I get it,  I do.  I get the idea that we wanna be able to choose for ourselves the risks we face each day.  At some point, the danger of NOT doing is greater than the actual doing.

The freedom of experience is almost always a significant amount of the joy.

But dang!

ONONDAGA, N.Y. — Police say a motorcyclist participating in a protest ride against helmet laws in upstate New York died after he flipped over the bike’s handlebars and hit his head on the pavement.

Troopers say Contos hit his brakes and the motorcycle fishtailed. The bike spun out of control, and Contos toppled over the handlebars. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Note to Leftists: Just because it’s a good idea does not make it just a-ok to legislate!

  1. He assumed the risk and paid the ultimate price. At least he had the freedom to choose.

  2. So long as the rest of us don’t wind up on the hook for those idiots who go helmetless and rack up huge medical bills as a result of their stupidity, I’m all for repealing mandatory helmet laws. I don’t care whether or not you wear a helmet when you ride- I just don’t want to pay if you get hurt.
