He was particularly critical of states, which he said are not placing the names of people into a national database designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally ill. He said some states are not entering names into the system and 23 others are only putting in a small number of records.

"It’s going to be a battle, but the president, I think, and vice president, are really ready to lead the fight," Lieberman said on CNN’s "State of the Union."
