carrying a rifle

If a 18 year old wanted to carry a rifle because he could not own a handgun, is that legal. I was thinking in terms of a class 2 or 3, a MP5,AR-15 or something?

PS:not concealed.

Here in Indiana, yes that would be legal, but they would be asking for a LOT of trouble.

Sorry, we are not going to engage in discussing what seems to be a very risky behavior.

I caution the OP, that continued posts on how an underage person can get a gun or parade around with one - even if legal - doesn't seem to convey the correct attitude.

Find a program for young shooters and/or hunters. Get parental consent and follow the laws and common sense.

If an 18 year old walked down the street with a MP5 that is full auto, expect to be at the end of the local SWAT team and with good reason (spare me the RKBA rationalizations).

Become of age and get a concealed carry permit or license. Also, take the appropriate courses.
