For me personally, how one views one's natural right of self-defense, has always been a litmus test by which I judge where anyone truly, truly believes in individual freedoms.

So, if the following statement he made in a recent Radio New Zealand interview does turn out to be true (I'd have to hear him say that in the context he said it, to be certain), it is with much dismay and sadness to say that Kim DotCom just fell off my "Freedom Scale:"

"I think it's a serious threat to 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," he said.

While I 'get' the pressure he's under from the US Govt fascists seeking to extradite him and may want to mitigate any further actions that may jeopardize the situation more, that said, the above statement by Kim DotCom changes my views of him, completely, as far as his previous reputation as a champion of free exchange of info. And, I apologize for assuming and stating in the past, that "there's no way in hell Kim DotCom will be taking Cody's Liberator 3D-Print file down!" .o(

The US government pulled the plans for Defense Distributed's 3D printed gun after two days, but not before it was downloaded 100,000 times.

It took Kim Dotcom, founder of online file sharing service Mega, a little bit longer, but the internet mogul has deleted all public links to the weapon's blueprints.

Dotcom, who is fighting the US government's attempts to extradite him from his mansion home in New Zealand to face piracy charges, told Radio New Zealand that the possibilities of the weapon were scary.
