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.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
