There are very strict rules under which you can't bring certain things into the cabin (as cabin baggage), or even to carry them in the Luggage. They are all aimed at the safety of passengers, and must be implemented by all passengers without question. It is useless to argue or to persuade employees of the security control at the airport, if they found something forbidden in your baggage or carry-on baggage. You just have to remove the prohibited item and throw it away in a special container, which are installed in every airport, and this is the best. For the carriage of prohibited items like contraband, you can still get in trouble with the law, but that's another story.

Checking hand baggage is performed later when the boarding passes and documents you go to the boarding area (sending). But don't confuse, control, security and customs control are two different things.
