A Brooklyn man was sentenced to seven years behind bars Thursday for carrying a loaded weapon onto the subway.

Rahmeek Younger, 23, pleaded guilty on Dec. 6 to criminal possession of a weapon for taking a .38 caliber revolver onto the C train last April, and he was sentenced Thursday in Manhattan criminal court.

Cops nabbed Younger after seeing a bulge in his jacket pocket while he was riding a southbound C train. When the train stopped at Canal Street, the officers removed Younger from the train to question him, after which he pushed them away, according to officials.

Younger tried to run away, officials said, but police apprehended him and found the loaded gun inside his jacket.
