Far-right provocateur Ammon Bundy on Saturday posted a video to Facebook where he vowed to obtain an assault rifle after failing a federal background check to purchase a firearm.

"I call a buddy, he says, 'Yeah, I got a guy who can get some lowers for an AR-15 or an AR-10' and then I tell him that I was just denied and he's like, 'Oh, that guy can't help you, you know.' And basically what that does is it forces me to go on the street and find a gun."

"And I will do that, I'll find one. It will be a good weapon," he said.

“I’ll get a gun, I’ll build a gun. I’ll go mine the ore if I have to — I don’t think I’ll have to go that far, but I’ll have a gun," he vowed. "I’ll have many guns."

"And I’ll defend myself against who? Against street criminals and government criminals," he threatened.

"You should understand that disarmament of the American population is wicked," he added.
