Homer has a gun collection that he is very proud of. Bart, Homer’s young son, is fascinated by his father's collection to the point where Homer must keep his guns locked up to make sure that Bart does not get his hands on them. One day, Homer is taking target practice with his vintage Civil War era pistol. After he has finished, he replaces the gun in its proper rack. However, Homer forgets to both unload the gun, and lock the door leading to the gun rack. Bart and his friend Millhouse get into the gun rack and start playing with the different guns. Bart is playing with the Civil War pistol when it goes off. Millhouse is accidentally shot and seriously injured. If Millhouse’s parents sue Homer, they will probably:
Choice 1 Win, because the gun belonged to Homer
Choice 2 Win, because Homer failed to prevent Bart’s foreseeable use of inherently dangerous instrument
Choice 3 Lose, because playing with guns is an adult activity
Choice 4 Lose, because the shooting was an accident
