Open Thread: Should Small Pocketknives Be Permitted On Board Planes?
The TSA just relaxed the rules on what is permitted on board planes. Now we are allowed to bring small pocket knives and some sporting equipment such as ski poles or lacrosse sticks. Are you in favor of the TSA's decision to allow small pocket knives on board? Do you think this makes flyers safer? Or do you think this is riskier? The Coalition of Flight Attendant Unions and George Randall Taylor, head of the air marshal unit of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, have spoken out against this new policy, specifically against allowing small knives on board during flights.
