Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the 9/11 hijackers supposedly use box-cutters (aka – small knives) to commandeer the airplanes?
So if it’s okay again to bring small knives on a plane then why not get rid of all the extra extreme safety measures that have been brought in since???
Think of it this way; say you stepped on a rake in your yard and it flipped up and broke your nose. So to make the yard safer, you ban not only rakes but shovels, lawn chairs, bicycles, plants, trees, and grass. You are able to go many years and manage to not break your nose again.
Since the yard has been safe all these years, you decide, “What the heck, I’m going to allow rakes again.” But you still outlaw all the other items that never broke your nose in the first place. What am I missing here?
