The key is not whether anyone believes, the key is whether they can get a judge to rule their way.

That line of reasoning appears to have been quashed by precedent.

Judge Benitez addressed this type of reasoning in his ruling (Page 19, Line 17) when discussing the state’s claim that LCMs are uncommon.
To the extent they [LCMs] may be now uncommon within California, it would only be the result of the State long criminalizing the buying, selling, importing, and manufacturing of these magazines. To say the magazines are uncommon because they have been banned for so long is something of a tautology. It cannot be used as constitutional support for further banning. See Friedman v. City of Highland Park, Illinois, 784 F3d 406, 409 (7th Cir. 2015) (“Yet it would be absurd to say that the reason why a particular weapon can be banned is that there is a statute banning it, so the it (sic) isn’t commonly used. A law’s existence can’t be the source of its own constitutional validity.”)
"People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
"Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently-talented fool."
