I'm all for 2A rights. However, access to a states own land is a big deal. States can't get access to their own land. This should be where States are asserting their 10A rights. I would love to see state troopers kick out the national park rangers, or send the federalies an invoice for lease of the land in a national park.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) –– A judge in Wyoming says he has no authority to block a federal plan to reduce snowmobile traffic in Yellowstone National Park this winter.

Wednesday's ruling by U.S. District Judge Clarence Brimmer may mean no more than 318 snowmobiles will be allowed in the park each day this winter. Last year, the park allowed 720 snowmobiles.

The number that should be allowed in the world's first national park has been the subject of a long, convoluted legal battle.

Snowmobile proponents, including the state of Wyoming, say the activity is important to the economies of communities around the park during the winter. Environmentalists contend the machines cause noise and air pollution in the park.

What was the constitutional argument for national parks?

It's not State land. It is Federal land. Federal preemption lets Federal rules preempt state rules on Federal land.

Wyoming has as much authority over snowmobiling in Yellowstone NP as they do over public access to FE Warren AFB.

And you don't need a fucking constitutional amendment to create a National Park in a federally administered territory. YNP was created before WY became a state, so stop whining and change it through the Federal government instead of being sue happy pussies.
