(NaturalNews) Mother Jones Magazine is well-known for its far-left viewpoints, so you wouldn't expect the publication to have much positive influence on the subject of firearms and gun ownership. And yet, in a recent video one of its reporters inadvertently teaches viewers how to build an AK-47 military look-alike semi-automatic rifle using "demilitarized" parts.

At the beginning of the video the reporter, Brian Schatz, explains that the ubiquitous AK-47 is the most abundant "assault weapon" on the earth. He goes on to note that it is the weapon of choice for use in "proxy wars, genocides" and other armed actions around the planet.

He reports that millions of these weapons have been disassembled in order to take them out of circulation, but that mass demilitarization operations have created stockpiles of AK-47 parts that can be legally purchased singly, then later reassembled into a fully functional rifle.

"The resultant pile of parts is no longer classified as a firearm, and the can be sold freely throughout the United States without requiring background checks or any other documentation," he said.

'If it weren't for this story...'

After hearing such "rumors," he decided to check into it further, and what he found was that groups of Americans have been holding "gun-build parties," in which they would meet to assemble fully functional AKs from stockpiled rifle parts and components. Several models of military look-like weapons, in fact, have been reassembled in this manner, including AR-15s, Uzis and HK-33s.

Traveling to Garden Grove, Calif., Schatz said he "paid cash" for an AK-47 parts kit at a "gun-build party" and was able to do so without filling out paperwork and undergoing a background check as is required for weapons purchased from gun stores.

"If it weren't for this story," he reported, "there would be nothing linking me to this gun except for a few private messages in an online guns forum stating that I would be interested in purchasing a parts kit."

Bringing his fully assembled AK into the camera's view, Schatz said the gun-build party hosts asked that patrons not film or take images of the actual build.

"This is the result of a parts kit and day of labor," he said, holding up the rifle. "It's an Egyptian semi-automatic AK-47." He explained that "after bending" the rifle's receiver portion, where ammunition is fed through a magazine and the firing action takes place, all other rifle components fit in place and the rifle becomes functional.

Next, the video cuts to Schatz standing at an outdoor location described as "Jawbone Canyon, Calif." He has his rifle and he explains that, "two days ago, this was just a collection of parts."

"The most important element of this is what is called the receiver," he says. "When we began it was just a flat piece of metal that we used to press and bend into shape." From there, he "added all the other components, and now it's a fully functional AK-47."

In the next scene, Schatz is shown "locking and loading" his weapon, which he then fires several times without any malfunction. "It works," he said.

Next, he said the magazine's editors "thought it would be best to destroy this AK" (remember, it's a left-wing magazine), "so that's what we're going to do."

Thanks for helping the criminals, Mother Jones

Schatz then proceeded to take a small metal saw and cut the weapon in half. "Okay," he said after finishing the job, "no more gun."

While buying gun parts and assembling them yourself is legal, Mother Jones magazine has inadvertently detailed a way in which criminals can skirt documentation requirements for firearms sales (even in ultra-liberal California) by buying legal gun parts and then reassembling them for later use. And criminals would be more likely to do this in states like California, which have stricter gun control laws, because most American gun owners obey state and federal gun laws and buy their firearms through legal outlets.

Way to go, Mother Jones. Thanks for making the country a little less safe by putting more weapons in the hands of the criminal element.
