    It's just confusing with the other things they don't allow. We're back on that slippery slope toward freedom.

    I didn't realize pocket knives were banned in the first place.

    My exact thought.

    Pocket knife = Ok
    Reasonably sized bottle of shampoo = You're undoubtedly a terrorist.

    Oh ya. I had a pair of pliers confiscated once.

    Pocket knives sound easier than box cutters. Not sure why they are going to allow this.

    Scissors with sharp points are allowed so long as they are less than 4" in length. What are scissors? Simply two knives bolted together.

    Screwdrivers less than 7 inches long are allowed. If I'm a nefarious evildoer, I could probably make that a weapon.

    The pocket knives in question are the non-locking blade variety with short blades. I'm not overly worried about this.
