Wisconsin company gets employee's a great Christmas gift!

2nd amendment guarantee’s the right to own and bear arms. So I completely applaud what this one company in Wisconsin is doing:

Giving employees their choice of revolver as a gift is part of an effort to promote personal safety and team building, Ben Wolfgram, who co-owns Hortonville-based BenShot, said Tuesday.

Only 16 people, but guess what, that’s 16 more armed citizens. And the company is doing it the right way. Requiring a safety course before the employee’s get the weapons.

At least two employees initially declined the gift but are considering accepting it after taking a gun-safety course that company officials required before giving the guns, Wolfgram said.

Next they all need to try and get concealed carry permits.

Now does anyone see what’s missing from the article? It’s so big you might miss it.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from the Son. What if Christmas…perhaps…comes instead from a gun?

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. And your choice of revolver.

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

Truly reflects the joy and holiness of the season.

Can we do away with the fakeness of RW Christmas Christianity now?

When out in the den there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
I grabbed my sweet Mossberg, all shiny and black,
Chambered a shell with a sudden “ker-CHACK!”
I tip-toed downstairs, in search of a prowler
Expecting the worst, or perhaps something fouler,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a wizened old man eating cookies and beer,
I lowered my barrel, level and quick,
And by mistake on that night blew away ol’ St. Nick.

This kind of seems like a War on Christmas. The real Christmas. Not the Walmart Christmas the shallow Christians want to save.

I assume they’re “giving” them a gun through an FFL.

So for any employee who doesn’t wan’t to have a gun, or family who doesn’t want one in their home, how is this a good gift?

I personally try to get gifts that I know people want based on their hobbies or interests. But maybe that’s just me…

I’ve given and received guns for Christmas. We’ve had banquets that the door prizes were guns, the proceeds of which went towards Christmas presents for underprivileged kids. The pious nose approach is laughable.

Good for them. Don’t take it. The article said a few had refused the gift…but they’re warming up to it. And that scares the hell out of some.
