen will now be allowed? I'd much rather see those allowed than knives.

my buddy has worked at several major airports including Dulles, he said TSA is the most incompetent group of individuals he has ever encountered. Imagine the people from high school who did drugs rather than go to school, had kids at 13, sent to juvie then imagine them having less common sense than those kids in high school. Then you'll probably have a good idea of how stupid the TSA security guards are at some air ports.

go read the memo/pamphlet. They're allowing small, thin, non locking, non countoured grip knives. SO basically, swiss army knives

I love how people are freaking about this saying its a slippery slope to allowing actual weapons on planes.

But drone strikes on US citizens is different.
Bans on 30 round magazines are different.
Search and seizure for all electronic devices within 100 miles of the border are different.

I guess they forgot the slippery slope that got us to where we are. I flew back from Jamaica with a big ass machete as carry-on back in the day and no one cared in the least. Why should have they? Like the head of TSA said, with a ruler, a can of coke, and some tape one can make a razor sharp sword while on a plane now. All banning knives does is cost money and delay passengers.

The reality is that if someone wants you dead bad enough you're gonna be worm food.

I worked at the airport for awhile and its not the passengers you have to worry about. Its the ground support crew. I was on the flight line everyday with a assisted opening locking blade knife. It would have been nothing for me to take my Glock on the flight line and hand it off to any number of people boarding a plane.
