The Third Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:
“”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.
Parsing the Third Amendment
This amendment was very relevant to the era in which it was first passed, since the forcible quartering of British Soldiers was one of the things that precipitated the American Revolution. It is considerably less relevant now as the US military provides housing for its troops.
None! Zero! Zilch! This appears to be the only amendment nobody has had any issues with and can, generally, agree upon the interpretation of. But really, will that last?
