There are bad people – very bad people – in the world. The massacre at Fort Hood is the lastest evidence of terrorism aimed at the U.S. But there are also good people – very good people. Good, brave, heroic people like Sgt. Kimberly Munley who took down Malik Hasan before he slaughtered anyone else. But in order to protect the good people from the bad, we can’t be defenseless. We can’t be unaware. We can’t be shy or hang our heads, already defeated. We have to stand up, be politically incorrect, and tell the truth. We need to stand up for the Second Amendment and pound away at the fact that Americans need to take their own safety and the safety of the ones they love into their own hands. That is the mission of the wonderful guys at carrysafely.com and Kapguns.com. And God Bless them that they stand up everyday for freedom.
It was a wonderful day of shooting with these great guys and I hope to do it again soon. Watch the video to see what happens when you hand a guy like me a firearm…All I can say is thank God these serious gun professionals were on stand-by!
Tonight’s episode of Sportsaholic is a special one and here’s a shout out to all my Second Amendment friends and all the guys at CarrySafely.com and Kapguns.com. These are the best guys ever…and taught me a valuable lesson: if you’ve never fired a Barrett 50 BMG – you just haven’t lived!
Here’s the lowdown on what’s on tonight’s show and my support for our constitutional right to bear arms for defense, for sport, and as a reminder to our too, too powerful government that – its power exists at behest of the people and not the other way around. Enjoy the episode!

This is just a little reminder from me to the people of Illinois, the media, and Alexi Giannoulias himself of how he punked out on helping needy kids from Mercy Holmes. He was too chicken to take me up on my boxing bout at the Ringside for Mercy’s Sake that takes place tonight…and in so doing, he took a cowardly pass on helping raise $26K for kids. No honor, no U.S. Senate seat. How do you like that Alexi?

ABC 7 Story on the Break-In
BREAK-IN AT KELLY’S CHICAGO CAMPAIGN OFFICE
Police Search Scene at GOP Candidate for Comptroller’s Office
(CHICAGO) – At 3:30PM on Sunday, William J. Kelly, candidate for Illinois comptroller and his campaign manager, Steve Ruggiero, arrived at their campaign office at 1000 N. Milwaukee to discover it had been forcibly broken into.
Missing items of political relevance include ward maps with campaign strategy, volunteer information and lists. Other missing items include fax/modem equipment, champagne and cigars. Kelly has filed a police report and the police have dusted for fingerprints and are searching for possible suspects.
Kelly has been an outspoken critic of U.S. Senate candidate and Obama money man, Alexi Giannoulias. Kelly produced an ambush video on Giannoulias and his ACORN-tainted SEIU endorsement that has irked members of the Giannoulias campaign. Video clip available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aedjhXvRa5c
”The police are conducting an investigation; we don’t know if the break-in was politically motivated, however, politically sensitive items were removed from our office. Regardless, this campaign is and always has been a campaign of reform vs. corruption. If anyone thinks that this break-in will intimidate me, they don’t know me very well. It will only make me campaign harder,” said Kelly.
GOP Candidate William Kelly Says Summit Offers a “Teaching Moment”
Statement by William J. Kelly, Candidate for Illinois Comptroller
Today, Illinois Comptroller Candidate William J. Kelly is inviting Sun-Times columnist and Capitol Fax blogger Rich Miller to a beer summit to discuss their differences and the issues.
“Rich, President Obama has showed us that sitting down with a beer to discuss your philosophical difference is a way towards healing. The time for partisanship has long passed. It’s time for us to really do something for the people of Illinois, the people who have suffered long enough. I’m asking you – I’m inviting you for a beer summit here at the Dank Haus.”
“I know you didn’t exactly like my video interview of U.S. Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias on his ACORN-tainted SEIU endorsement, but this discussion could offer us and others a teaching moment. It’s time to move past our differences,” says Kelly.
William J. Kelly is running on a reform platform to be Illinois’ first “Activist” Comptroller, pledging full transparency and a new era of state government that has been plagued by corruption, abusive spending practices, and the glare of national scrutiny.
Cited by the Washington Times as a new breed of conservative media entity, William J. Kelly was previously the Executive Director of the National Taxpayers Union of Illinois. He ran against Rep. Bobby Rush (D) in 1994 and exposed the Congressman’s $50,000 in back taxes, child support, and unpaid parking tickets. Kelly is the host and executive producer of the TV series, “Sportsaholic” and the Emmy award-winning “Upscale TV,” which just completed a successful three-year run on FOX.
