Via Southwest Wisconsin’s WISN News, “‘The perfect gift:’ Wisconsin company gives employees guns for Christmas”:
A Wisconsin glass-making firm wanting to avoid the impersonal touch of a cash bonus that might be used to pay bills opted to gift each and every employee with a gun of their choice.
Well, to be more accurate, and to keep in line with state law, the father-and-son team at BenShot LLC gave each of employee a gift card with which to purchase their weapon.
“That way the background check was done by the store,” Ben Wolfgram explained to WISN 12 NEWS on Tuesday. “We are a small, close-knit team at BenShot. I want to make sure all of employees are safe and happy – a handgun was the perfect gift.”
The Hortonville-based company has found success on Amazon with its design and manufacture of shot and beer glasses with bullets embedded into the glass. The gift cards to the 16 full-time employees, some of them veterans, cost the company about $8,000, Wolfgram said.

Most workers were excited at the prospect of receiving their handguns, he said.
Employee Chelsea Priest of Green Bay said she feels as if the gift will empower her and will help keep her safe.
“I’ve never been a part of anything like this,” she said.
At least two employees initially declined the gift but are considering accepting it after taking a gun-safety course that company executives required before giving the guns, Wolfgram said.
Wolfgram said he wasn’t worried about workplace violence because his business has a small staff and all of the employees know each other well.
“For us, now, we have an entire armed staff,” he said. “I think that’s pretty good.”
