What is meant by "direct supervision and control of a responsible adult" in I-594?

I-594 exempts from the background check requirement the temporary transfer of a firearm to a person who is under eighteen years of age for lawful hunting, sporting, or educational purposes while under the direct supervision and control of a responsible adult who is not prohibited from possessing firearms. The initiative does not define “direct supervision and control of a responsible adult.” WDFW believes that direct supervision would require that the responsible adult be physically present and oversee the actions of the person under 18, during the period in which the temporary transfer of the firearm is in effect.
