It's the same as the high school football coach, if he doesn't listen to the local town business owners that support the school and the members of the school board, he will be coaching somewhere else next season.

Also more than likely the local sheriff will be a card carrying member of the NRA.
he will be the guy that waits 45 minutes for the Police to arrive in a home invasion.. then whine and cry about how slow the response was IF they showed up at all..

ahahahahahahahaha
