    I think it is both good and bad because passengers need something to protect them if anything happens. It bad because it would start a serious problem and someone might get hurt. The people would take advantage of the privilege and it would be chaos.

    In my opinion I think that TSA should and should not allow pocket knives. The reason I said they should because some people need to protect themselves for the bad citizens in this world and the reason I say no because really I don’t think it is no reason for a pocket knife on a aircraft anyway because it is really not a lot of trouble that can be done in a aircraft, unless it is a crazy and uncivilized citizen that stabbed or injury citizen for no reason.

    I feel that this is a good idea because sometimes children ride on airplanes by themselves and a grown person might see them alone and might try to harm them in someway but if the child has a knife then they can have self-defense.

    I think that this is a good and bad idea. A good idea because this pocket knife could be used for protection and if something goes wrong the pocket knife could be useful. A bad idea because it could be used for killing or something that deals with danger and violence. So my opinion is half and half.

    The TSA must be out of there minds! No way should TSA allow pocket knives on aircraft unless they want a bloodbath crisis. Its so many crazies in the world. This is a bad idea people from other places in the world might get handy with the pocket knives and have a field day with it on Innocent people.

    I think that they shouldn’t allow pocket knives because they are harmful to many people.

  7. March 15th, 2013 at 12:15 PM      Reply Ayanna Says:

    I think it is not a good idea because someone would pull the knife out and try to stab someone.

  8. March 15th, 2013 at 12:20 PM      Reply Ariane Says:

    I think that it is a good and bad idea. Bad news about it is someone crazy can be on the plane and just try to stab the people on the plane so I think this is a bad idea. The good news about it is, just in case this happen you can be prepared for it. That’s what I think.

    I think people who wants to carry pocket knives on a plan are crazy because what if a little kid gets a hold of it and decides to play with it and injury their self and then what happens to the plan they end up getting sewed because they let this random person bring a pocket knives. also for all we know this person could be serial killer or an x con from prison and on a hunt to kill all these people as soon as the plane take off. Well if I were in charge of that company I would in force the laws or even ask citizen how they fill about the pocket knife bring on to the plane.

    I think the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is making a bad idea to let people to bring pocket knives on the aircraft because,it very unsafe to others and that person might stab someone and stab them in the wrong place and they might die. And thats why it not a good idea to allow people to bring pocket knives on the aircaft

  11. March 15th, 2013 at 12:22 PM      Reply Tameesha Says:

    I think it is a very bad idea because, if someone tries to kill someone else, it will harm other people and it is bad. I understand why they say that because some people do crazy things and do slick things, but they want to be safe. I Tameesha think it is wrong.

  12. March 15th, 2013 at 12:24 PM      Reply gumdrop Says:

    it is not a good idea to bring pocket knives because they can kill people with it.

  13. March 15th, 2013 at 12:25 PM      Reply kiera Says:

    i think this i not a good idea because anybody can see someone that they don’t like and use their pocket knives. It very unsafe to others and that person might stab someone in the wrong place and they might die.

  14. March 15th, 2013 at 12:27 PM      Reply Mady Says:

    No, it’s not a good idea because some folks usually have pocket knives and they are probably crazy in the mind and you don’t know what will happen.

  15. March 15th, 2013 at 1:49 PM      Reply Sidney Hardeman Says:

    I think this is a bad idea because their could be mentaly ill people on the plane. They could try to kill, cut, or stabe someone on the plane. People could be arguing on the plane and someone could pull out a pocket knife. Pocket knives should not be allowed because their could be kids on the plane and it is unsafe for weapons to be around them.

  16. March 15th, 2013 at 1:56 PM      Reply Kayla Says:

    I think this is a bad idea because you cant look at someone and say that they are crazy. But I think this is a bad idea cause, if people are allowed to bring knives on the aircraft, the their would be no peace at all. That is because everyone has a problem. Thats only if people look at someone wrong then there would be a fight. So to me this a bad idea for people to bring knives on the aircraft.

  17. March 15th, 2013 at 1:57 PM      Reply Dekhala Says:

    I say yes and no. I say no because some people are crazy and might try to kill somebody. I say yes because people need to protect themselves so nothing wouldn’t happen.

  18. March 15th, 2013 at 1:58 PM      Reply iesha bryant Says:

    No this is not a good idea because with a pocket knife you can do anything to hurt someone or kill them. Also I would like to say “at first you could not bring any type or form of a weapon onto a plane.” Now you’re trying to see if it’s safe this is dumb right crazy. So I say “no weapons period or items that are 8 oz or more.” I rather have snakes that’s just me.

  19. March 15th, 2013 at 2:00 PM      Reply Twin A Says:

    I think it’s a bad idea to allow people to bring pocket knives on aircraft. It’s already safe to be on the aircraft, so why bring weapons? People on the plane probably be bipolar, then get mad and kill someone. I just think the whole idea dumb.

  20. March 15th, 2013 at 2:07 PM      Reply shanya Says:

    No because they can be having a problem with somebody and that person on the plane and kill somebody. Also somebody might make that person mad and she or he might just get up and kill them.
    Also you should never be able to carry a weapon in a place like that anyway because everybody goes to the airport. At the airport you don’t need safety because it’s already provided. Police and metal detectors. What else do you need at the airport? You don’t need extra weapons because its only gone cause death,fearness,pain and headaches because people are going to be worried if they are going to make it off the plane safe and sound. Also once you in the air that’s it.

  21. March 15th, 2013 at 2:11 PM      Reply Mekayla Says:

    I think it is a bad idea because people will take advantage of using weapons. Also there can be crazy people on the plane that will do anything to harm the passengers on there.

  22. March 15th, 2013 at 2:19 PM      Reply alexis turner Says:

    No, because someone can really get hurt and a least if a crazy person is on the plane you will not get kill because nobody will have a pocket knife. My teacher pointed out something good. She said a man said why I cannot bring my shampoo but I can a pocketknife crazy right.

  23. March 15th, 2013 at 3:01 PM      Reply Tonisha Says:

    I don’t think it’s a good idea because if they can’t let 12 ounces of shampoo go on the airplane, neither should knives. Also I think that women should only be allowed to bring pocket knife’s because they need to be the most protected because some women are defenseless and men are more of fighter and can protect themselves.

  24. March 15th, 2013 at 3:13 PM      Reply Isis Dave Says:

    No I do not think allowing pocket knives on aircraft is a good idea because people can still get harmed, and it is not fair if people are allowed to bring knives on aircraft but not shampoo.

  25. March 15th, 2013 at 3:22 PM      Reply shemika Says:

    No its not good because you dont know what might happened.And if somthing pop off they just going to bring out a knife and start cutting people and thats not good because you might get life in jail.

  26. March 15th, 2013 at 3:25 PM      Reply ariel Says:

    I think it is not a good idea to bring a pocket knife on the plane because you never know who will get hurt or killed and there is no police or help on the plane just incase someone gets hurt or killed.

  27. March 15th, 2013 at 3:36 PM      Reply syntoria Says:

    Well I say no then I say yes. I say no because there are pilot people be on the airplane and they won’t let you get hurt. But I say yes because you don’t know what people can have but I thank yes you should have one but I suggest that you don’t use it because people are crazy. I also say no because that’s not safe because you are taking away some one’s life over stupid stuff so I say yes and no.

  28. March 15th, 2013 at 3:38 PM      Reply Bennecia Says:

    No I don’t think it’s right to let them carry pocket knives because if we can’t bring a body of shampoo on the plane, then they can’t carry pocket knives.
