NEW YORK (PIX11)– Senator Chuck Schumer wants to keep small knives off of airplanes.

Today he called on the TSA to reverse its decision allowing passengers to carry knives, baseball bats, golf clubs and other small potential weapons.

He says the new rule could put passengers, flight attendants and pilots in danger.

And simply does not make any sense.

Schumer also called out the security at Newark Airport for allowing an undercover agent to get through security with a fake bomb in his pants.

He believes the new rules will distract TSA agents from doing their jobs.
