And if they want to completely shut it down altogether they can. Regulating helmets or seatbelts on privately owned roads and private property would be a violation of your rights. But the right to drive on a public road does not exist.
My point is it doesn't exist because we have been conditioned that it doesn't exist. For most of history governments regulated the possession of weapons too! Many still do.
My personal safety is my concern, that is a large part of all of the ccw argument. Seat belts and helmet laws fall into the same category in my opinion.
We could argue this until doomsday and all we would accomplish is to turn this political and ruin a good thread without convincing each other.
