TSA Administrator John Pistole has announced a change to the Prohibited Items List. Starting April 25 of this year, passengers can now include in their carry-on luggage some previously banned items such as small knives and bats. Pilot and air marshal unions have come out against the relaxation of the TSA's ban on sharp objects. Ross Reynolds talks with airline workers and frequent fliers about their thoughts on the TSA announcement.
