Did you read the part that said they *may* be doing this, and are only currently studying the proposal? my guess is they will reallow knives and throwing stars for our ninja friends but still check us pilots.
I don't know about this. Sounds like a bad idea. I mean they only give us airplanes that cost several million dollar to fly with real, live people on board. Sounds like they are going out on a limb here. I may have a pocket knife or something just as dangerous.
I'm going to contact my union rep about this to see if I can get this stopped before they get out of control over there. Next thing you know, common sense may break out, then we'd all be screwed.
