I have the right to practice falconry just like anything else I want to do, no one is sitting on a throne giving out privileges to those they choose.

That's correct, falconry is a privilege because to do it legally you need to have a permit, just like driving.


A privilege is a certain entitlement to immunity granted by the state or another authority to a restricted group, either by birth or on a conditional basis. ... By contrast, a right is an inherent, irrevocable entitlement held by all citizens or all human beings from the moment of birth.
