How to use "Re-strict" in context?

The word "restrict" comes from the Anglo-French rester, meaning "to make close" or "to keep confined." In modern English, restrict usually means "to limit or restrict," "to tighten," "to lessen." Restrictions on freedom of speech, press, assembly, and other rights have been a part of American public life since the colonial period. The first U.S. Constitution, for example, protected citizens from "excessive bail," "imprisonment for debt," and "slavery."

Restrictions on freedom are justified on the grounds of public safety or public welfare.
