Vermont Gun Laws

Learn about gun control laws, gun permit requirements, and penalties in Vermont.

In Vermont, adults can purchase and carry a gun—openly or concealed— without a license. However, certain restrictions apply to where you may carry a gun in Vermont. For more information, see Open and Concealed Gun Carrying Laws in Vermont.

Does Vermont Recognize Concealed Carry Gun Permits From Other States?

Yes. Vermont allows purchase and carry of firearms by non-Vermont residents as long as the non-resident follows the federal Gun Control Act of 1968, and the laws of the non-resident’s own state. (85 Vermont Stat. Ann. § 4014 & 4015.)
