The chief of one of America's largest teachers unions, who advocated for stay-at-home school during the pandemic and demanded more money for teachers to resume their duties, now apparently is an expert on preventing violence.

That's according to comments from American Federation of Teachers union chief Randi Weingarten following a school shooting by a 28-year-old woman portraying herself as a man who shot up a Christian school, killing three children and three adults.

Her solution to school shootings? Gun confiscation.

A report from Fox News said her call came are part of her demands for an "assault weapons ban" following the school shooting in Nashville.

She demanded America follow the examples set by Australia and New Zealand.

In her words, "Today, we renew our call for common sense gun safety legislation, including a ban on assault weapons. This is an epidemic.

The background includes the fact that Australia and New Zealand, along with Scotland, have moved to the extreme in trying to prevent citizens from having guns for self-defense.

The report noted, "Scotland got the U.K. to ban handguns and Australia issued a mandatory gun buyback program in 1996 of semi-automatic rifles and shotguns. Meanwhile, New Zealand enacted a semi-automatic weapons ban days after the 2019 Christchurch shooting that killed 50 people in two mosques."

The report noted that bans and mandatory buybacks "all necessitate the confiscation of guns."

Faced with backlash, Weingarten later claimed her words were "doctored" and complained of having to deal with what the public perceived.

"Frankly, I saw today in my speech when I called on us to do a moment of silence for the Tennessee Christian school to, you know, in a speech that I was giving to public school parents and teachers, but to also renew a call for the assault weapons ban. And then somebody doctored the speech and said I was calling to confiscate guns. So, all day long that’s what I’ve been dealing with."
