95. I'm invoking Arnold's Law
Arnold's Law:
As an internet forum discussion on gun control grows longer, the probability of a gun control proponent implying or asserting that a participating gun owner harbors fantasies of being a motion picture character approaches 1.
For background, see (and yes, I am that same Euromutt mentioned on that page).

I'll add that in the JREF discussion that prompted user "Phrost" to create that page I stated:
Fairness does demand, of course, that there be a concomitant sanction on any gun rights proponent who uses the terms "nanny state," "(creeping) socialism," "communism," wheels out the bogus Hitler "this year will go down in history" quote, or the "In year X, country Y introduced gun control; some time after year X, Z million people died as a result of government policy" list.
I suppose that could be Gottlieb's Law, or something ( ).
