Ipswich, MA asked in Immigration Law and Criminal Law for Vermont

Q: Will a consular ID card and international drivers license allow you to purchase ammunition in the state of Vermont?

I'm having a hard time finding an answer for this question. This is a fictional scenario, but I need to know if a non-U.S. citizen who only has an international drivers license and a consular ID card would be able to purchase ammunition and magazines in the state of Vermont. I see the state of Vermont does not require permits for a firearm purchase but the ATF states an alien admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa is prohibited from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing a firearm or ammunition unless the alien falls within one of the exceptions provided in 18 U.S.C. 922(y)(2). Thank you.
