PTSD and concealed weapon permit

Question:

I'm a Vietnam Era Army vet. I have permit for a concealed weapon for California. If I apply for PTSD through the VA and If I did receive a disability rating for PTSD , would I lose my CCW permit? Thanks for your answer.

It's really not possible to give you a straightforward answer as there are a lot of different ways this could go. In most cases a PTSD rating doesn't matter unless you've been hospitalized or treated as an inpatient. If you already have a CCW, it's unlikely that you could lose it because of a new rating for PTSD .
