I want to voice my agreement with the opinions given in the article "Banning, Taxing Ammo: Can't Hurt" (Nov. 15). As technology continues to grow, handguns and firearms continue to improve. To compensate, the laws must become tougher and more restricting to cut down on the increasing threat of violence. I hope our government will take ideas, (such as) taxing bullets and passing laws requiring waiting periods, into consideration, to help cut down on gun violence. I know passing laws will not completely solve the gun problem in America, but it sure is a step in the right direction.

Ron Tugnutt made 70 saves for the Quebec Nordiques in a 3-3 tie against the Boston Bruins Thursday night at Boston. The Bruins' 73 shots were 10 shy of the NHL record of 83, set by Boston in a 3-2 victory over Chicago on March 4, 1941. Boston's Cam Neely suggested Tugnutt take a bow in front of the Boston fans, and Turgnutt complied. "I've never been in a situation before where an opposing player told me to take a bow in his own building," Tugnutt said. Pittsburgh 5, N.Y.
