Legislators in Connecticut are considering creating a law that will require motorcyclists to wear helmets. Connecticut originally had a helmet law, but repealed it back in 1975.

A group of riders with the Connecticut Motorcycle Riders Association showed up in the State Capitol building to plead their case against the legislation.
"The legislature governs on the consent of the governed. In the case of the seatbelt law, the public at large did not object, but with the helmet law, the riders do object, and that's the different," said Rich Paukner with the Connecticut Motorcycle Riders Association.
Proponents of the law argue that safety is the issue:
"I'll have less business if we have motorcycle helmets in Connecticut. I'll be happier to have less business, I don't need that kind of business," said Dr. Phil Brewer, formerly the president of the Connecticut College of Emergency Physicians.
Sounds like Big Brother doesn't want us getting killed.
