Arnold's Law

From The Martial Arts Encyclopedia
Arnold's Law

Arnold's law was proposed as a variant of Godwin's Law by Randi.org forums member Euromutt. The intent is to help marginalize common, unproductive forum posts on the subject of Gun Control.

The law reads:

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.

A corollary to this law suggests that any gun control/prohibition proponent to invoke this law gets automatically excluded from the rest of the discussion.

The law was named after action film star Arnold Schwarzenegger.
