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.
