Apologies for being late with a couple of answers.

No. Scalia did not say anything at all about that. He did write that long standing laws that prohibited felons from possession were presumptively constitutional.

Someone convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence violation is not a felon.

Try a conviction of common law battery that carried only a small fine, until years later the State changed the sentence to an indeterminate sentencing of up to 3 years. See Schrader v. Holder for that one.
