Typically, I play with my mouse sensitivity really high, but when using certain weapons (sniper rifles, MANA AV turret) I want to drastically reduce the sensitivity. Is there a way to bind a keyboard key to reduce/increase sensitivity. I have a Microsoft IntelliMouse that cost about $5, so I don't have any special mouse options that one would have with a "gaming mouse". I'm asking specifically about Planetside 2 here, but if there's a general solution that would work with other games, I'd be happier with that. Thanks! :-)

There is nothing built in within Windows to achieve what you want, but it's certainly possible. External applications can aid you with this.

An example is Mouse Speed Switcher. AutoHotKey is also viable if you'd like to program that yourself.
