If you're one of those people that likes to carry a small pocket knife because it becomes super handy a few times a month, but always forgets to take it out of your pocket before you go to the airport, we have good news for you!
On the other hand, if you're someone who's afraid of being stabbed with a small pocket knife while flying thousands of feet in the air, you should probably be sitting for this:
The TSA is going to start allowing knives less than 2.36 inches long and less than ½ inch at their widest points. Anything bigger, especially with locking blades, razor blades and box cutters will still be banned. In addition to this, people will be able to carry-on sports equipment like billiard cues, ski poles, hockey sticks, lacrosse sticks, and two or less golf clubs!
The TSA hasn't really explained why they've had the change of heart, but we assume they figure as long as they can continue to ignore the 4th amendment that they're still winning!
How does this make U guys feel?? We're not so sure! Seems like we're setting ourselves up for people who can't measure holding up the lines! This new rule goes into effect at the end of April!
