TSA Administrator John S. Pistole made the decision to start allowing the following items in carry-on bags beginning April 25th: [April 1st being taken]
- Small Pocket Knives – Small knives with non-locking blades smaller than 2.36 inches and less than 1/2 inch in width will be permitted
- Small Novelty Bats and Toy Bats
- Ski Poles
- Hockey Sticks
- Lacrosse Sticks
- Billiard Cues
- Golf Clubs (Limit Two) [Which almost implies there are no limits on the other items]
But wait, that's not even the best part!
Pool Cues! What's every pool hall brawler's favorite weapon? No, other than the bartender's sawed off shotgun. That's right, pool sticks, pool cues, billiard cues. They come in take down form with oh so cool looking carrying cases. And you can order them extra heavy. Just the thing to put the El Kabong to the fellow trying to light that fuse coming out of his pants.
