    In Virginia a newborn infant can legally OC, as long as an adult is with them. I'm not sure how the issue of possession would be looked at with a minor over the age of 12 who was OCing without adult supervision.

    stay safe.

    18.2-56.2. Allowing access to firearms by children; penalty.
    A. It shall be unlawful for any person to recklessly leave a loaded, unsecured firearm in such a manner as to endanger the life or limb of any child under the age of fourteen. Any person violating the provisions of this subsection shall be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor.
    B. It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly to authorize a child under the age of twelve to use a firearm except when the child is under the supervision of an adult.
