Seeing that the odds are stacked against the purposely provoked Billy Horn, the Kid intervenes and helps Billy flee the scene.
Once reaching safety, Billy explains his father Colonel Horn founded Horn City after the war and got into business with Buzz Nelson. Nelson introduced the Colonel to Jim McQuade whom he convinced Horn to make sheriff. Horn was uninterested in business affairs and trusted Buzz Nelson to take care of things, until one day Horn was murdered and Billy framed for the murder as he and his father often did not agree on things.
Having heard Billy's story, Two-Gun Kid agrees to help him clear his name. The pair are soon ambushed by ranchers who have been convinced by Buzz Nelson to go after Billy Horn, forcing the pair to fight their way free. They manage to reach Nelson's ranch where they disguise themselves as Mexican sheep herders in order to get up close. Dropping their cover in the confusion, Two-Gun Kid and Billy Horn are locked in a gun battle with Buzz's men, but Nelson manages to escape.
Buzz Nelson rushes back to town and he and Jim McQuade try to deputize a posse to deal with the two gunslingers, but find most of the men unwilling to clash with the Two-Gun Kid. When the Kid and Billy arrive in town there is another gun fight. In the ensuing bloodshed, Buzz attempts to flee town with a cache of stolen money, but Two-Gun confronts him and forces him to gun fight with Billy Horn. Billy easily wins the duel, killing Buzz Nelson in the process. After thanking the Two-Gun Kid, Billy promises the Kid that he will run Horn City as an honest town.

When they arrive, the Kid prevents an altercation between one of Mooney's men and a railroad worker. With tempers flaring, Two-Gun suggests to McCune that the workers should unionize so that they can deal with any of Mooney's men that might cause trouble.
However, there is soon an altercation and a railman is gunned down by one of Mooney's men. The rail workers are about to hang the shooter when Mooney steps in demanding a stop to it. Two-Gun Kid steps in and agrees and has the man draw his gun instead. The Kid turns out to be the faster draw, shooting the gunman dead. Two-Gun then warns Mooney to pack up his men and leave.

When they arrive in Mooneyville they find the town completely deserted and Mooney completely insane and realize that his ambitions were those of a madman.
