<p>On the Monday night edition of MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>All In</em>, longtime liberal columnist Jonathan Alter reacted to President Obama&rsquo;s executive actions on gun control by comparing it to President Abraham Lincoln&rsquo;s Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and remarking how heartbreaking it was for Obama to have met with the families of Sandy Hook victims and <strong>&ldquo;see those six-year-olds stacked up like cord wood.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Host Chris Hayes began the segment with a number of soundbites from the President and Republican presidential candidates opposed to the move before remarking: <strong>&ldquo;While the substantive reason to be concerned about guns seems clear, in a country where in 2015, at least 265 kids under the age of 18 picked up a firearm and accidentally shot themselves or someone else with that firearm, the politics of it seem less clear.&rdquo;</strong></p>
