Gases, torches, aerosols, and our own water, and other flammable objects are not permitted on airplanes. ( .They are not permitted because they could blow up or start a fire on the plane. And also, our water that we bring is not permitted because someone could use it to make a bomb. (News) Also, certain chemical are not allowed on the plane either because people could be allergic to them or because people could make bombs with them. Explosives are also not permitted. I think that no weapons should be allowed on an airplane, because somebody could use those weapons in other places, to harm other people. I think that security guards should check everybody, even if they walk through the scanner and nothing comes up.
