Steele has not yet drawn up the legislation, but plans to propose a ban on giving a machine gun to anyone under the age of 16. She said that legislators in Connecticut passed similar legislation banning shooting ranges from giving machine guns to kids following an incident with an 8-year-old boy.

Steele cannot introduce a bill until the next legislative session in 2015, so she must be re-elected in November in order to propose the bill.
