Not that I'm defending the overly protective measures here but..
How do you stand against this on constitutional grounds when the constitution doesn't guarantee you the right to to fly?
It guarantees you the right to be secure in your person and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. It doesn't specify that this right is suspended at airports, in the same way it doesn't SPECIFY the "right to fly".

Yes it does give you the constitutional right to fly. Know why? Because it protects the right to FREE TRAVEL. And that includes ALL FORMS OF TRAVEL, flying included.
So you now claim that people are allowed to travel for free on any airline, anywhere.
So according to you they are also allowed to travel for free on buses, trains, and also you cannot refuse to give them a ride in your car whenever and to wherever they want to go....
