TSA Changes Weapon Policy

EUGENE, Ore. — The TSA announced starting next month it will allow previously banned small knives, baseball bats and even golf clubs aboard flights.

The policy change is aimed at allowing the TSA to focus on larger safety threats.

“No, I am not particularly scared of knives being allowed. I think the vast majority of people out there are just doing their business. I think it is normal to carry a knife, I come from a farming background and I always carry a knife,” said Eugene Airport traveler Guy Alsentzer.

“There is no reason for allowing those. You can still do damage with them. It doesn’t make any sense,” said Eugene Airport traveler Linda Butler.

The new rule will go into effect on April 25. Travelers still won’t be able to take box cutters, razor blades and larger knives on the plane.
