Certainly some gun laws are constitutional as no right is unlimited. Examples would be prohibiting people convicted of certain crimes from owning firearms (that person's rights are forfeit upon his conviction), banning of the carry of weapons in "sensitive places," and prohibition on "dangerous or unusual weapons" as SCOTUS chooses to define it. However, the rub lies in the details of what crimes warrant removal of Second Amendment rights, what places are sensitive enough to ban the carry of weapons, and what types of weapons may be considered dangerous or unusual.
