The owner claims he "lost" the gun? I think the WA law, like the majority of gun laws/restrictions is BS, but, how did he "lose" a "gun?" I don't lock up all of my guns. I have several that I keep out and where I can get to them quickly if needed. Other guns I keep in the safe. In over 40 years I have never, ever "lost" any of my guns. I've never had any of them stolen either.
