The Non-Violence Torrent - Disrupting the 3D-printed gun market?

• https://www.thefirearmblog.com

"The Non-Violence Torrent" is an initiative that, according to themselves, aims to disrupt the 3D-printed gun market. They plan to do this by flooding popular file sharing sites with fake gun CAD files and torrents. Instead of the CAD file, your download will contain a 3D render of the Non-Violence's symbol – the knotted gun.

Quote: "So when people are on the verge of printing a deadly weapon, they will meet a peaceful message instead."

The "knotted gun" was originally created as a memorial tribute to the singer and songwriter John Lennon. (Source) The original can be found outside the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, USA.

Above you can see a sample of The Non-Violence Torrent CAD file. I think anyone who finds this file instead of what he was expecting to download, will notice that this is probably not the correct one.
