Kim Dotcom has changed his mind about the blueprints for the 3D gun that Mega stored on its website last week.
After the U.S. State Department demanded that the designer of the world’s first fully printable gun remove the files from his network, Mega committed to keep them safe online in his offshore servers.
However, Dotcom is now taking back that promise and has removed the public files.
“I think it’s a serious threat to the security of the community. I think it’s scary that people can print 3D guns that can’t even be detected by metal detectors. This should concern everybody,” Dotcom said in a statement to TechCrunch.
The plans were available on Mega for a few days before Dotcom asked his staff to delete the public files from the servers.
