TSA Administrator John Pistole invited controversy when he announced a couple of weeks ago that folding knives with blades up to 2.36 inches long and a half inch wide would be permitted as carry-on items.
Pistole said “we are unaware of a single incident involving these small knives on commercial aircraft.”
So no incidents of knives of planes? If I were at this hearing where Pistole was testifying before Congress, I would have yelled, “NO, DUH!”
Do you want to know why there are no incidents of knives on planes? It’s because the TSA banned knives on planes! No knives, no incidents.
Since 9/11, they have been taking away your pocket knife before you get on the plane! That’s why there are no incidents of knife violence on planes!
