Tolik, as you know, VT and Maine have much in common. Maine is gun friendly, though you do need a “shall issue” license for concealed carry I believe. Northern New England is just a different mindset than Southern New England even if other parts of the country lump us all in together. Different demographics and maybe the low population density of VT/NH/ME vs MA/RI/CT drives much of the difference. 3 substantially rural States vs 3 substantially urban States can make for big differences. I’ll be heading down to MA this afternoon and though where I used to live has all the stereotypical New England charm, it always feel good when I come back across the border. If I didn’t live in VT, Maine would be my next choice.
