Various "owners" of a handgun of unusual design, which was used in a murder six months earlier and then dumped. Two punks use it in a robbery-shooting that leads to one of the thieves also being injured. When media coverage reveals the nature of the still-unsolved murder from before (of a state senator), the leader of the gang tries to reclaim the gun as it passes from hand to hand, and to sell it back to the killer (the son of another state senator who was the victim's political enemy).
