Fairfax on the United States Constitution

A letter in today's SMH:
They managed a second amendment, how about a third amendment?
Luis Sanchez Connells Point
Hmmm....
The Third Amendment (Amendment III) 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 was introduced on the same day as the Second, as part of the Bill of Rights:
the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. These limitations serve to protect the natural rights of liberty and property. They guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public.
What a shame sneering Australians aren't more familiar with the mechanics of one of, if not the world's greatest democracy.
