As far as I understand, the UK does not have a constitution of any kind and the parliament is fully sovereign. However the Fixed-term Parliaments Act looks like a piece of binding legislature, since it requires a two-thirds majority vote in the House of Commons to trigger a general election. Can the Parliament ignore the Fixed Parliament Act and announce a new general election with just a simple majority? Or is it binding and cannot be ignored unless it's repealed?

The State of California passed legislation (AB 1887) that banned travel to Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and most recently, Texas. Alabama, South Dakota, and Texas all recently passed legislation that could prevent LGBTQ parents from adopting or fostering children. Kentucky passed a religious freedom bill that would allow students to exclude LGBTQ classmates from campus groups. The ban was passed due to these states passing of anti-LGBTQ legislation. Can the state of California do this?

On the San Francisco ballot in the upcoming June 2016 election, there is Proposition E, which aims to bring city law regarding sick leave into conformity with a state law of the same nature passed in 2014. However, shouldn't the state law simply override any non-conforming local law? I would assume that California has a state equivalent to the U.S. Constitution's "Supremacy Clause." Is that not correct?

In the event of martial law being sanctioned in the United States, I am in question about the Constitution and how it would apply. If a soldier comes to my home during martial law and asks to be quartered or be let in for an "unlawful" search am I still subject to outline the Constitution to soldiers and deny them from quartering in my home or searching in my home without a warrant signed by a judge? I know the legislative and judicial branches are in the backseat during martial law, so that's why I ask this. If the 3rd and 4th amendments didn't apply then could they waltz right into my home even if I said they cannot?
