    who haven't been through this. My 87 year old mom had to tell a nephew recently that they needed to just agree to disagree on gun regulation. I've had similar issues with him and others.

    Over the years I've found what kcc has suggested can also happen. People mellow, sometimes realize they were misinformed, overzealous, etc. Maybe they get to the point of being virtual outcasts. Whatever, it may be the cousin will grow out of this in the future.

    Meanwhile you have done what is recommended for stress management. Avoid or terminate relationships that create too much stress. Especially in this day and age, we don't need any more.
