U.S. Constitution

The Domestic Violence Clause
in Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution:

"The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."

The United States Shall Protect Against Violence.

This constitutional provision obligates and empowers
the American people to protect themselves against
threats to their safety and survival.
