    What is the problem that the ban on pocketknives addresses today? Because it's no longer necessary to protect against flights being highjacked.

    It can somewhat reduce the risk of a flight attendant or other passenger being seriously injured. But how often does that happen, except as part of a highjacking, which, due to other measures, is now bound to fail?

    What reason is there to believe that seemingly random violent acts will become a problem on flights if the ban is lifted?
