FBI: Man plotted machine gun attack on Masonic temple

A Milwaukee man wanted to storm a Masonic temple with a machine gun and kill at least 30 people in an attack he hoped would show “nobody can play with Muslims” and spark more mass shootings in the United States, federal agents said Tuesday after the man’s arrest.

Federal prosecutors charged 23-year-old Samy Mohamed Hamzeh on Tuesday with unlawfully possessing a machine gun and receiving and possessing firearms not registered to him. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney, Dean Puschnig, didn’t immediately respond to a question asking why charges were limited to gun possession. Hamzeh’s attorney, federal defender Ronnie Murray, didn’t immediately return email and voicemail messages left after business hours.
