    As an experienced landlord, he should have known that once he got an order of eviction from the courts, let the Marshall's or Sheriff's office handle the tenant. Letting the tenant know that you bought a gun will only serve to allow the tenant to be the first to call the police that he felt threatened. Fail on his part as well as the police.

    LTB nailed it. Courts and LE is the way to go, but the landlord's biggest mistake was the "and made sure Smith knew it" part of the story.

    It's just foolish to use the fact you carry to intimidate a person absent a credible threat at hand. If you do, be the first to call LE.

    Yup. The guy didn't deserve to be hassled by the cops nor denied his concealed carry permit, but he couldn't have handled the situation with his tenant more wrong. What a doof.
