  • firearm brand name merchandise marketed for children,
  • the use of firearm marketing campaigns with the specific intent to appeal to children,
  • the manufacturing of a gun with colors or designs that are specifically designed to appeal to children, and
  • the manufacturing of a gun intended for use by children that does not clearly and conspicuously note, by specified warnings on the firearm, the risk posed by the firearm by labeling somewhere visible on the firearm.
