... is lifting the ban on Knives so they can focus more on the bigger threat of Bombs.

Ummm... last I checked it was not bombs that took down the planes on 9/11. It was terrorists... WITH BOX CUTTERS!

So, lets allow more knives. Good idea.

The TSA seriously needs to get their shit straight. Bunch of morons running that ship...

I am against them lifting the ban on knives. I personally carry a small pocket knife in the bottom of my purse. It was my father's many years ago. I use it to open letters, cut tape on boxes, cut ribbon when no scissors are close, and it has a bottle opener built in. But I would never dream of taking it on a plane, train or bus on a trip. And I don't want the person sitting near me to have one and suddenly go ballistic and start stabbing people. No there has been enough crazies in the news for the past decade or so that tells us that taking precautions is absolutely necessary. You can't even go to a movie or school or numerous other place in total safety any more.

Wow I hadn't heard that. We flew on 12 different planes last year and will most likely fly on 4 this year. That is scary they are lifting that ban. I know I for one will be more scared to fly.

No way. I don't think any of it should be allowed.
