How can one disable, or at least tone down, the gore in Bioshock Infinite?

No I'm afraid you can't. There is no such option in any of the menus, not even in the PC version. I searched around a bit, but for this game this isn't an option.

Also, if you read some articles you'll understand why. Just a small excerpt:

The thing is — and this is possibly a spoiler — you’ll use your face-ripping, flesh-melting, eye-pecking weapons and powers to take out white supremacists. That’s game violence put to good use.

You'll use those powers on far, far more people than just white supremacists. – Sterno Mar 28 '13 at 14:59
That's an excerpt from an article, used just to describe the "violent violence" in BS:I. The "white supremacists" was not the cardinal point here – Samuele Mattiuzzo Apr 3 '13 at 9:35
Well. Looks like I'm not going for the execution achievement then. I got nauseous the first time I saw one and have refused to perform another ever since. – Yuuki Apr 3 '13 at 20:04

I am pretty sure that you can't tone down or disable the gore/violence. At least on consoles.
