(The Third Amendment)
) to the United States Constitution
is a part of the United States Bill of Rights
. It was introduced on September 5, 1789, and then three quarters of the states ratified this as well as 9 other amendments on December 15, 1791. It prohibits, in peacetime or wartime, the quartering of soldiers
in private homes without the owner’s consent. The Third Amendment makes a great case for more guns, and more modern weapons. If a soldier demands to be quartered in your home, how do you respond?
To uphold the Third Amendment requires enforcement. To enforce your private property rights you will need some firepower. That’s where your right to bear arms comes into play. For if a soldier demands to be quartered, your objection must have teeth. At such time, a semi-automatic or automatic weapon makes a good deterrent. It will be an unwise soldier who demands rather than requests quartering in that house. Even if you “can’t” win against a soldier, weaponry betters your odds. A soldier who won’t take “no” for an answer will likely respect the sound of a person who can hold the same gun as a soldier.
The Third Amendment makes clear that “arms” equals “arms adequate to repel soldiers.”
