Allan Lewis is a wealthy reporter for the Daily Bulletin, and while he is the papers best reporter, he never takes his job seriously and can often be found slacking off. After a strange series of murders, Lewis is put on assignment and he finds the story of the most recent murder interesting as it included finger prints that had seven fingers. Finding a feather on the crime scene, Lewis takes it before the police can see it, believing that this could be a lead in the story that will make him able to scoop the competition. Going back to the scene of the crime at night, he catches someone trying to steal the safe from the murdered man's house, however he is attacked by some strange feather wearing men and the thief gets away.

The scientist leaves it in Lewis's trust and when he rushes back to the Bulletin he finds out that he scientist was murdered just moments after he left.

Realizing the benefits of using this gun to fight crime, Lewis decides to take the law into his own hands. Disguising his face and dawning a costume he goes to the home of the next target. When an attacker arrives, he shoots him dead, but does not capture his leader. Learning of the next intended target, Lewis in his reporter guise tries to get the story but is shooed away.
