We have covered the 1st, 2nd and 10th Amendments numerous times, but never the 3rd Amendment. You know, the one that says, umm, you know, yeah I took Con Law and I teach in a law school, … the uh … Oh yeah:
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
As noted in this article in the, er, “press” in 2007, anti-quartering groups have a long history of successfully defending our 3rd Amendment rights:
The National Anti- Quartering Association, America’s foremost Third Amendment rights group, held its annual gala in Washington Monday to honor 191 consecutive years of advocating the protection of private homes and property against the unlawful boarding of military personnel.
“This is a proud day for quarters-owners everywhere,” said the organization’s president, Charles Davison, in his keynote address. “Year after year, we have sent a loud and clear message to the federal government and to anyone else who would attack our unassailable rights: Hands off our cottages, livery stables, and haylofts.”
Apparently someone on my street in Ithaca is a 3rd Amendment fanatic, too:
