Urbanites "freak out" over it.
Well, they're going to need to get over it. While I don't care for the government owning any land outside of that needed for government buildings (of which we have entirely too many), the anti-civil rights forces need to understand that "public" means "all the public"--not just the ones who are riding their $2500 mountain bikes. Our money was confiscated to help buy and maintain these lands, so we get to use them as well.
Push back, people. At some point, this bright idea is going to be opened for public comment. Make sure you're a part of the "public" that comments.
