Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Everyone is born with inherent rights, it is the fear of punishment for exercising those rights that prevents people from expressing their right. Human rights are not created by what men write in stone or on paper.
Rights cannot be granted or taken away; rights exist universally and are inherent in all beings (as the US Constitution says). Some individuals live in locations with governments who deny those rights, such as the UK (denies the right to self defense), China (denies the right to free speech / religion), Saudi Arabia (denies freedom of movement for women) but that doesn't mean those people don't have those rights.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
