Juveniles Are Prohibited From Carrying Firearms in Louisiana.
ü The Laws of Louisiana prohibit a juvenile from knowingly carrying or possessing any handgun.
ü A juvenile is considered to be a person under 17 years of age.
ü It is against Louisiana Law for anyone to sell, or deliver any type of a firearm to a juvenile. Lack of knowledge of the minor’s age is not a defense.
ü However, there is no minimum age to possess rifles and shotguns in Louisiana. Federal age restrictions impose stricter limits.
