Brown says in a veto message Wednesday that helmets provide protection, but parents can and should make good choices for their children without the state getting involved. . . The Democratic governor says “not every human problem deserves a law.”

And on that we have to agree. California voters likely hope this is an attitude Gov. Brown continues with in other areas as well.
