Wisconsin Glassware Company Gifts Employees With Handguns for Christmas
Employees required to take gun safety course.
A company in Wisconsin that produces glassware will be gifting all of its employees with handguns for Christmas to promote safety.
According to the Appleton Post-Crescent, shot glass-maker BenShot decided on the ironic gift to promote team building as well.
Co-owner Ben Wolfgram told the outlet that most of his employees were "excited" to receive their firearm.
"I've never been a part of anything like this," employee Chelsea Priest said.
BenShot advertises "bulletproof" shot glasses on its website, as all of its products are created with a copper bullet embedded into the side.
Wolfgram told the Post-Crescent that each employee had to take a gun safety course prior to receiving their guns.
He said that "at least two employees" declined theirs at first, but are reconsidering after taking the course.
"For us, now, we have an entire armed staff," Wolfgram said. "I think that’s pretty good."
