Hockey sticks and golf clubs are no longer weapons – if you’re flying

A friend on mine would often marvel at airport security.

‘Howcome,’ he’d ask.

*I can’t bring fluids larger than a certain amount through airport security, only to then be allowed to buy all the ingredients that make up a Molotov-cocktail on the other side? And even in a duty free area?’

Well, I can’t say I know for sure if he’s right or wrong there, but I do know that some aspects of airport security are slightly nonsensical.

Take a recent decision by the Transport Security Administration (TSA), for example.

The TSA has decided that certain things that were previously not allowed as carry-on luggage are now acceptable.

Some of the items now allowed include hockey sticks, pocket knives, billiard cues and golf clubs.

Now I don’t know much about golf, but I’m pretty sure that a golf club can be used as a weapon.

Good thing the TSA has decided to limet the number you can take onboard to two per person, then…..
