Scratching my head on this one:
18 U.S.C. 922(x)(2)
Knowing possession of handgun by juvenile
1 year ( 924(a)(6)(A)

So, hypothetically, if I took my 17 yr old daughter to the range and let her shoot a handgun, I could go to prison for a year??

Why do we need a cheat sheet noting the penalties for a raft of things we aren't going to do? Kind of reminds me of the sort of thread that starts out, "What's the least provocation that would justify..."

Bad for a gun rights board.

This, I don't get it either.

Because more than once I've ended up in arguments that something is already illegal.

Also when it comes to arguing for something, it can be handy for being able to quickly look up where something is and find the exact text. Part of fighting for ones rights means having a good understanding how they are being stepped upon.

^^ I can see that point.

Far too many "new" gun control provisions are either useless, unenforceable as written (requiring further steps to ensure viability) or already covered in the law. Point conceded there.

Perhaps introducing the thread in that way would have produced the tone the OP intended instead of the one some of us perceived.

No, you have to read the entire statute - and I will apologize in advance for the lack of formatting:

(x)(1) It shall be unlawful for a person to sell, deliver, or
otherwise transfer to a person who the transferor knows or has
reasonable cause to believe is a juvenile -
(A) a handgun; or
(B) ammunition that is suitable for use only in a handgun.
(2) It shall be unlawful for any person who is a juvenile to
knowingly possess -
(A) a handgun; or
(B) ammunition that is suitable for use only in a handgun.
(3) This subsection does not apply to -
(A) a temporary transfer of a handgun or ammunition to a
juvenile or to the possession or use of a handgun or ammunition
by a juvenile if the handgun and ammunition are possessed and
used by the juvenile -

farming related to activities at the residence of the juvenile
(or on property used for ranching or farming at which the
juvenile, with the permission of the property owner or lessee,
is performing activities related to the operation of the farm
or ranch), target practice, hunting, or a course of instruction
in the safe and lawful use of a handgun;
(ii) with the prior written consent of the juvenile's parent
or guardian who is not prohibited by Federal, State, or local
law from possessing a firearm, except -
(I) during transportation by the juvenile of an unloaded
handgun in a locked container directly from the place of
transfer to a place at which an activity described in clause
(i) is to take place and transportation by the juvenile of
that handgun, unloaded and in a locked container, directly
from the place at which such an activity took place to the
transferor; or
(II) with respect to ranching or farming activities as
described in clause (i), a juvenile may possess and use a
handgun or ammunition with the prior written approval of the
juvenile's parent or legal guardian and at the direction of
an adult who is not prohibited by Federal, State or local law
from possessing a firearm;
(iii) the juvenile has the prior written consent in the
juvenile's possession at all times when a handgun is in the

United States or the National Guard who possesses or is armed
with a handgun in the line of duty;

which the juvenile is an invited guest.
(4) A handgun or ammunition, the possession of which is
transferred to a juvenile in circumstances in which the transferor
is not in violation of this subsection shall not be subject to
permanent confiscation by the Government if its possession by the
juvenile subsequently becomes unlawful because of the conduct of
the juvenile, but shall be returned to the lawful owner when such
handgun or ammunition is no longer required by the Government for
the purposes of investigation or prosecution.
(5) For purposes of this subsection, the term "juvenile" means a
person who is less than 18 years of age.

court shall require the presence of a juvenile defendant's parent
or legal guardian at all proceedings.
(B) The court may use the contempt power to enforce subparagraph
(A).
(C) The court may excuse attendance of a parent or legal guardian
of a juvenile defendant at a proceeding in a prosecution of a
violation of this subsection for good cause shown.
