FROM, not BY!!!
Today, the central question Americans ask is 'How can we be more protected BY the government?' Our Founders engineered the Constitution by asking 'How can we be more protected FROM the government?'
"I cannot help thinking that of late years, measures have been adopted and opinions sanctioned in this country, which have an evident tendency to stretch to the utmost the constitutional authority of our Executive, and to introduce the political evils of those European governments whose principles we have rejected."
-Thomas Cooper, 1799
