Helmet Laws Making a Comeback
Over the last year or so I have mentioned that the CDC (Center for Disease Control) seems to have wormed it's way into the helmet debate. Most likely brought in by the same thinking folk that brought them into the gun control debate.
So what does this mean to us?
I just received this from the MRF tonight.
The CDC community preventative services task force has released it
findings statement on motorcycle safety. Its just as bad as we imagined
it. I was supposed to speak to the CDC today but they postponed. Il likely
speak to them tomorrow to answer some question about the report. One of
the things I am to find out is where are all the studies they say they
used? They claim to use data from 69 studies yet there are only 7
resources listed in the reference section. A full MRF release is in the
Vice President Government Relations and Public Affairs

At this point there is no reason to panic, but I urge you to prepare for fight to get heated as we go into the next few years. This year is going to be a year, whether you like it or not, we will have to pay very close attention to the elections this November.
Please pass this info on to your freedom loving friends
