That said, I live in the City of Los Angeles. Chances of my getting a LTC are zero so assuming I was carrying it would be illegally. What would happen to a individual in that situation? Not good I would imagine.
If you have a restraining order on file, you can theoretically conceal carry*:

Quote:
(a) A violation of Section 25400 is justifiable when a
person who possesses a firearm reasonably believes that person is in
grave danger because of circumstances forming the basis of a current
restraining order issued by a court against another person who has
been found to pose a threat to the life or safety of the person who
possesses the firearm. This section may not apply when the
circumstances involve a mutual restraining order issued pursuant to
Division 10 (commencing with Section 6200) of the Family Code absent
a factual finding of a specific threat to the person's life or
safety. It is not the intent of the Legislature to limit, restrict,
or narrow the application of current statutory or judicial authority
to apply this or other justifications to a defendant charged with
violating Section 25400 or committing another similar offense.
(b) Upon trial for violating Section 25400, the trier of fact
shall determine whether the defendant was acting out of a reasonable
belief that the defendant was in grave danger.
*Subject to DA and judge's interpretation. IANAL, YMMV.
