I've heard the purpose of the Constitution is to protect us from the government. Surveillance on all citizens is clearly Constitutional.
The starting of a police state by eliminating the 4th amendment isn't the solution.
"Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither. He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security. He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither. "
Old uncle Ben Franklin had a pretty clear stance on the matter but I guess people didn't have the same issue like 200 years ago. With all that's happening in the US people are running out of options.

It seems to me that people are so wild and mixed up. Not very many are responsible enough to own guns. I wish gun licenses were like care drivers licenses, that you had to prove you know the rules and that you are sane . If not no gun for you.

Metal detectors detecting potential criminal weapons is not against the First Amendment. It's a private company policy. In almost every company. JFK is an example of this. They're a private airport, and metal detectors are doing their job.
