    Hard to understand why someone would want to shoot up a Masonic Temple:

    A 23-year-old Milwaukee man charged with illegally possessing machine guns had planned a massacre at a Masonic temple in the city, federal officials said Tuesday.

    Samy Mohamed Hamzeh was arrested Monday after buying two automatic weapons and a silencer from undercover agents, the U.S. attorney's office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin said in a statement.

    The investigation thwarted an attack "that could have resulted in significant injury and/or loss of life," FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert J. Shields said in a statement announcing the arrest.

    Will that help you determine if it is harder to understand that incident than why someone would want to shoot up a Masonic temple?

    A second later the dog nearly bit his hand. Missed that shot by a half-second.
