TSA Draw Criticism for New Policy That Would Allow Knives, Golf Clubs on Planes

The announcement by the Transportation Security Administration last week that knives and other prohibited items will be permitted in airline cabs has incensed some travelers, lawmakers, aviation professionals and TSA employees, CNN reports. 

“I am aware of the argument that anything can be made into a weapon, but knives make it easy,” Nikki Stern, who lost her husband in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, told CNN. “The rules are so enormously confusing for the passenger and so arbitrarily applied.”

The new rule would allow knives with blades 2.36 inches or shorter on airline cabins, but blades cannot be fixed or locked into place.

Passengers also will be permitted to carry sports equipment such as two golf clubs, toy bats, ski poles, hockey sticks and pool cues.

The rules are to go into effect April 25.
