Open carry of a rifle typically means slung - though I don't think there is a singular definition. In any case, your characterization of what the kid was doing as 'open carry' is in error. What he was shown doing would be considered brandishing if it were a real firearm. Not sure if that applies to replicas. That's the part you are missing.
