Sen. Chuck Schumer: "What the heck is the TSA doing?"

The TSA is delaying its controversial new knife rule.

The new rule would've allowed passengers to carry small knives on flights again starting April 25. But the TSA said it needs more input.

In the past, they've said allowing knives would help speed up security, and allow them to focus on more serious threats, such as explosives. But people against the new rule argue that it's dangerous.

No word yet on a possible new start date for the change.
