    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Not quite correct. Aldi split into two companies - Aldi Nord and Aldi Sud, after the two brothers who owned and ran Aldi had a disagreement about cigarettes. Aldi Nord has Aldi stores in the US whereas Aldi Sud operates as Trader Joe’s. But they are two separate companies.

    @Denton @Sasquatch

    What change would you propose to give the responsible family member the legal ability to contain crazy cousin Eddie? Eddie has the right to not be contained against his will...and yet, the personal responsibility you promote doesn't (generally speaking) have the legal teeth to do what's needed. Thanks!

    Simple. It’s a cultural change that is needed. Rather than looking to the government to do things, such things should start at the family level.
    Crazy Eddie’s family should have a sit-down with him.

    To me it's really simple. The family has the responsibility to keep Eddie contained. Maybe not physically but they can make sure Eddie can't get his hands on a gun. If Eddie gets his hands on a gun and starts pointing it at people or shooting them then a polite society has the responsibility to put Eddie down. It takes a village...an armed one.

    Ah see, there's the rub.
    In the armed polite society - that would work. But this aint that.
    My version of a 'red flag law' - would enable only 'responsible family' to legally quickly do what is needed. Not neighbors, school officials, a pissed-off ex, etc.
    From personal experience - 'containing' someone (in this case it was a family member) is a complicated process through the courts - which it should be - to protect individual's rights. No easy answers here, and I hope y'all never have to go through it... especially when a 'sit-down' isn't nearly enough. It's a start - but if you have to do more... good luck.
