Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reacted to the latest terror attack in France after a gunman opened fire on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, killing a police officer and wounding two others.
First, he pointed out that terrorists are finding ways to get guns in the country despite the strict gun laws.
"France has very strict gun laws, except for terrorists, who seem to always be able to get guns," he said on "Outnumbered."
Gingrich said the attacker, who was shot dead at the scene, shot a police officer in 2001 and served 11 years in prison until 2012.
Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old French citizen, was also on a watch list, prompting the former presidential candidate to question the effectiveness of the system.
"The idea of a watch list is something we may all have to give up on. If you're on a watch list, you're dangerous. If you're dangerous, why are you out on your own?" he asked.
Gingrich and Meghan McCain agreed that there is a growing problem in the West with immigrants who do not "assimilate" into society.
McCain said this is the major difference compared to large immigration waves of past decades.
"People have a legitimate cause for concern and it's a big reason why we have President Trump right now," she argued.
