This reversed, after the agency announced in March, that it would allow small folding knives as carryon items on flights; which sparked strong opposition from airlines, lawmakers and travelers.
The TSA claims the small knives don’t pose a catastrophic threat, while improvised explosive devices do. Allowing the small knives on planes would allow officers spend their time searching for components intended for other devices.
Passengers are relieved the decision has been turned.
So, we are now all safe from the small blades. Let’s make sure they catch the bigger stuff.
