During a recent campaign event, Kansas Democrat Senate nominee Barbara Bollier gushed over Australian-style gun confiscation that takes “all” firearms from citizens, praising it as “amazing.”
“The outcome of the race could impact who controls the Senate after the election since Bollier is running to replace retiring Republican senator Pat Roberts,” The Washington Free Beacon reported. “Bollier’s stated support for gun confiscation could make her campaign against Republican Roger Marshall harder to win in the traditionally red state. Bollier already faces an uphill but not unwinnable battle, with The Cook Political Report rating the race as currently leaning toward Marshall.”
“They have no guns. They don’t allow them. They just took them all away,” Bollier said. “And, you know what, it’s pretty darn safe. It’s this amazing thing.”
Eric Pahls, campaign manager for Republican Roger Marshall’s campaign, warned of Bollier’s far-left gun control views in a statement to the Free Beacon.
“This may sound good to Bollier’s donors in San Francisco, but to Kansans, this is disqualifying,” Pahls said. “Even among Democrats, forced gun confiscation is an alarming concept.”

A spokesperson for the far-left Democrat responded to the video by stating that her comments were taken “completely out of context for their political benefit.”
“Bollier’s comments supporting gun confiscation come as gun-control groups have begun to shy away from the issue. In a recent swing state ad campaigns, Everytown for Gun Safety completely avoided the issue of guns in favor of ads about health care and energy issues,” The Free Beacon added. “They also come as Kansas and the rest of the country are experiencing record gun sales. Industry estimates suggest there could be nearly 7.5 million new gun owners across the country. If even a fraction of those new gun owners become politically active gun voters, the impact in races like Bollier’s could be significant.”
