    I have just received a formal reply from the Attorney General of Vermont regarding ALL VISITORS to the State of Vermont.

    Subject: Visitors' Handgun Carry Requirements?
    Date: Sun, 3 Apr 2011 13:31:34 -0500


    Attorney General of Vermont
    [email protected]

    Sirs:

    I am trying to determine the requirement for non-resident visitors to Vermont for concealed carry.
    Vermont law uses the undefined word "person", without specifying residency.

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/arkansas.pdf
    Arkansas State Police | Regulatory Services

    Arkansas State Police | Regulatory Services
    These two sites disagree as to the status of Vermont.
    One map says that Vermont does accept AR CCW.
    ASP says that Vermont does NOT honor the AR CCW.

    Vermont law uses the undefined term "person" in their statutes.
    The Office of the Attorney General of Vermont | Gun Laws
    Vermont
    V.S.A. §4003 Carrying dangerous weapons
    A person who carries a dangerous or deadly weapon, openly or concealed, with the intent or avowed purpose of injuring a fellow man, or who carries a dangerous or deadly weapon within any state institution or upon the grounds or lands owned or leased for the use of such institution, without the approval of the warden or superintendent of the institution, shall be imprisoned not more than two years or fined not more than $200.00, or both.

    Thank you for any assistance you can give.

    It is legal for you to carry openly or concealed in Vermont. Loaded or unloaded.(The gun, not you.) G.O.Vt.

    I should clarify that I was talking about hand guns. Long guns can not be kept loaded in your car, only hand guns
    may be stored loaded in a vehicle. If you would like all the gun laws of Vermont ,please check out our website. We have Cindy Hill's book for sale with everything regarding Vermont gun laws in it.www.gunownersofvermont.org. You may carry on your person if you are a non-resident for self protection. This excludes schools,court houses,banks,and any federally owned property.You can not carry any deadly weapon with the intent to harm someone which is what law you quoted.Hope this helps.Ilse

    VT doesn't recognize any state's permits....but that is because no one needs a permit to carry in VT.

    Out of VT, AK, AZ and WY...WY is the only one that limits Concealed Carry without a permit to residents of the state.

    within 1000' of a school and you violate Federal law, however.

    Technically, yes. But will this law be realistically enforced? Probably not. I don't think the law has been tested in court yet.

    I live right next to a school (High School) it's maybe 12-30' away from my house. I have never had a problem.

    Does the NH bill require a person to be a resident of NH in order to conceal without a permit? That's the specific flaw we mentioned in Wyoming's "constitutional carry" law.
