    Even though a sawed-off shotgun or a machine gun might well be kept at home and be useful for self-defense, neither machine guns nor sawed-off shotguns satisfy the "common use" requirement
    Estimates range between 4-15 million legally owned assault weapons in the United States.  That is a lot, but comparatively, assault weapons make up only 1-2% of all guns legally owned in the US.

    The common use terminology may be able to be utilized.  However, any further pushes in regard to bans on other types of fire arms would not hold much weight using your argument.
