To whom it may concern:
We, the undersigned, strongly protest your recent decision to allow knives of ANY size to be carried on to commercial airplanes. This is a very wrong-headed decision despite your stating that TSO's screening for possible security risk will be prohibited from either boarding the plane or carrying the knife on board. This appears to be an ineffective measure since all it will take is ONE error in the judgement of any TSO or group of TSO's for a major disaster (in the form of another disaster such as 9-11) to occur. If that was to happen, would you, as a federal agency, be prepared for the inevitable cascade of civil lawsuits that would be filed by the families of the victims of such a disaster, should it occur? And if criminal negligence was found to be involved, would you be prepared to face those charges?
We demand that this decision be reversed immediately. I am sure that the safety of passengers is of paramount concern, as it should be, but unless this decision is rescinded, the TSA will appear (rightfully so) to be uncaring about the safety of airline passengers in the United States, and this is not an image any public office can afford to exhibit.

People need to sign this petition if they are airline passengers of any kind, or have loved ones who frequently fly. The safety of our loved ones should trump ANY other concern regarding whether or not small knives, as proposed, should be allowed on airplanes, let alone any weapons at all.
