Briscoe and Green investigate a shooting rampage in Central Park where all 15 of the victims were female college students. Using the serial number of the gun they've recovered they trace the owner, Dennis Trope, but when the judge dismisses most of their evidence, Jack McCoy has few options open to him. When he learns that the gun could be turned into an automatic weapon using an inexpensive kit you can buy at any gun show, he decides to go after the manufacturer. Despite evidence that the gun manufacturer knew that most of their sales were because of the ease of conversion, it's obvious McCoy is going to have a hard time getting a conviction. Written by
