The Third Amendment is obsolete

Third Amendment Protection from quartering of troops.
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.


I should add, I am posting this to show that the reactions of our forefathers to the circumstance that caused this to be included is the same mindset of the 2nd amemdment which if the thinking is the same should be obsolete as well.

2. where the hell am I going to put a squad in a 2150 square foot house?

 

I could probably manage a fireteam, but they have to provide their own food... and it's lights out at midnight!

Great! MORE folks to jostle my elbow in the lab!

7. it's a little more complicated...

 

1.) I've two labs and a study in the house, each with their own decor/style
2.) Next summer's project is to convert the old detached garage into another lab - this one will have telescopes!
3.) My lab wear is more Duluth trading company, than classic lab wear...

6. yup. the war on terror will never end, and we need your house for general muckety-muck. so sorry.

as long as congress passes both a declaration of war and and details how your house can be occupied by troops, it's all ok as far as the third amendment goes.
