- Attempt to highlight alternative resolutions to conflict rather than relying on gunplay as the only or automatic means of settling confrontations. Clashes can be resolved by other less lethal means, perhaps by characters using their wits and cunning to overcome opponents.
- Consider highlighting the emotional consequences for the shooter, such as feelings of guilt, remorse, personal angst, and so on.
- Consider incorporating such real-life scenarios as:
- The shooter or possessor of a gun being accidently injured by it.
- A gun accidentally misfiring while being loaded or unloaded by a criminal or other user.
- A gun misfiring and injuring someone after being accidentally dropped.
- Consider the story potential that may exist in a family filing suit against a gun manufacturer for injuries or death sustained by a defective firearm that misfired.
- Consider reflecting the reality that homeowners often freeze up or tremble so badly when trying to use a gun in self-defense that they are unable to deploy it. Or show them as being too frozen in fear to even get the gun.
- Where appropriate to the story, consider portraying a teenage girl threatening to break up with her boyfriend unless he gets rid of his gun – or a boy doing the same with a gun-owning girlfriend.
- Consider depicting the reality that women are far more likely to be shot by husbands or lovers than by an intruder. Odds are that a gun in her home will be used against her rather than in her defense.

Sigh… Why are they SO determined to take the ability to protect one’s self away from us? Do we really scare them that badly???
