I forgot who mentioned this before, but it is a swell idea from Ohio: Temporary Emergency License to carry a gun.
Temporary Emergency License
The law allows for the issuance of an emergency license without proof of competency certification under extraordinary circumstances. The law states that upon receipt of evidence of imminent danger; a sworn affidavit; an application fee of $15, plus the cost of either a BCI or FBI background check; and a set of applicant fingerprints, a license will be issued.
It lasts for 90 days which would also allow you the time to apply for a regular permit the normal way. Specially for cases of abused women under threat by their exes and that right now they only have a piece of paper and the hope that 911 can save them from somebody bent on harming them.

Every restraining order should come with a licence to carry, no questions asked. Hell, they should probably issue them a gun and give them some time with the PD’s instructor. You can cover basic safety and marksmanship in 3 or 4 hours. Could be time well spent.
Aren’t bloomies harpies fighting a similar law in Michigan? Or West Virgin?
No idea, but I grazed over an article where they allegedly said something about women being defenseless with a gun or something.
MN has a similar law. The Sheriff is allowed to issue a temporary 30 day permit if you or someone in your household is potentially in danger. It has been used about ten times per year according to the DPS Permit to Carry Annual reports.
MN also requires all carry permits be issued or denied within 30 days, so they should have a continuous permit.
