If you don't have the minimum equipment required to play you sit, simple as that. Maybe for rec league hockey cages should be required? I don't wear one but it seems like it would wipe out a lot of injuries and insurance costs the rinks and the players pay.
just out of curosity, what other rights would you like to take away? what country are we living in? I'm a grown man if I want to wear a cage, or a visor, or nothing at all, it should be my decision. I understand the risks and am capable of making my own decisions. that being said, I do wear a visor. (and its not all tilted up)

and for the other question, Illinois has a seatbelt law but no helmet law for motorcyclists. the point I was making was that as adults we should make decisions for ourselves. whats right for you may not be right for the next guy. although I wear my seatbelt, I dont think it should be the law for adults. an adult should be able to make an informed decision on their own.
