<p>In an interview with New York Times foreign correspondent Rukmini Callimachi during MSNBC&rsquo;s 11 a.m. ET hour on Monday, anchor Kate Snow touted the reporter&rsquo;s latest piece on the war against ISIS: <strong>&ldquo;...you spoke to a former Islamic State fighter from Germany....he said to you, &lsquo;For America and Canada, it&#39;s much easier for them to get them over the social network, because they say the Americans are dumb &ndash; they have open gun policies.&rsquo;&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Callimachi responded:<strong> &ldquo;He explained to me that in Europe, they&#39;re specifically looking for fighters who already have a criminal record&nbsp; and who have a criminal network that they can tap into because it&#39;s hard to get weapons....He said that in America, that extra step is not there.&rdquo;</strong> Snow interjected: &ldquo;The difficulty of getting weapons.&rdquo; Callimachi replied: &ldquo;Exactly.&rdquo;</p>
