The four physical propagating states with "spins" up to six of the second massive level of the closed bosonic string are found to form a large gauge multiplet. This is demonstrated by the existence of gauge transformations induced by the type II zero-norm states at this mass level, it is argued that this is a σ-model three loop result for the second massive level and is a general feature for higher massive levels at each fixed mass.
