Knives to be allowed on airplanes

Jump to last reply

The TSA has issued a press release to the effect that knives and other previously prohibited potential weapons will be allowed in the cabin, effective April 25. I am not making this up. See their info at http://tinyurl.com/bchbaqg.

Flight attendants, pilots, and air marshals have protested loudly. A White House petition has been drafted. The petition is available on the White House web site but is easily accessed using the URL www.noknivesonplanes.com. Sarah Nelson, VP of the flight attendants union, was on Fox News Sunday morning and gave out this URL. This URL immediately redirects to the official petition. You must register and then you can sign it. As of this evening there were 22,000 signatures with about 77,000 more needed by April 5. I don't know exactly how this works but I registered and signed.

Please sign and pass this information on to your traveling friends, and everybody. The TSA has handed the keys to the city gates to the barbarians. Whose side are they on?
