NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Some family members of Sept. 11 terror victims are angry over new flight-safety rules that will permit small knives on planes.
The head of the Transportation Security Administration said Tuesday that air passengers will now be allowed to carry folding knives with blades that are 2.36 inches or less.
The rules go into effect next month. They’ll also permit souvenir baseball bats, golf clubs and other sports equipment.
Sally Regenhard says she’s “flabbergasted” by the new rules. She lost her firefighter son at the World Trade Center.
