Dotcom orders deletion of 3D gun design

Related

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom says designs for a 3D-printed gun are scary and he's deleted public links to its blueprints from his new file-sharing website.

The US Government is investigating whether the gun design breached arms-control laws relating to shipping weapons overseas by making the plans publicly available online.

The plans were available on Dotcom's Mega website, but the New Zealand-based entrepreneur asked his staff to delete the public files.

Dotcom says he thinks they are a serious threat to security of the community.
