I live in NY, don't consider NY.
I grew up in Mass when gun laws were reasonable. A permit let you carry any gun, no registration needed. Those days are gone forever. I refuse to go back. Even NY is better.
Vermont is excellent. No gun laws. I think the only gun law says something like 'it is illegal to carry a gun with the intent to commit a crime." Vermont has no other restrictions. It's not so far to Boston
