Vermont does not:
- Penalize a firearms dealer for failing to conduct the federally required background check on a purchaser;
- Prohibit a person from obtaining a firearm with the intent to provide it to someone the person knows is ineligible to possess a firearm;
- Prohibit any person from giving false information or offering false evidence of his or her identity in purchasing or otherwise securing delivery of a firearm; or
- Have any other laws aimed at firearms trafficking.
