    Any person of legal age (not sure but 21?) can carry a handgun openly or concealed with NO PERMIT REQUIRED.
    Doesn't matter which state YOU are from, you're legal in VT.
    Come over from Cali?
    Bring your guns!
    Come up from Maryland?
    Well, now you could buy AND carry guns!
    No permit required!

    I left Florida and a nice security job for this freedom!
    You better believe it baby!

    No reciprocity agreement exists. It's not illegal to carry a gun openly or concealed in Vermont, so no permit is required, so there is no need for a reciprocity agreement.

    Here are Vermont's firearms laws - they will take you about 2 minutes to read in their entirety:

    Age limit is set to 18 (with exceptions) by Federal law 18 USC 922 (x).

    But you can't carry in Vermont within 1000 feet of school property because of the Federal Gun Free School Zones Act of 1995, Title 18 U.S.C Part 1 Chapter 44 Section 922(q) (discussed at length in this thread: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is CURRENTLY banned under Federal Law. (Important) )

    Take a map of Vermont, draw 1000-foot radiuses around every school zone, then you'll know where you can carry in Vermont without a permit.

    Which applies equally as well to Vermont residents as it does out-of-state persons. And, actually, to be correct, the statement should be "you can't carry in Vermont within 1000 feet of school property without violating Federal law". You can carry a loaded handgun within 1000' of school property in Vermont (and everywhere else) and millions of people probably illegally do so every day.

    Our "local boys" came out and stated that it is both unconstitutional AND unenforceable so they will not waste time or resources on it!

    Suck a duck on that one.

    Wow! So if one lives on a street with a school at each end they can't carry the gun? Is that because the only law in effect is federal?

    They can and do carry their loaded guns past the schools. They also violate Federal law when they do, and nobody cares.

    Correct.

    But choosing to violate a federal law - either because you think it is unconstitutional or you are just bent on breaking laws - is much different from carrying a firearm in violation of the law while not knowing it of the law.

    Knowledge is so much better than ignorance regardless of the personal choices one makes.
