Editor's note: The Sun also plans to run an op-ed by Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan in the coming weeks.  This week, we marked the one-year anniversary of a lifesaving law taking effect, the Firearm Safety Act. But, Marylanders still stand at a crossroads between two very different futures for our state. In 2013, in response to the tragic Newtown school shooting and the all too common acts of gun violence on our own streets, we took real action to protect our communities by passing some of the toughest gun safety laws in the nation.

I went on YouTube to watch a gruesome video of a wild animal called a fisher, or fisher cat, attacking a silver fox - someone told me it would be educational, if you must know why - but I had to watch Anthony Brown tear into Larry Hogan first. It was a 30-second political ad that opened with a question: "Who is Larry Hogan?" and went on to say Hogan, the Republican candidate for governor in November's general election, opposes a woman's right to choose an abortion, even in the case of rape or incest.

Last in a series of profiles of gubernatorial candidates. As Anthony G. Brown runs for governor, he often appears to be walking a political tightrope. If the lieutenant governor tips too far in the direction of independence, he risks looking disloyal to Gov. Martin O'Malley, whose firm support has given him a leg up in the Democratic primary race. If he shows too much deference to O'Malley, he risks looking more like a sidekick than a leader in his own right. So far, if the polls are correct, Brown hasn't tumbled.

ANNAPOLIS -- Mayor Alfred A. Hopkins said yesterday that a Fire Department investigation of on-duty sex among city firefighters was "tainted" and reversed the firing of a 24-year veteran lieutenant implicated in the probe.But he maintained that although Lt. Kenneth Rowe is the second firefighter whose firing in the sex scandal has been reversed, the investigation of other fire and police officers in the scandal was sound because several have admitted involvement.Mr. Hopkins said the acknowledgment by a fire investigator last month that he had had sex while off duty with a woman involved in the case "gives cause for critics to correctly call the investigation tainted, but they are not correct in assuming all the facts are also tainted."

FORT LEWIS, Wash. -- A military judge abruptly declared a mistrial yesterday in the court-martial of an Army lieutenant who refused orders to go to Iraq, handing a temporary reprieve to the elated officer and leaving military prosecutors visibly stunned and angry with the ruling. The decision by the judge, Lt. Col. John Head, turned on the contentious issue of whether factual stipulations agreed to earlier by the prosecutors and the defense team amounted to a confession of guilt by the lieutenant, 28-year-old Ehren Watada, on the Army's charges of failure to deploy.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown's campaign for governor distributes a mailer to voters questioning opponent Douglas F. Gansler's "puzzling priorities. " What the mailer says: It juxtaposes two issues that have surfaced in the June 24 Democratic primary. "Why does Doug Gansler want a $1.6 billion tax giveaway for corporations when he says we can't afford universal full day Pre-K?" the mailer says. The flier contains the words "reckless and irresponsible" in large block lettering and says Gansler, the state attorney general, "doesn't share our values" about full-day pre-kindergarten.

The hard-fought campaign for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination this year has provided voters with a difficult decision. All three of the major candidates bring formidable and unique strengths to the contest, and none is without serious flaws. After watching the race closely, conducting extensive interviews with each candidate and considering their stands on the issues, we conclude that Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is the best choice. We did not come to this endorsement easily. Douglas F. Gansler has proven himself an able public servant during his long career, first as Montgomery County state's attorney and now as attorney general.
