What are the most common firearms in America?

What are the most popular firearms in each category? semi auto rifle, bolt/lever/pump action rifle, handguns and revolver ,and shotguns. Ive read a couple threads similar to this on ammo but im curious what platforms are the most common. I couldnt find much actual statistics that look legit unlike ammo purchases this dosnt seem to be documented very much or im just not looking in the right places.

You might find different data sets depending on your creative research techniques, what I have seen people on the interwebz call "google-fu."

This is one loosely managed 'study,' based on popularity apparently meaning sales for one year. On a good note, it has pictures. It also has links and examples of a bad way certain firearms have been used, which uses the logical sameness as a false argument:

All vampires have teeth
You have teeth (well, most of you, Im' guessing)
Therefore you are a vampire.

Anyway, the link:

At the very least, it offers you a starting point for the discussion.
