No, I am realist about the facts that the laws the TSA are based on have been here for decades. You do not have constitutional rights at an airport. It has always been an exception. No where in teh original constitution does it mention that you have a right to privacy. Only amendments on specifics. You people are gun firing crazy without even know your basic facts.
In 1973 the 9th Circuit Court rules on U.S. vs Davis, 482 F.2d 893, 908, there are key pieces of wording that give the TSA its power to search essentially any way they choose to. The key wording in this ruling includes “noting that airport screenings are considered to be administrative searches because they are conducted as part of a general regulatory scheme, where the essential administrative purpose is to prevent the carrying of weapons or explosives aboard aircraft.”

My kid is flying next month, I have no problem with a pat down. See as a parent, I am quite capable of teaching him the difference between a good touch and a bad touch.
