71. Who indeed.
Relationships extend well beyond just parties. People have friends, lovers, business associates, relatives, housesitters, babysitters, and who knows what else. And all of those people may know each other. How is the owner to control that information and how are the authorities to determine if he or she failed in their responsibility? Or if not the owner even another of who knows how many people who had rightful access to the weapon?

If we are to hold the owner legally responsible for access, we have to give him or her some exculpatory remedy. I don't know what that remedy would be. Ultimately we are left with Ed's word against Joe's, which gets us nowhere.
