    He's actually referring to how rights are given to us (humans) as soon as we're given birth to. We are not certified to get rights but its naturally given to us.

    What Jefferson means by the laws of nature and of Nature's God is that all people have a natural right, given to them by God as soon as they are born to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    Explanation:

    What Jefferson means by the laws of nature and of Nature's God is that all people have a natural right, given to them by God as soon as they are born to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It also argues that a ruler can be legitimately overthrown if trying to subdue the freedom and happiness given by nature to the people being ruled. Slavery is a contrary example to the laws of nature and of Nature's God.
