Ok.. this may sound like a simple one, but i am a bit flummoxed...

I am using the New Mexico BLM FGDB PLSS grid and points.
if someone can either guide me along with or help me make a new feature class Ill be highly appreciative.

What needs to be done is to remove all of the Quarter quad points and leave only the section points in a query.
The problem is that the data table does not have a deliniator for such.
So, is there a way to grab the points that ONLY intersect the corners of the Sections and NOT the Quarter Sections?

Basically, wherever two lines intersect, I can grab that point. Not the points ALONG the line?

The blue points are my target, but ONLY those that are intersected by TWO lines, not one.

Assuming the lines are unbroken (except where they intersect), you could use a Spatial Join with the points as the primary and the lines as the secondary.  You could use the One to One option and set one of the fields to create a comma separated list by accesssing its properties, making sure it is a text field with enough characters and using the join option.  If at least one comma occurs in that field on a point after the join, more than one line hit that point.
