I would be surprised if a majority of justices overruled many gun regulations. IIRC the Supreme Court has not been willing to announce the standard of review for gun regulations. Seems to me that is because the majorities in Heller and McDonald has one, two or three indecisive votes.

Do not be surprised if Kennedy almost always finds gun regulations constitutional. I think you should also not be so sure about Alito and Roberts finding many gun regulations unconstitutional.
Based on what I heard Scalia say on TV, I wouldn't count on him necessarily either. Time to impeach justices too.
