Hortonville business gives employees guns for Christmas

A Wisconsin-based novelty glassware company with a gun culture tie-in is giving back to their employees this holiday season.

BenShot, which specializes in crafting glasses that look as if they have taken a slug — complete with the bullet still in the side of the glass — has presented each of their staff with the gift of a gun this year. Ben Wolfgram, who co-owns the Hortonville-based company, told WISN that to both comply with state law and allow employees to get the gun of their choice, they handed out $8,000 in gift cards.

“For him to stand for something and for the company to stand for keeping us safe is really awesome for them to do that,” said employee Chelsea Priest of Wolfgram.

The Appleton Post-Crescent reported that two employees declined the gift but are reconsidering after taking a gun safety course provided by the company to employees before getting their guns.

As a side, Wolfgram holds the gesture promotes safety and team building.

“For us, now, we have an entire armed staff,” Wolfgram said. “I think that’s pretty good.”
