They include a prohibition on bringing baggage aboard the cabin of any flight bound for the United States, with certain exceptions:
Medication or medical devices, including crutches, canes, walkers and containers carrying life-sustaining items.
Items for care of infants.
Diplomatic or consular bags.
Other special needs items.
I've seen people wheeling their overnight bag, a computer bag, a large coat, and a shopping bag, stuffing them in any overhead bin they please. Two carry-on items, nitwits.
Flying, even short distances, is time consuming. Plan accordingly, pack accordingly and you'll be fine.
On a side note -- for those of you who never have to fly through LAX, you really don't know what a mismanaged airport and total inconvenience is. It is by far the worst run airport in the country.
TSA lost my vote of confidence when they started pulling little white girls who couldn't be over 100 lbs into the secondary line for pat downs and chemical wipes.
Seriously. That girl doesn't even look like she could carry her own luggage.
TSA is a joke.

The thing that some folks don't see, is that the time they spend cavity serching Aunt Bea, two terrorists can slip right on through with their exploding under-roos.
But, hey, who said common sense had to come into it?
