December 21, 2012 32 Featured Case OPINION & ORDER re 15 Motion to Dismiss. The Court finds that plaintiffs fail to state a claim upon which relief can be granted because the P.R. Weapons Act's regulation of firearms is constitutional; Puerto Rico government officials do not e njoy uncontrolled discretion in granting or denying weapons licenses or permits to carry weapons; sections 456a and 456d pass intermediate scrutiny; and the P.R. Weapons Act is not discriminatory. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS defendants' motion to dismiss pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6) and DISMISSES WITH PREJUDICE all of plaintiffs' claims. Signed by Judge Francisco A. Besosa on 12/21/2012. (CD)
