Passengers Soon to Be Allowed to Carry on Small Knives and Sports Equipment

On Tuesday, Transportation Security Administration administrator John Pistole announced at an airline industry meeting in New York that, starting next month, travelers will be able to carry on with them small knives and small souvenir baseball bats, golf clubs, and other sports equipment.  The new security policy will allow the U.S. policy to conform to international policy and it gives the TSA room to focus on bigger threats to security.


The announcement brought an immediate reaction form the unions that represent flight attendants and other airline workers, who argued that these items are dangerous if they are held by the wrong passenger.  Transport Workers Union Local 556 said the new policy is dangerous and short-sighted.  They said that while these items pose little threat to the pilots, the real threat is to the safety of the passengers and flight attendants.
