It's unfortunate that hundreds of guns purchased in the weeks before Maryland's stricter firearms regulations went into effect last year ended up in the hands of people who should never have been allowed to own them. Most of the weapons have since been recovered, but one was sold to a man later accused of using it in a carjacking in Prince George's County, and others were purchased by people with criminal records, a history of mental illness or other disqualifying factors. Yet the fault for those failures doesn't lie with the law or with state police efforts to complete thousands of background checks on gun license applicants in a timely fashion.

WASHINGTON -- House Democrats elevated Representative David E. Bonior of Michigan to the rank of majority whip yesterday, brushing aside the candidacy of Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland for the third-ranking post in the party leadership.OC Mr. Bonior, an eight-term lawmaker who has served four years aschief deputy whip, defeated Mr. Hoyer, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, by a decisive 160-109 vote. The new whip is to take the place in the leadership hierarchy currently occupied by Representative William H. Gray III of Pennsylvania, who is to quit Congress in September to head the United Negro College Fund.

HALLANDALE, Fla. -- Polished and lined up like soldiers in their ranks, the size-4 racing boots belonging to Earlie Fires are the epitome of the attention a good valet shows for his jockey's equipment.Unlike the expensive boots, Fires' whips sit atop his shelves, in no particular order.Each pair of boots costs about five times as much a whip and gets considerably more care.But veteran valet Buddy Hasher knows which piece of equipment a jockey treasures more."One day, I left a pair of Earlie's boots in the dryer and forgot about them," Hasher says.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. -- In a windowless courthouse basement in this depressed Philadelphia suburb, Steny H. Hoyer was holding forth on the threat to life posed by fake antique firearms. An unlikely issue and an unlikely setting for Hoyer, a congressman more easily found roaming the halls of Capitol Hill. But the Southern Maryland Democrat traveled here to help Rep. Joseph M. Hoeffel, who's battling to save his congressional seat in the fall elections. By aiding Hoeffel, Hoyer was trying to cement votes for his own tough race.

WASHINGTON -- House Democrats were scheduled to choose today between Rep. Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland and Rep. David E. Bonior of Michigan in what was expected to be a close election for majority whip, the third-ranking House leadership position.Both camps exuded confidence yesterday even as they lobbied at the last minute for votes."We feel good about it," said Charles Seigel, Hoyer's press secretary. "They're very close; there's really no way of knowing. It'll come down to the wire."Bonior was seen by some as the front-runner because he began lobbying for the position first, even before the current whip, Rep. William H. Gray 3rd, D-Pa.

I did not think Sunday-afternoon football, one of the great pleasures of my life, could get any worse than watching the CBS team of Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf calling the game back in October with the Houston Texans whipping the Ravens. But it got worse Sunday with Gumbel and Dierdorf at the microphone while Denver dismantled the Ravens 34-17. It was worse, because the offense and Joe Flacco now look totally lost. But I'll leave it to The Sun writers who cover the team to dissect the problems on the field and in the locker room.

Ugly holiday sweaters are bad enough. But ugly holiday sweater cookies ? Isn't that taking things a bit too far? Apparently not for Bel Air High and MICA alums Brennen and Zoe Lukas, whose perhaps-too-colorful Christmas confections were spotlighted on NBC's "Today" show this morning. During a segment on gifts under $30, "style expert" Lilliana Vazquez gave the cookies a quick shout-out. "How cute are these cookies?" Vazquez gushed, noting they were available in both Christmas and Hanukkah themes.

Local coverage of Hurricane Sandy has been going on since Friday night -- if you want to be technical about it. But it really kicked into gear over the weekend. Saturday night, WBFF Fox45 messed up stretches of the World Series to run mostly unnecessary crawls about the impending storm. I don't mind needless information in crawls -- it has become the norm on cable -- but every time a crawl appeared, the audio of the game from Fox was screwed up. During several stretches, it was a full five seconds behind the action viewers saw on the field.

WASHINGTON - A bitter competition between two prominent politicians with deep Maryland roots is headed toward a climax this fall that could propel one to the top ranks of national leadership. For more than 2 1/2 years, Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, of Southern Maryland, and Rep. Nancy D'Alesandro Pelosi, of San Francisco by way of Baltimore, have been jockeying for position in a race for the post of Democratic whip, the No. 2 position in the party's House leadership. Their Democratic colleagues will finally be asked to make a choice between them within the next several months if the current whip, David E. Bonior, steps aside, as expected, to concentrate on a bid for Michigan governor.

WASHINGTON - House Majority Leader Dick Armey's expected announcement today that he won't seek re-election next year has already touched off a race among Republicans to succeed him in which the influential majority whip, Tom DeLay, is heavily favored. Armey, 61, a folksy nine-term representative from suburban Dallas who speaks as often of fishing, football and his family as he does of legislation, has told friends he will retire next year from his safe seat to spend time on other pursuits.
