We are living in the age of heightened security. The Transportation Security Administration, or TSA for short, is an agency of the U.S. government that exists as the authority over public travel in the United States. With the rise in terrorism in recent years, specifically in air travel attacks, the TSA has increased man power and regulations. The TSA is responsible for creating laws based around air travel. They determine what you can and cannot fly with on flights leaving from and to the United States. Increased regulations have made way less freedom in packing for travel. Some things that were permitted before are no longer allowed. The TSA takes effort to make it very clear what you can and cannot bring on an aircraft. Despite their best efforts they are constantly confiscating forbidden articles from oblivious and sneaky people. You will not believe the things that they find.
