I'm all for giving the Marine Corps the training terrain they need to be ready for anything. I also hate to see riding areas closed. I wonder how likely it would be to see an agreement something like the hunters have with the US Army Fort Hunter Leggitt? They close areas when training is scheduled, but otherwise let the public in for recreation.
In this case they are talking about expanding a live fire area. That means one it is in use, there will be ordinance on the ground. That would in effect shut it down to public access for ever.
