Nice to know that Congressman Swalwell is such a staunch supporter of security theater. No terrorist with a knife is ever going to make an airplane crash again. Hardened cockpit doors and wisened passengers mean this 'threat' is simply non-sensical.

Totally agree with Chris. No one can take ever over a plane with a Leatherman tool or pocket knife again; passengers will not let that happen. Wish Congressman Swalwell would find time for more important matters, such as the fiscal mess.

Well, looks like we got rid of a meatball (Pete Stark) and got another one (Swalwell).
The flight attendant union seems to be a bunch of meatballs as well. Most passengers are in much more danger from incompetent and (in the case of legacy airlines)feeble flight attendants than they are from someone with a pen knife. Passengers are also much more at risk from booze being dispensed on the plane (drunks and broken bottles as weapons).
