You should protect yourself and your family ,just like you would any other day against any other threat.Getting involved in this guy's life will just destroy your focus and draw his drug addled attention to you.
Trolliing or just stupidity....not really sure. But back to the OP, if you can supply in intelligent response we would all love to hear it.
I have encountered thousands of people like this in my life. It never occurred to me to contact authorities to deprive them of firearm ownership. How about contacting his doctor or pharmacist to deprive him of the pills while your at it?
Instead of dwelling on this man's sin we need to pray for him that he opens his heart to Christ and repents. God can work wonders in your life if you live for him.
Call management and have the guy evicted. Be vigilant and prepared for any event that might creep up until he's gone, but don't throw gas on the flame and draw attention to yourself or your family. You never know what brought this guy to the level he's now living on, and IMO you should steer clear of it and him. After the event went down that you described, I'm sure the guy will be gone soon enough and your life can get back to some sense of normalcy. Most everyone that has ever partaken of "fire water" has awaken to find themselves a little worse for wear from the ordeal. I kinda feel sorry for the guy, but I know it's his own fault and he surly needs medical care to overcome his demons. Whether or not he accepts the advice that I'm sure has been given to him since the ordeal is up to him. IMO, your preemptive strike might have repercussions and make things worse for both you and your neighbors.

Dandyone I think your heart is in the right place with your concern for your families safety. You've done all you can do do by reporting to the police. The landlord may be able to press charges for criminal damage and maybe his drug and alcohol abuse can play into that. I think the most you can do is convince the landlord to press charges. Even if he gets evicted what is to stop him from coming back to the building?
I don't feel like you are attacking the 2nd, but surely you see where restriction of 2A rights for someone because of allegatons similar to what we are discussing could be exploited by anti-gun zealots. Yeah I get that you are not buying the slippery-slope arguement but it is.
Your best option is to move. Escape the danger area, go where trouble isn't. Your landlord should be understanding if you're trying to get out of a lease and like someone mentioned you may have a legal leg to stand on. Can't guarantee you won't have a similar neighbor where you go next but it's worth a shot. Or you could buy/rent a house.

I wonder what would happen, should he go before a Judge, and you be there to state your case about him not being able to own a firearm. Maybe that's what you should do, to satisfy your own curiosity, and to let the guy know who may have a voice in his case.
Am I being sarcastic? nope. Harsh words, maybe a few to help jog your mind into perspective.
I'm just stating that should you really want to get involved in this guy's life, you'd best plan to show up in the Courtroom. If you don't, then you have no business interferring in his private affairs.
I do know one thing, if it were me you were attempting to meddle in my affairs, you might find yourself being served with a civil suit. Just food for thought here. Nothing more behind it. If you follow through, you best hope he isn't as sharp as most other people.

There is good and bad in condo/apartment living. The original poster happened upon something bad.
From the original post:
I live in a condo, and my upstairs neighbor (a renter, not owner) has a destructive addition to alcohol and Rx pills.
The fact that you can either buy or rent the condo is not the best way to go. Just saying.........

To be perfectly honest it sounds like this guy is wasted 24/7.I seriously doubt if any FFL dealer will even hand the guy a 4473 before showing him the door
