Let me get this straight … somebody finally does something sensible in regards to airport security — Canada is ignoring nail scissors, and instead checking for bombs — and a moron (MP John McCallum) thinks that this is going to present a danger on airplanes?
Mr. McCallum (and others of his ilk): a person cannot take over a plane with a pair of scissors. Can not. They will be overpowered by the crew and/or their fellow passengers and arrested when the plane lands.
In the rare event that a person can take over a plane with a pair of scissors, it is not because of the scissors. It is because they are Chuck Norris.
