1. Will the law crucify this woman for carrying a concealed weapon which resulted in the death of the perpatrator?
It could happen. Depends on the political climate in that jurisdiction.
2. What is the best course of action for this woman? Should she have drawn her weapon, or obliged the perp to his demands knowing that she shouldn't even have a gun in the first place?
Stupid to even bother with carrying it if you aren't going to use it when your life is clearly in danger.

Her best course of action is to suck it up and get the permit even if getting it is a pain.

Here in Philadelphia we have a court dedicated to the illegal possession of firearms. If you are caught owning an illegal weapon and have never committed a crime with it or any other crime then you will most likely get probation for three to five years. If you are caught with an illegal firearm and commit a robbery for example, it is a mandatory five year sentence not including the charges for the crime you commited.

Seeing how we border the most dangerous city in America (Camden, New Jersey) and rank sixth among cities with half a million people or more people here would be better of getting a ccw and playing it safe.
