It is unlawful to carry or possess a loaded rifle or shotgun in or on a motor vehicle within the right of way of a public highway. Exempt are law enforcement officers and hunters who are paraplegic or have a "severe physical disability" and have been issued a permit by the fish and game commissioner.
- Vermont state gun laws

Does that mean I can have one in my car...but not within the right of way of a public highway? (On/off ramps?)

Normally I keep it on the backseat... was wondering if i can stand it up between driver and passanger like in cop cars and still be within the laws. Not that I use it THAT much, but would bring the old mean of riding shotgun back.

In Texas, PA, WA and OR a public highway means any public road. I suspect it is the same way in Vermont.
