Benshot is a niche glassware father and son owned company based in Wisconsin.  Their small business expanded and was able to hire employees and like many small businesses across the nation, has seen great growth due to the economy and tax cuts President Trump put in place.

Benshot is a small business but it nevertheless gives back to foundations it finds aligns with their values.  Specifically, the Travis Manion Foundation that empowers veterans and the families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations.

Our mission is to create unique glassware designs. The “Bulletproof” shot glass started as a father and son project and developed into a family business. Everything we make is our own design and 100% Made in the USA. 

The company has made headlines when they offered each employee a gun for Christmas.  Many publications sought to demonize the gesture and seek to find fault in providing weapons to their employees as a gift, others found the value in it. 

Guns are expensive and a gift like this is far better than a $10 scarf or gift card to the local coffee shop.  The owners not only offered the employees a gift card for the purchase of a gun of their choice, but a mandated gun safety course prior to receiving it.  

Giving employees their choice of a gun as a gift is part of an effort to promote personal safety and team building.

Promoting personal safety and empowering their employees was the goal of this Christmas gift.  With gun control being the topic of discussion nationwide with the extreme left advocating to take away guns from legal gun owners and suggesting a gun-less America this company has started a conversation of responsible gun ownership again. 

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.

There are many who advocate a nation with disarmed citizens.  Many of them voiced their opinion on the company’s choice of Christmas Bonus on social media.

For us, now, we have an entire armed staff. I think thatā€™s pretty good.

Personally, I would be over the moon if I received a gun for Christmas.  As a woman, I would feel empowered and I would feel a sense of safety knowing that I could defend my friends and family if ever such a need arose. #’Merica

The second amendment was created so that the people of the United States had weapons to defend themselves from the government if ever the government got so powerful to take away their rights as citizens.  When our Bill of Rights was created the First Amendment was created first because like the first President of the United States said : 

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

George Washington

The second amendment- The Right to Bear Arms was put in place to protect the first amendment.  In a period of time where all our rights are being chipped away by corrupt government officials it is imperative we review, understand and get up to speed with what our forefathers foresaw.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
