why? there is no law saying we have to lock up our guns. maybe i like being able to reach behind my door and pick up a 12 gauge or look in the hall closet and grab my AR-15 or open the drawer on my coffee table and pull out my 9mm. why should i lock them up? because some no good piece of shit might get shot because he stole my gun and pulled it on a cop?

I'm curious as to where you learned all of this from.
Businesses "run" America because they use the force of government to their advantage. It has nothing to do with the occupations of the Founders. Besides, this can mean different things depending on what you mean by "run".
Besides, you're using the term "businessman" as a catch-all here. As If you're playing off of some innate hatred we're supposed to have for business men.
The reality is that most people were engaging in business. The farmer has to sell his crops at market. That's business. It really boils down to what you consider to be business. Only about 13 were merchants. Many more were practiced in law. This should come as no surprise however, as the Founders tended to be better of economically and also well educated. This after all, is why they were reading about republicanism and the works of John Locke and such in the first place. You wouldn't expect these people to be toiling away on farms. Some like Franklin tried different things until something worked. And like Franklin, many accomplished far more than whatever business they were engaged in.
The taxes were not being collected largely due to colonial resistance. Most taxes had been repealed for this reason, but the tea tax remained. Still, this in no way invalidates the principle of the matter: being ruled by a government in which you have no say.
