Law would fire sheriffs for defying gun control measures.

You can find it in new law

You can find it in new law books too, I just like looking at the original ones:

For instance, Indiana:
http://www.in.gov/legislative/ic/code/title36/ar2/ch14.html

Duties as county sheriff
Sec. 4. The coroner shall perform the duties of the county sheriff only in cases in which the sheriff:
(1) is interested or incapacitated from serving; and
(2) has no chief deputy who may perform his duties.
As added by Acts 1980, P.L.212, SEC.1. Amended by Acts 1980, P.L.125, SEC.24.

IC 36-2-14-5
Service of warrant for arrest of county sheriff; custody of jail and prisoners
Sec. 5. A warrant for the arrest of the county sheriff shall be served by the coroner or any other person to whom it may be legally directed. The coroner, who shall commit the sheriff to the county jail, has custody of the jail and its prisoners during the imprisonment of the sheriff.
As added by Acts 1980, P.L.212, SEC.1.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I don't know why the coroner is the only one

who can arrest the sheriff, but it's so. Where I used to live, the coroner would frequently mention that to the sheriff, and the humorless sheriff didn't think it was funny.
