Is the TSA's policy change—allowing small knives in passenger carry-ons—a bad decision?


The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced on March 5, 2013 that it will now allow passengers to bring small knives on airplanes in their carry-on bags. What do you think of this decision?

    Linda (Sunshine625),

    This was a *breaking news item* I saw online at approximately 12:00Noon Pacific time. I don't know if all news media outlets are aware of the item.

    I feel bad for the flight attendants, who have to worry about it often. I think it is strange that this new allowance is to make it easier for the TSA agents. Where are their priorities?!

    I just found out that Michigan is not allowing knives at its' airports. That goes to show you that each state can make their own decisions.

    That is one thing I find very strange, that they would not allow certain hygiene products over a certain size, and yet they would allow potentially dangerous small knives. It's inconsistent, I think.
