A 21-year-old Dearborn Heights man accused by the FBI of being an ISIS supporter and planning an attack on an area church is due in federal court on Monday for a detention hearing.

The criminal complaint doesn’t identify which church Abu-Rayyan was allegedly planning on targeting.

"It's easy, and a lot of people go there. Plus, people are not allowed to carry guns in church. Plus, it would make the news. Everybody would've heard. Honestly, I regret not doing it. If I can't do jihad in the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here."

For over 50 years, Wisconsin law has prohibited the possession and sale of switchblade knives, but a new law signed by Gov. Scott Walker this weekend now makes them legal.

Supporters like Walker said it's a tool to help first responders and other law enforcement personnel at scenes of accidents, but for police, the law means another factor they must be aware of when out in the field.
