Justice Scalia did mention in the Heller decision that "dangerous or unusual" weapons could be heavily regulated or banned, but he left what exactly constitutes a "dangerous or unusual" weapon ambiguous.
Ah, but he also said the 2A protects weapons "in common use." I'd say that a rifle widely used in hunting, target shooting, competition, and home defense would qualify. Bonus points for being commonly used in law enforcement as well.
