I would first stay somewhere else for a while, someone that he doesn't know. Tell your boss what is going on and change your phone number.  Carry a can of mace and some kind of a club. Depending on your job, they can usually tell security, if they have it there.  Record all of your phone calls if at all possible for proof.  I think you can get a restraining order, if you tell them that you fear for your life. Play hardball with him. Don't show him you have any fear.

I was in the EXACT same situation.  First, if you can afford it, get a lawyer.  Get them to write a letter and have it hand delivered saying if they contact you again, you will file an antiharassment order.  If he shows up to your house, you immediately call the police.  Even if they don't do anything, ask them to file a report and state that you are fearful of this person.  Tell them he is controlling, harassing and stalking you and owns a gun. Never let this guy know you are scared.  Some of these guys are scared of male authority, some are scared of the cops, some are scared of judges (even though they will say otherwise).  Find out their weakness and protect yourself.  Document document document.

If you live in a state where this is possible get yourself a shotgun for the house, and a concealed handgun permit.
The police are no help. They will only show up after you are dead. You must protect yourself.
This guy could be VERY DANGEROUS.

Not sure how this "adding a coment business" works but he would overpower me in an instant.

Think so Hawk? My wife has a concealed handgun license, and a modicum of training. I can tell you with certainty that she would come out alive. But go ahead. Do nothing. Play the victim.
