Over at The New American (the magazine of the John Birch Society), Joe Wolverton raises the issue (actually more of a highlight, as he is not alone) that the modern surveillance state's intrusion into the home could constitute a third amendment violation. It is an idea that, of course, has yet to be tested. One of the points highlighted is that the national security administration is always headed by a commissioned military officer pursuant to Department of Defense Directive 5100.20. Notably, the director himself is not invading the home, at most it is his subordinates at his command. To that end, it is a stretch to say that he is being quartered in violation of the third amendment. But if anybody brings the case, we will be watching.
