I am not that pessimistic, given the SCOTUS has never even come close to ruling outright bans permissible. The Danger is not an outright ban, the danger is an overly broad interpretation of what is "reasonable that would constitute a in practice a ban.
(Please note I am not saying to following is right or should happen. Also I am using the common media definition of assault weapons.)
IMHO The current SCOTUS would rule the following reasonable.
1. Ban on high capacity magazines.
2. Ban on assault weapons.
Might rule reasonable.
1. Ban on semi-automatic firearms.
2. Ban on pump firearms.
3. Limits on the amount of ammunition you can store.
Would not rule reasonable.
1. Ban on handguns
2. Ban on long guns.
