New Transportation Security Administration regulations expand the list of items allowed onboard, from golf clubs to pocket knives, and the idea isn't sitting well with some.

David Mattingly has more. 

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.

The TSA's changes to what you will be able to carry through secutity and onto an airplace finds stiff resistance.

"If some type of argument could escalate. Guess what if someone pulls out a knife.? I'm here I have to defend myself and make sure all the other passengers are safe," says Karen James, a flight attendant.

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, TSA says, allow officers to better focus on high risk threats like explosives.
But travelers have their own ideas.

One family is on their way home to Chicago from Disneyland.

"I'd actually prefer they change the rule on the liquids because I've lost too many things. In fact on the way here they took... I had a little jar of peanut butter and I had no idea that counted as a liquid. I'd actually rather see them change the rules on that than small knives and golf clubs," says air traveler Perry Shorris.

Another man carries a pocket knife all the time, except when he's flying.

"I would prefer that they stay off airplanes," says air traveler Kory Beidler.

One couple, however, isn't worried.

"I guess I want the stewardesses to carry knives or something you know to protect us if needed," says air traveler Beth Hanson.

"I know we have marshals on the airplanes that take care of us," says air traveler Brad Henson.

The Flight Attendant Union Coalitikon 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."
