Vermont State NFA Rules and Allowable NFA Itemsby National Gun Trusts
Vermont has relatively few laws regarding NFA items; however, it is illegal for anyone other than a law enforcement officer or National Guard member operating in his or her official capacity to possess a suppressor. It is also a state-level offense to possess an NFA item in violation of federal law.

A person who manufactures, sells, uses, or possesses with intent to sell or use an appliance known as or used for a gun silencer shall be fined $25.00 for each offense. The provisions of this section shall not prevent the use or possession of gun silencers by:
(1) a certified, full-time law enforcement officer or department of fish and wildlife employee in connection with his or her duties and responsibilities and in accordance with the policies and procedures of that officer's or employee's agency or department; or
(2) the Vermont National Guard in connection with its duties and responsibilities. (Amended 2009, No. 154 (Adj. Sess.), § 238f, eff. June 3, 2010.)
