It doesn't work that way. The amount of snake owners would have to be large enough to have a politicial impact within the community.
Typically this is not the case, and the ignorance and fear of snakes wins out.
Everyone I've approached in this town about removing the snake ban either won't get involved, or, in the case of town council, won't return messages.
We have no lobby group, and no real organization. Without that, any attempt to steer the bureaucrats toward licensing is just drawing attention to the fact that we keep these "horrible creatures".
