If it were me I’d be asking him to pay my legal bills as if not for his False police report I’d not be having these legal problems.
yes this would not lead to good relations but neither dose being arrested because of a irrational fear at the mere sight of a gun.
How is this for a legal strategy? Citizen #1 is peaceably and legally wearing a gun in public. Citizen #2 call cops to report Cit #1. On the basis of the complaint, cops arrest Cit #1 for disorderly conduct while armed. Cit #1 then sues Cit #2 for harrassment since Cit #2 had no legal basis for his complaint.
