No peacetime quartering of soldiers.

I forget the technical term, but the right not to have soldiers boarded at your house. Last time I looked on find-law, there had not been a US Supreme Court case where this amendment played a part.

No quartering troops in people's houses without their approval. :D Just was looking at it yesterday, otherwise I prolly wouldn't have known.

W.R. Chandler said...

Troops cannot be quartered in a private home against the owner's wishes (unless it's wartime and Congress says the troops can stay).

Well that sent me charging off to Google so no points for me.

That except in times of war,as prescribed by law, no American may be forced to provide housing to federal soldiers.

And you thought I watched Baywatch, why?

You can't be forced to house me in your house against your will.

The right to tell British soldiers to get the hell off my property . . . it comes in handy regularly.

maxutils said...

And, why do YOU know the name of David Haselhoff's character on Baywatch?

It states soldiers cannot be housed in a private house during peacetime, nor during wartime, except as provided for by law.
