After contacting several pe3ople on this website I managed to make contact with someone who had received a "Carry and Conceal Weapons Permit" in a rural area of Northern California.
I to live in Northern California in the San Francisco Bay Are about 30 miles east of the city. It seems that in California every county is able to determine their own rules regarding who qualifies to receive a carry and conceal permit.
Since I live in a major city of over 100.000 people I thought my chance were pretty slim of receiving a permit, but I thought it never hurts to try.
I was also told by the gentleman who had a permit that it takes a lot of persistence but to keep trying.
I contacted our local sheriffs office and I told him my story as to why I felt I needed a CCW permit. I told him that I live next door to a drug dealer who beat me up one night at 2 AM for asking him to turn down the volume at the party he was having since our complex has a 10 PM quiet time rule and he immediately jumped me, punched me in the nose, and broke my glasses. When I fell to the ground he began kicking me, and everyone in his house came outside and watched. No one did anything.
Little did they know that a neighbor upstairs witnessed the whole incident and after I called the police he gave them a report, after listening to the lies that each of his witnesses gave to the police.
In California you have to have a valid reason for requesting a CCW permit. Make sure you tell the truth when you submit a request for a permit.
