Should have said "by the government, its agents, federal state or local". They didn't add the specific protection "from whom" because to them at the time it was bleeding obvious:
At the time, it only applied to the federal government.

If you adjust or change anything in the constitution no matter how good it is supposed to be, it'll be a slippery slope to a complete rewrite. Politicians will all sign onto a slight change because it would then become historical evidence that the constitution has been and can be changed. America does and should fight to protect it as it was and should be prepared to defend it, remember the old saying "give them an inch and they take a mile" in this case it'd be "Give them one update and they'll take your rights".
