Resistance to TSA carry-on changes

You will still have to remove your shoes.
If you're carrying a bottle of water, forget it.
But a hockey stick will be OK.
So will a small pocket knife.
TSA's changes to what you will soon be able to carry through security and onto an airplane already finds stiff resistance.
The decision includes allowing ski poles, pool cues even golf clubs.
A TSA spokesman tells CNN these items "Don't pose a catastrophic threat to the operation of the aircraft."
Pending changes announced Tuesday, the TSA says, allow officers to better focus on high risk threats like explosives.
The flight attendant union coalition however says the change "...Will further endanger the lives of all flight attendants and the passengers..."
The federal law enforcement officers association agrees calling the decision "dangerous" and "ill advised."
