Ban violent video games.
I guess kids grow up to be de-sensitized at some point?

I grew up in the 1980's. We were told video games were good "training" for computerized cold-war operations, of all things.

This is scary stat on lobbying by the NRA...

The NRA outspent its chief opponent 73-1 to lobby the outgoing Congress, according to the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation, which tracks such spending. It spent more than 4,000 times its biggest opponents during the 2012 election.

In all, the group spent at least $24 million US this election cycle — $16.8 million through its political action committee and nearly $7.5 million through its affiliated Institute for Legislative Action. Its chief foil, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, spent just $5,816.

On direct lobbying, the NRA also was far ahead. Through July 1, the NRA spent $4.4 million to lobby Congress to the Brady Campaign's $60,000.
