The state of Vermont does not require any license or permit to carry a firearm by law abiding citizens.  However, the state of Vermont does not issue a resident license or permit.  Because of this, residents of Vermont who travel outside of their resident state must obtain a non-resident license or permit from some other state, to be able to carry a firearm.  This does not apply to the state of Alaska that has a similar law allowing any law abiding citizen to carry a firearm.
