It's worth noting that Minnesota has no such thing as a "conceal and carry permit." In Minnesota we issue "permits to carry" whether it's open carry or concealed carry is up to the permit holder.

So will this guy lose his permit to carry? People who know how to handle guns don't shoot themselves (I've handled guns since I was 10 and I've never shot myself and everyone I know who handles guns have never shot themselves). This guy clearly doesn't know how to properly handle a gun and if can shoot himself accidentally he is a bigger threat to everyone else than to any bad guy that may one day run across his path - actually the bad guy might be better of with this guy around as he might shoot himself trying to engage a bad guy and do the bad guy's work for him.
