At the end of 2010 it was estimated that 45% of Americans own guns. If you took the percentage of guns to the number of Americans, the number rises to 90%. Of course, many of these numbers are off due to many gun transfers at gun shows which is a transfer from one private collection to another, so i…n many instances these are not registered transfers.

That is a real tough question to answer since most liberals won't admit to owning guns. There would have to be mandatory gun registration to identify who the gun owners are and the conservatives are deathly opposed to that. Liberals are in support of gun registration however they won't register thei…r guns since gun registration should apply to other people. Although it can probably be stated that American "Progressives" tend to be more concerned about the negative effects of the 2nd Amendment, (i.e., high suicide rates and murder rates), being a "liberal" doesn't preclude someone from owning a gun or enjoying a sport like deer hunting. Answer The first thing that needs to be addressed in order to answer this question is who decides who is a "liberal"; then there needs to be a count of those identified. Once you have completed that part, you may the ascertain how many of those identified own guns and what that is as a percentage of the whole. ( Full Answer )
Answer . Tax benefits compared to what exactly?. If you own your own business and it loses a lot of money, sure, it doesn't pay on the money it loses. But it lost your money.. Just like there is a tax benefit to making a chritable donation...but it will never be as much as the donation.. Yes,… in your own business you may have the ability to tax expense sme things that you may get some personal use of, but it is minor overall (if it was major, than in fact the use would become taxable income). But again, it comes back to compared to what. ( Full Answer )

Depends on what the business is worth, how much you want to put back into the business to grow. Probally more than any other employee. So you see it is not as cut and dry as you make it out to be. There there are a lot of variables to be considered. ------------- If after all the expenses have b…een paid, the taxes, the employees payroll, healthcare, the electric bill, etc etc... You can look at the checking account and see if you have enough to write yourself a paycheck. If you do good for you, if not no paycheck for you this week... You can pay yourself whatever you wish, as long as other expenses are paid first. Most small businesses find that their payroll checks sometimes come sporadically depending on the business. If the business is successful your paycheck should not be so much as to bankrupt the company. If you need a bank loan the bank will look as the reasonableness of your paycheck. ( Full Answer )

Because there are many ways to "own" stock, this question can have many answers. For example, if you own a mutual fund in your company's retirement plan, you can be said to be the "owner" of the stocks that are in the mutual fund. That's in spite of the fact that you probably don't know what they ar…e, and you have no voting control in either the stocks themselves or the mutual fund. The most commonly offered answer to this question uses this broad, and, arguably meaningless definition.. The Mutual Fund Industry group - Investment Company Institute - has a lot of data on this subject. Its 2002 study, http://www.ici.org/pdf/rpt_02_equity_owners.pdf showed that 49.5% (or 52.7 million) of US Households owned equities in some way shape or form in 2002. However, only 21 million (less than 20%) owned individual stocks outside an employee sponsored plan.. There is an important distinction here. When politicians talk about eliminating the capital gains tax, it is only these 21 million households who will pay lower taxes, because retirement investments are tax deferred while you hold them, and then taxed at regular income tax rates when you take the money out.. I haven't found a more up to date study, but than number was actually a little bit lower than it was in 1999 (peak of the Internet boom) so I doubt it's changed much.. There are also figures given for those who own equity mutual funds outside of an employee sponsored plan - 28.7 million households - as well as 35.9 million households who represent those who own either individual stocks or mutual funds or both. I'm not comfortable with either of those, as subsequent ICI studies suggest that the majority of the Mutual Fund investing households are holding their funds in IRAs or other tax deferred plans - so they, too, pay regular income tax, at the time of withdrawal, on capital gains and dividends.
