Call it a “Merry Christmas from the Second Amendment.” A company in Wisconsin has given each of their employees a handgun as a Christmas bonus.

The company, known as Ben Shot, makes novelty glassware embedded with a bullet. They said in a statement to the press that they believe that giving their employees a choice of handguns as a gift, is part of an effort to promote team building and personal safety.

The company has 16 full-time employees, including several veterans, and some who have never fired a gun. This is the first time the company decided to give employees a handgun. The father-son business started in 2015 in a small garage workshop in a village of 3,000 residents, 100 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

Several employees were excited about the Christmas gift, and feel that it will empower them and keep them safe. Yet, at least two employees did state they initially declined the gift but considered accepting it after taking a gun safety course that company executives required before gifting the guns.

Employees had the opportunity to choose which type of gun they wanted from a list of those with a value of up to $500. Some chose smaller, less expensive firearms, while others picked larger ones, which allowed to company to have some money left over. The executives used the savings to buy additional equipment like holsters and ammunition, which they also shared among the employees.

The company executives admit that in these times of so many mass shootings, even in the workplace, that their gifting of guns could be considered controversial by some. However, the owners stated they weren’t worried about workplace violence since the “business has a small staff and all employees know each other well.”

  1. Good for them! Crooks will think twice, or more, before robbing this place!
    Unarmed people are like sheep to someone with bad intentions.

  2. Love it!! Promoting preservation of one of the Fundamental Rights outlines in the Constitutions Bill of Rights plus a course for gun safety is an incredible gift!

  3. Lucky America (in certain respects).
    We in Germany are not allowed to own arms. The regime wants us to be defenseless.
    Only criminals (especially immigrants) may have guns, knives, machetes etc. as they
    don’t care for German laws.

  4. I wish other companies had this attitude. Isn’t it odd that the places with the strictest gun control laws have the highest crime rates.
    I hope CEO’s from other companies see this.

  5. Lucky employees !
    Glad to hear that they went through a handgun safety course.!!

    This company is Making America Great Again!!!!

  6. Since house is a joke, a GREAT idea! Uphold the 2nd amendment! Train everyone correctly.

  7. Interesting Christmas gift option for these employees! Appropriate?
    Well, that answer is in the eyes of both the giver and receiver.
    Great that there were gun safety classes offered, but the use of any
    weapon is only as good as the marksmanship training of the user.
    Is the company going to install a shooting range as well for the
    development of skilled accuracy/proficiency for their employees?

  8. Good common sense no creep is going into a place to shoot or use any other weapon even a simple rock knowing the people are going to be able to fight back and kill them.

  9. I’m a devout supporter of the 2nd Amendment. This one Amendment allows us to keep all of the others. Lose the 2nd Amendment and the rest topple and follow like dominoes. As for guns as Christmas gifts? If a proper background was conducted so as to NOT give one to a Nutball, I see no harm.

  10. I would be thrilled if I received a handgun for Christmas from my employer. We are living in a dangerous culture of ignorance, violence and and indoctrinated sheep without the ability for employ common sense or critical thinking. Consequence for criminal acts are becoming a thing of the past as Obama appointed leftist judges give crumble more rights then victims.

  11. The only basis for giving its employees handgun as a present for any occasion would be if the company was a mortuary about to go bankrupt and did so to promote business!

  12. I would like to know what types of guns were chosen why is your report incomplete. I do agree is gun safety training which includes shooting, cleaning maintenance, and keeping a gun safely out of reach from children and safe from theft. I also believe in all Americans being allowed to carry openly especially with the fanatical liberal Democrats running around unchecked. Strictly for self defense.

  13. Might any of this companies employees be barred, due to past activities, from the possession ,use or ownership of firearms? I assume that the firm looked into that aspect.

  14. We know, Mike, and sorry for your troubles but we see that most of Europe is that way anymore, and we’re also aware of the reason for it which is to push each country’s own people into servitude under the masters the leadership thinks they are using said criminal and immigrants……AND that’s what the lefties are trying here.
