Government can grant rights within a legalistic framework; its their laws and their power to exercise.
The Second Amendment is a good example.
Could you explain?

Amendment II : A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed
The Bill of rights is not all rights, some of the amendments are limitations of federal power. The word "right" appears in Amendments II, IV, VII and to some point IX. These are recognized by government and its enforcement mechanisms.
