FORKS —The Forks Chamber of Commerce issued a statement Friday decrying the harassment of a Spokane family accused of being members of Antifa while near Sequim a gun store owner said he had armed guards because of a threat he received after making comments that Antifa was coming to the North Olympic Peninsula.

Seth Larson, owner of FREDS Guns 2.0 in Carlsborg, had urged people to carry guns to a protest organized in Sequim to protect Sequim businesses from Antifa, a political protest movement comprising autonomous groups in militant opposition to fascism. He said he had heard Antifa was busing in protesters

He later apologized for what he called a "knee-jerk reaction," saying the protest was peaceful.
