Only this text you cite (29..304) is under a headline " "Restrictions on hunting and use of firearms" and headlines define in what context the text below is used. If the context is hunting then one coud argue that a person who does not use his gun for hunting is not obliged to respect any of the restrictions mentioned in the 29.304. And I also noted that you did not answer the question whether of a person 12 years and above is permitted to use a long-barell gun unsupervisedGA can speak for himself. I simply answered the hypothetical you keep bringing up.
29.304 is, like 948.60 3c, quite clear in it's language. "No person under 12 years of age may have in his or her possession or control any firearm" yada yada supervision training etc. If it was the intent of the legislature to prohibit a 17 year old from simply possessing a rifle or shotgun, 940.60 3c wouldn't provide them an exception, like it does when it later goes on to clarify who is restricted from possessing one in what circumstances in 29.304, which only applies to those under 16.
