No Fly List Unconstitutional

The Fifth Amendment says, in part, "(…)nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; (…)" The No Fly List does just that; it deprives a citizen of the right to fly on an airplane, which deprives them of the right to leave the country, or to travel within the country in a timely manner. all WITHOUT "due process of law." A person's name can be put on the list without ANY due process, at the WHIM of a bureaucrat or politician, and they are not even told when their name is put on the list. They find out the next time they try to travel by plane, and there is NO "appeal process." Once your name is on the list, for ANY reason, or NO reason, it is impossible to get it removed. Worse yet, the list is also used to deprive citizens whose names are put on the list of the right to own a gun for self defense. One way to "get around the law" and BAN guns for people some politician or bureaucrat somewhere doesn't like. This is patently unconstitutional. (Don't Step On Snek)
