    Forty-two Republican House members sent a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Friday, urging her to allow security fencing around the Capitol to be taken down.

    The letter, spearheaded by Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C.), sounded the alarm over proposals to implement the fencing permanently after it was erected after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, noting that high-profile events like the inauguration are over.

    “We write with concerns about the security measures and enhanced fencing around the U.S. Capitol even though high profile events like the inauguration are over. In particular, we are concerned with recent reports that the fencing surrounding the Capitol may become permanent,” they wrote.

    “We are willing to have an honest debate about providing Capitol Hill Police with the resources they need to be better prepared without turning the Capitol into a permanent fortress. To that end, we urge you to remove the barbed wire fencing surrounding the Capitol and send the National Guard troops home to their families. It’s time. It’s time for healing and it's time for the removal of the fencing so the nation may move forward.”

    The barbed wire fencing had nothing to do with this particular attempt at incursion.  So Boebert (and the others) are red herrings to this particular event. 

    I've driven through LOTS of security gates, police checkpoints, military facility traffic control, and so on.  I cannot remember a single instance where I could have rammed two officers with my vehicle.  Anyone have an explanation of procedures why such a thing would happen?
