What if I have a Restraining Order against me after I get my CCW License issued?

Having a Restraining Order, temporary or permanent, places you on a prohibited list- Penal Code Section 26185(a)(2) -Prohibiting you by state and federal law from possessing, receiving, owning, or purchasing a firearm.  A letter informing you that your CCW License is suspended will be mailed and you will need to surrender the license. 

To reinstate the license, you will need to reapply and resubmit fingerprints to clear the status with our department and the State of California.
