          Stop making them look cool,  Red, cheap plastic handles, no sleek gunmetal or nickel plating, rather yellow powder-coating for the metal parts.  Put gun magazines on the top shelf alongside the other Adult magazines.  Ban semi-automatic mechanisms, 'One Shot then Re-Cock".  No conceal carry.
