unload permanently some kernel modules

At first, I am sorry my English is not so good. My question is about to unload permanently some kernel modules. Particularly I focus on usb_storage module. I can unload it by modprobe or rmmod commands, but I see that as just a regular user plug his flash memory into usb port, the module is automatically loaded again. How can I restrict that in order a non-root user can use his flash only if the root user manually load the usb_storage module previously?
Thanks very much in advance,
