Brian, thanks for taking the time to write your article. I would like to clear a few items that are permitted to be carried on:

1. Tools, including screwdrivers, wrenches and pliers, that are seven inches or less in length.

2. Multi-tools that do not have a knife.

3. Sporks

4. Scissors - plastic or metal with blunt tips

5. Scissors - metal with pointed tips and blades shorter than four inches in length
