FAA's rash decision to shut down drone clubs near Washington, DC

From Ted Bahr, conference chairman of InterDrone:
 
The recent announcement that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is shutting down all model aircraft clubs within 30 miles of Washington’s National Airport due to national security concerns and airspace safety seems Draconian at best, and at worst a bad violation of our constitutional right to assemble. I mean, you can’t shut down a CLUB. You may be able to prohibit their flying activities in a given area, but you can’t close their doors. Can the government prove that the flyers from each of these clubs were violating the airspace rules?
